June 2015 Veterans Newsletter

1st June 2015 Competition
Today was our Vets Championship which was transferred from May due to the wet weather. It was also the first day of winter and Mother Nature did not disappoint. Some members even resorted to a bit of alliteration to describe how “freezing” it was. There were 56 starters today and everyone found the going a bit tough with no one able to break 70. However the competition was still close in Division 1 with Ray Orr emerging victorious with a Nett 71 on a countback from Lance Fredericks. Division 2 was also hotly contested with Peter Young winning, also with a Nett 71 by a stroke from Mal Garrett. The Gross event was not as close and congratulations goes to Steve Rippon who won the Championship for the second year running with an excellent round of 74.
The full list of winners are:
Division 1 1st Ray Orr 71 Nett (c/b)
2nd Lance Fredericks 71 Nett

As I predicted in last month’s newsletter, our fightback would start at the Links. True to form we had a much stronger showing and on the day we finished equal second with Port Kembla on 201 points, only a single point behind the winners Links Shell Cove on 202 points. Congratulations to Brian O’Hare, Pat Paris and Geoff Reynolds who all scored 35 points and to Arthur Bosanquet, Ray Orr and Peter Young who all scored 32 points. A special thank you to Ray Orr who filled in at late notice. Ray had a scheduled work day on that day but managed to swap with a colleague to enable himself to play for the team.

At the start of play Kiama held a 35 point lead over us but we managed to cut that lead by 20 points to be only trailing them by 15 points after two rounds. There is a log jam at the top of the leader board and the progressive scores are:

Kiama              385
Port Kembla   375
Wollongong   373
Jamberoo       370
The Grange    370
Links               353
Russell Vale   325

Our next game is scheduled for next Monday 6th July at The Grange. The nomination form is on the board, but at the moment there are only three names on the list. So if you are available next Monday, can you please put your name down by this Wednesday or give me a call on 0418 612 881. Your help would be greatly appreciated and you might just end up being a part of a premiership winning team.
