Special thanks to Margaret Stephens and Robin Gregson for cooking the sausages over a hot BBQ, for preparing the home made salads and for the excellent service. Thanks also to Lance Fredericks who gave up playing today to help in the starters shed to get everyone out onto the course, to then head off and buy the rolls, start the BBQ, buy the beer, buy the ice and get it chilled all before the rest of us finished and to then serve us all a cold one at the end of the day, with a smile.
