Men’s Invitation Day took place on Saturday 31st August which turned out to be decidedly better than the weather forecast and thirty four pairs battled it out in the bright and breezy conditions. Scoring was good and the competition was close with the top six pairs separated by three points. On returning to the clubhouse, players enjoyed an excellent meal provided by Wappo, Dave and their team. Captain Bob Cruse had to rely on his “teacher’s voice” for the presentation after it became clear that microphones don’t bounce, Chris was duly fined for this misdemeanour!
The prizes were as follows:
1st Martin Biddle & Matt Morris 41 points
2nd Mike Lovett & Colin Nolan 40 points (after count back)
3rd Pete Liddicoat & Matt Wonacott 40 points
4th Andy Carthew & Ian Crombie 40 points
Nearest the pin

There were only three players who achieved a two on the day winning 32 balls a piece, they were John Radford, Pete Liddicoat and Martin Biddle.
