The raffle was won by Barbara Wright, the ball sweep reimbursed a few ladies who had lost theirs in lake Edna & the fifth damn trap. Thanks to John who had the course in excellent condition, it is a credit to the club. Thanks must also go to those involved in the upgrade of the course toilet facilities.
A beautiful lunch was enjoyed by all. Thanks to all the ladies involved in setting up, preparing & supplying the meal & the clean-up, your efforts made for a successful day. Congratulations to Captain Fozzy, you stressed for no reason…the field ran very smoothly!
