..….and then the wind dropped and the sun shone; what had started out chilly, the odd shower and grey turned into a lovely afternoon which certainly was to the benefit of the later starters. 32 pairs entered to play in the Bray Bowl, one of the Club's oldest competitions, first played for in 1902. The format was, as always, a Mixed Foursomes Medal which is withour doubt the hardest format in which to score well with no hiding place for a disaster.

The scores were exceptionally good helped not only by the weather but also the excellent condition of the course and particularly the greens along with the rough being so light this early in the year. Anders and Trudie Tensjo continued their run of good form to win yet again with a terrific net 67.5. Those in the prizes of wine and very seasonal Easter eggs were:-

    1st    Anders & Trudie Tensjo         67.5
    2nd   Sam Jarvis & Sarah Fisher      69.5
    3rd    Andy Bunt & Terri Gliddon   71
    4th    Charles & Mary Rayment       73
    5th    John Paul & Ruth East            74.5
