Captain's Newsletter - 23 Jan 2016

Date For Your Diary
Friday 19th February - QUIZ NIGHT with a professional Quizmaster – Just £10 including food (or £5 without the meal). Bring your partners and friends to make a team. This is being organised by Chesfield Downs, so for more details – check the club social notice board in the bar area.

Saturday – SNOW !!!! Course was closed, so we were unable to play the Team Alliance competition.

No snow, but VERY ICY. A bracing minus 5 degrees that morning! But with no wind and blue skies it didn’t feel so cold. A competition of Double On The Odds produced some great scores. Excellent putting put Rogie Taylor into the winning position with a magnificent 30 points. Kathy Dale 2nd with 27 points. Jackie Reid in 3rd with 26 points.

The thermostat said the weather was much warmer – a positively balmy 1 degree above zero. But with the wind chill factor, it felt much colder out there on the course. Week 3 of our Winter Stableford competition gave us more good scores. Susanna Chan scored a great 19 points and Pauline Humphrey topped even that with an excellent 20 points. Definitely good cards for the final results in a few weeks’ time. Still four more rounds to play, so we will all be chasing the leaders.
