Michael Parker Cross Country Challenge

Dear All

Firstly, it was very unfortunate that our Club President Michael Parker was unable to attend this event but I'm sure he would have been extremely happy with the turnout.  We pass on our thanks to him for the champagne at the turn which was very much appreciated.

The competition was fiercely contested and at the end of the 2 holes the scores were tied by 4 teams with 27 points.  The resulting play off was played from the 1st Tee to the 2nd Green with the Tee Markers strategically placed behind the tree.  3 Teams participated in the play off which was eventually won with a birdie by Paul Compton and Ray Spencer pipping Simon Smith and Matt Laws who parred the play off hole.  3rd place went to John Dempster and Tony Czajkowski, well played to all and congratulations to the worthy victors.

I'm sure you would all agree the BBQ provided was top class and we pass on our thanks to Tracy and the Team for their usual, fabulous service.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the competition and their guests for their support.  I think it's fair to say a good evening was had by all in this fun event and it was nice to see the atmosphere returning to the Club House and Beer Garden.
