LADIES’ CHRISTMAS COMPETITION AND LUNCH – 13TH DECEMBER
Despite the murky conditions, 57 ladies played. I gather that the format of one club and a putter was the topic of many a conversation before the day! My playing partners were Jo Cole and Ronnie Simpson and we were doing really well until we got ourselves into a bunker and took 3 shots to get out; sadly this was only on the 2nd hole! Despite this we had great fun. I hope you all enjoyed your meal and my rendition of The Nativity, even though I did try, on a couple of occasions, to re-christen Joseph, ‘David!’
3rd Prize went to Sue Everatt, Joan Lawson and Cath Grisewood with 41 points.
In 2nd place, on count back, were Elizabeth Kenyon, Katrina Gillum and Helena Price, also with 41 points.
First prize went to Barbara Waddington, Heather Doody and Doreen Harper with 40 points.
Nearest the pin on the 6th were Elizabeth Kenyon, Helena Price and Katrina Gillum.
Well done to all of the prizewinners – it was so close for the 2nd and 3rd places.
A big “Thank you’” to Lady Vice Captain Chris for all of her help, to Meg and Julie for organizing and resolving the competition and thanks also to Elizabeth Kenyon for being Treasurer on the day. I would also like to thank Owen and Emily for being Mr & Mrs Claus and Alex and Snax for making the Pom Pom snowmen. Thanks also go to Mac, our Music Maestro. Finally, I’d like to thank you all for taking part and entering into the Christmas spirit.

CHRISTMAS COMPETITION AND CAROLS – 18TH DECEMBER
The weather was somewhat better for this than for the Ladies’ Christmas Competition. We had a shotgun start at 11.00am and twenty teams took part. There were mixed teams, teams of men only and one team of ladies. It was a really fun day. The variety of Christmas jumpers was absolutely amazing! We tucked in to chicken pie; David and Jane Moore entertained us with some Christmas songs and were joined by Terry Beech and Graham Davies. We then all sang Christmas carols. We really must practice the Twelve Days of Christmas for next year – or perhaps it’s more fun off the cuff! Thank you to all of our musicians.
NEW YEAR’S EVE
What a fantastic night! There was a great atmosphere, the entertainment was brilliant and it was difficult to find a spot on the dance floor! Many people helped to make the evening a success including Mr. Captain and Paul who ran the ‘Win yer Dinner Lottery!!’ Thanks go to Geoff & Anethia Sellars for all of their help and to Snax and Alex. Thanks must also go to our bar and kitchen staff, who served us all so very well.
JULIE NAPIER’S 1000k CHALLENGE
Well done Julie, on completing the challenge – what an achievement! If you haven’t yet paid your sponsorship monies, could you please place them in an envelope marked ‘Julie’s 1000k challenge’ and put them in the box? Julie informs me that she intends to do the 1000k challenge again this year, also the 3 Peaks and play more golf – how does she do it?! Best of Luck Julie!
