Our annual Captains Away Day was held on Wednesday 29 June with 35 players making the trip to Melton Mowbray. The weather could only be described as horrendous, with non-stop rain for the whole day. The majority of players heroically completed all 18 holes in very difficult conditions. We obviously did not see the course at its best, but with the exception of some standing water the greens were very good. Melton Mowbray made us very welcome and provided us with excellent catering. It was great value day out. The winning team was Mike Pearson, Ken Jones, Dennis Wilcockson and Charlie Kean. A great effort on the day. (They must all have been on survival training.) Nearest to the pin prizes were won by Norman Ellis, Chris Higgins and Pete Dakin.
I would personally like to thank everyone who turned out to support me, this was much appreciated. Finally, everyone who was not wearing a Seniors tie or Club tie at dinner was fined £1 each which was donated to the Club Captains Charity.
