Despite the forecast we had sunny weather for the annual Captains Day festivities on Saturday 6th August albeit the wind did increase later in the afternoon. 18 teams of four players took part in this Dallas Scramble event which was played at great pace and produced some excellent scores. The day was not without incident with Anders Tensjo having a hole in one at the 5th hitting a 5 iron into the wind and straight into the hole. Nigel Buse managed to hit his ball into the St Austell Brewery beer tent whilst playing the 9th despite it being beside the 10th tee.

The nearest the pin for the Ladies (on the 8th) and also the longest drive (7th) were both won by Ruth East, Terry Buscombe won the nearest the pin for the Men (17th) and Mike Roach the longest drive (2nd). The team winners were:-

1st John Pease Tony Rounsevell Norman Hawkey Penny Moon 58.3
2nd Martin Gargan Will Rich Edna Alford Anders Tensjo 59.8
3rd Kenton Williams Mike Jarvis Nigel Meadows Di Dingle 60.3
4th Martin Biddle Peter Bendall John Hobbs Lynn Ashcroft 60.3
5th Andy Bunt Jane Pain John Carhart Jane Bendall 61.5

After the prizegiving there was a really terrific barbeque with an enormous selection of items to choose from and it proved to be an excellent way to round off a really good day.
