After the overnight thunder and lightning the forecast was for a cloudy day with a good chance of rain until late afternoon. However once again the Rock micro-climate confounded the forecasters and the twenty-four pairs entered into this years Ian Waters Memorial Trophy were rewarded with a lovely summers day, warm and with enough South Easterly breeze to lower the back nine scores.
Ian Waters was the Secretary of the Club immediately before Tuck Clagett and this competition marks his untimely death whilst still in office. The format of Mixed Greensomes Stableford usually leads to high scoring when the conditions are good and so it proved today with relatively new Members showing the way on the Church Course. Those in the money were
1st Carole & Chris Waights 38 points
2nd Annie & Norman Hawkey 35 points
3rd Annie & Bob Cruse 34 points
1st Keith & Barbara Willmott 43 points
2nd Frank & Lorna Harper 40 points
Also present today was Sophie Barber from Cancer Research UK and which will form the subject of a separate post.
