St. Enodoc Golf Club - Captain\'s Bonkers Day

Captain\'s Bonkers Day

What an odd name for a golf event but this day had been arranged to replace the Captain\'s Away Day. The organisation was kindly taken on by Rex Molloy and as a result no one had a clue what was going to happen and many were still confused afterwards. Suffice it to say everyone had a really good time. History was made as it was the first event in the 18 months of Tony Rounsevell\'s captaincy that we had some rain during play – well light drizzle but everyone was surprised just how warm it was with very little wind.

The format of the golf was a gentle shotgun Greensomes with play for the Men off yellow tees off full handicap and with courtesy shots for the Ladies, as a result everyone was in a relaxed frame of mind for an enjoyable day. There were teams of three pairs whose scores were to be combined scattered about the course which came as a surprise to many. Some of the team names were equally confusing – Malcolm Knight a teacher, Mike Buse a Chick? However there was some very good scoring with the winners the “Tennis” team but only by 1 point from the “Teachers” and the “Chicks & Cocks”. The members of those teams were:-

1st Tennis 108 pts
Tuck & Janine Clagett
Derrick Daniels & Bobbie Rounskvevell
Lynn Ashcroft & Pauline Meredith

2nd Teachers 107 pts
Bob Cruse & Derek Rushton
Malcolm Howells &Richard Blake
Malcolm Knight & Richard Norsworthy

3rd Chicks & Cocks 105 pts
Mike Buse & Rich Matheron
Nigel Buse & Kevin Francis
Joe Combellack & Larry Barnecutt

The golf finished in good time and we were then able to enjoy the guitar playing of Adrian Davies which was followed by Wappo\'s homemade pasties with cider or a glass of wine. The festivities were not over yet as Chris Smythe, resplendent in his very smart new uniform, organised a 40 question quiz, the winners of which were the Chicks & Cocks with a very creditable 35 points. As a final confusion the composition of that team was not as for the golf but in the spirit of the day who cares, it was a splendid event and thanks again to Captain Tony and Rex.
