What has now become an Annual event, with added Ladies, was again a tremendous success. A grand total of 22 Seniors and 13 Ladies "attacked" the Woods course with vigour (and some trepidation due to the wet conditions), the Club allowing us to organise a two tee start.

The winning team was Steve Atkins, Ken Claxon and Jen Hallett with 78 points.
Second place team was Chris Daynes, Roy Sanders and Sue Raynor with 74 points on count back
Nearest the pins for the men on the 4th and 15th were Steve Atkins and Andy Wood respectively. Nearest the pins for the ladies on the 4th and 15th were Judi Downard and Kim Davies respectively.
The "Best Dressed" Lady was Jacquie Francis, the Best Dressed man was Bob Privett with special recognition for "Casino Man" - Ken Claxon.

The real winners were the Captain's Charities as we raised £380 in total, to be shared equally between the respective charities

Thanks to Nikki from the Hotel in the Halfway House, Vicky in the Claret Jug, the Ladies, our old favourite Phil Turrell for all his organastion for the day.
