Presentation of chocolates for Easter was highlighted by President Jan in her ‘bunny ears’ and as you can see by the pictures she is able to carry off with great aplomb and a little amusement! Winners on the day – Pat Clarke Div 1, Jan Weiley Div 2 and Denise Manfredotti Div 3.
April kicked off with the Bendigo Bank Monthly Medal, Div 1 was won by a very happy Kaye Mckay with a terrific score of 69, and as an added bonus Kaye also won the Goodwill Plate, which puts her in the running to become the NSW Winner. This is determined by the number of strokes (if any), the nett result is under the AWCR of the course on the day of play. Goodonya Kaye. The winner of Div 2 was Maureen Muncey, (69) who also won the March medal – 2 in a row! A great effort Maureen. Another extremely happy winner was Robyn Taylor in Div 3 (72), this is Robyn’s first medal.
Pennants has started for the year, with rounds 1 and 2 unable to produce a team victory, however in the 3rd round Banksia had a win and Wattle squared – so we’re on the up and up – go Everglades.
Everglades Open Invitation Day was a great success with 176 starters for the day, 88 in the morning field and 88 in the afternoon field. Unfortunately those of us who played in the morning copped a drenching for a few holes, which made playing fabulous golf shots challenging! But as golfers we are ever dauntless, – we soldiered on with little complaint (I say that mockingly!) President Jan, Mon Capitan Wendy and the committee made the day appear seamless, and the spread for both morning and afternoon tea was tremendous. The winners at both sessions were won by visitors, and congratulations to both teams, hopefully that ensures they will be back next year. Everglades got a 3rd in the morning and a 2nd and 3rd in the afternoon.
Charity Day was greeted by a cloudy sky – no rain though. 142 starters for the day – 84 men and 58 women. The winners were announced at a presentation at the end of play. The team event with a score of 94 was won by Leonie Wheeler, Lynette Magill, Carol Hartwell and, (a ring in) Darrin Turner. Leonie Wheeler held off the field in Div 1 with a score of 39, and Nina Skripkina in Div 2 scoring 40 points. Marg Hockley was the lucky winner of the BBQ in the Charity Raffle, and Pat Myles winning a round of golf at Kooindah Waters.
Tat tah ‘til next time.
