This week the Orba Warblers were at Oliva Nova for the playing of the prestigious Kellaway Plate sponsored by our popular member Glynn Braidley. A full house of 40 members all trying for that magical stableford score to bring home the valuable Plate. We found the course in reasonable condition even though a lot of maintenance had been done.

   Just one division saw that special score realised from Paul Warbey (Hcap 20)with a stunning 44pts, second was Tony Young (Hcap 15.4) with a great par breaking score of 39pts, third with a very good also par breaking score was Derek Gray (Hcap 22.7) with 38pts (well done you three). Fourth was Richard Vass (Hcap 8.8) with a good 36pts, in fifth place with 34pts was Steve Cliffe (Hcap 11.8) winning on countback from David French (Hcap 10.7) also with 34pts and in sixth place.

   There were four nearest the pins this week on holes 3,6,11 and 16 and won by Robin Wheatley, Michael Morley, Bob Edwards and Derek Gray respectively. There were two two's achieved today by Dave Knight and Michael Morley both on hole 6.

   One Doubles match was played today between Glynn Braidley and Roger Vicars against Robin Wheatley and Malcolm Robinson and after 18 holes they were all tied so a putt off should have been played but they were so mentally drained they decided the match with the Captain tossing the coin, heads it was allowing Glynn and Roger to go through and hard luck to Robin and Malcolm.

   The football card this week was Stoke City and won by our Adorable Stafford Pemberton a very "happy man". The captain thanked all the Members patience on a very long day especially the those playing near the end. Well done to all our winners. Lastly thanks to our sponsor this week Glynn Braidley on some very good prizes.

   Next week Wednesday 12th October the Warblers travel to El Saler for a stableford competition. With a first tee start of 10.00am please arrive by 9-15am for registration. To book please contact David at dr.knight1207@googlemail.com or phone 634307407.
