   This week the Warblers travelled to El Bosque for the playing of the Autumn Trophy a stableford competition. Steve Cliffe sponsors this beautiful Crystal Glass Trophy and again  supplied some really nice prizes "thank you Steve".

   Twenty two members played today and found the course in fairly good condition with the greens putting very well. It is always nice to play this well respected golf course.

   There were two divisions this week with first to third places on offer.

   Winning division one and the Trophy on countback was Michael "hovis" Morley (Hcap 8.9) with a very good 39pts. Our Captain Dave Knight (Hcap 9.3) came second with 35pts but only on countback and pipping Steve Smith (Hcap 4.6) also with 35pts.

   Our division two winner and just losing out to Michael on countback was our fast improving Sally Marsden (Hcap 30.0)with an impressive 39pts, second with 34pts was Glyn Walters (Hcap 25.5) in third place came John Allen (Hcap 21.0).

   The four nearest the pins winners were Tony Young, Steve Smith, Sally Marsden and Michael Taylor on holes 4, 8, 12 and 14 respectively. The two longest drives winners were Sally Marsden for the Ladies and Steve Smith for the Men. Three two's were achieved today Steve Smith and Steve Robinson on hole 8 and Michael Taylor on hole 14. The football card winner was Steve Robinson with Blackpool, this was his second win in three weeks and he hurried to the bar to buy drinks, Then we all woke up and realised it was just a "dream". Well done to all our winners today and a very big thank you to Steve Cliffe for his generous sponsorship.

   Next week the Warblers travel to Bonalba for another week in the Eclectic competition. Our first tee start is 10-00 so please arrive by 9-15 for registration. Guests are welcome subject to availability and current handicap certificate.
