In a spectacular entrance, emerging from their motor home through a cloud of blue smoke, our Captain for 2016 - Dave Wilkinson and his cronies, Ladies' Captain - Claire Walker, Junior Captain - Jake Croshaw.. and Seniors' Captain - Chris Frith, re-enacted a scene from the popular American TV series 'Breaking Bad'. In 'Breaking Bad' the main character, chemistry teacher Walter White, embarks on a career manufacturing and selling illegal drugs. In contrast Dave worked in the pharmaceutical industry researching into, and developing, new drugs, albeit legal ones. The 'bad guys' handed out samples - blue coloured candy - for the spectators to try!!
Despite the damp weather and the excesses of New Year's Eve celebrations there was an excellent turn out to see almost all of our Captains overcome their nerves and make it past 'Fraggle Rock' towards the green. The sale of pegs raised nearly £400 towards this years’ Captains Charities, Prostate Cancer and Macmillan Nurses. As usual the clubhouse was buzzing with all enjoying the refreshments laid on by Paul and the formalities of speeches and blazer presentations.
We wish Dave, Claire, Jake and Chris every success in their Captains' year.
