SENIORS' MATCH REPORT V CARHOLME
For our penultimate home match, we entertained Carholme Seniors . The weather was kind to us and the course, as usual, was in excellent condition, thank you John and team. After a few anxious minutes before we started, we were able to field a full team. Thanks to Barrie Blakemore for agreeing to turn out at very short notice, (about 2 minutes!), but thanks also go to John Blow who turned out almost without any notice, but couldn’t stay for the meal. This meant that Barrie was able to stand down.
Thanks also go to Sarah and Sue, who made everyone welcome, and special thanks to Pete Kennelly and John Morgan for the excellent Halfway House.
The games were played in great atmosphere and although some of the results were close, the match ended in a win for Blankney 6 / 2.
Thanks to all players who took part.

Seniors Match Report v. Sleaford Seniors
On Monday we played the return match with Sleaford , at Sleaford. The weather once again was kind to us and we were able to field a full team. As usual Sleaford made us very welcome and treated us to an excellent meal after the match. All the games were very close but Sleaford managed to get the important points and won the match by 4 ½ to 3 ½ .
Our next match is against Carholme at Blankney on Thursday, August 22nd, and we are still a player short, so please let me know if you can play.

5th ….. John Blow and David Wilson
4th ….. Andy Craft and Don Ridley
3rd ….. Bruce Hayes and Dennis French
2nd ….. Mike Merrison and Bob Manser

We also had prizes for Nearest the Pin and Longest Drive.
My thanks are due to everyone who helped, Joyce, Pat and Lynda, for their help at the halfway House. Special thanks to Sarah, who helped to set up the draught beer contraption at the halfway house. The beer was O.K. !! Thanks also to John Wood who organised the day, and to Don Ridley who organised the draw for the cards.
Last but by no means least, many thanks to all members who turned out to play, and indeed, turned out their pockets !! We raised the princely sum of just over £311.00 for Prostate Cancer U.K. Brilliant.
Thank you all once again.

SENIORS' MATCH REPORT STOKE ROCHFORD (AWAY)
On Monday July 29th we visited Stoke Rochford for the return match. As usual the course was excellent. We had a full side of sixteen players and the match was played in a very enjoyable manner, in very good weather. We started the day, as usual, with a very substantial breakfast from their buffet, which everyone enjoyed.
To go to Stoke Rochford and get a Half would be a good result, but it wasn’t to be, Stoke reversed the score when we beat them at Blankney and beat us by 6 ½ to 1 ½ .
Our first defeat of the season. But this does not reflect the closeness of the Individual games, so thank you to all our team members for their efforts.

Seniors Match Report: v. Boston Cowbridge
The match was played in very hot weather! We had a full turnout of 8 pairs and a very close match was played on our excellent course. The Boston team were all very complimentary about the condition of the course and many compliments were paid to John Hart and his team, who were also out there in the heat with us.
Our chef, John, prepared a very acceptable meal of Braised Steak and vegetables, followed by a very tasty Cheesecake. Our thanks go to all the catering staff including Sarah in the bar, for their help in welcoming our guests from Boston. Thanks to you all.
As stated earlier it was a very close match which ended in an honourable half.
This means we are more than half way through our fixture list without defeat.
Well done teams ! !
