   This week the Warblers played at a very wet La Sella golf  but i have to stay it still played very well. Unfortunately buggies were not allowed so we lost ten Members which was a shame. We did have twenty two willing to walk and play. The competition was a fourball better ball with a twist on holes 3,6,9,12,15, and 18 both scores would count and this was Sponsored by the popular Steve Smith. We were spoiled this week as it was also the Birthday of our evergreen Warbler John Stent at 78 years young so more prizes to win.

   In First place was Richard Vass and Juke Keene who got a very good 56pts even though Juke wore an Anorak with hood for eight holes in very humid conditions. Glynn Braidley and David Baggaley came second with 52pts with David French and John Allen one point behind with 51pts in third place.

   Steve also put up two nearest the pins on holes 5 and 8 and was won by David French and Steve Cliffe repectively. There was also two longest drives both were on hole 14. The Ladies was won by Sally "hit it long and straight" Marsden a great tee shot. The Men's was won by Glynn "bam bam"Braidley.

   John Stent put up four prizes two were nearest the pins on hole 15 won by our Sponsor on the day Steve Smith and hole 13 by Glynn Braidley who was having a very good day. John also wanted to do two card draws for those unfortunate golfers who had won nothing, on this occassion the lucky golfers were Steve Head and Dave Knight. There was one singles match between Glynn Braidley and Michael Morley and to make his day complete was won by Glynn 3 & 2

   The football card was Arsenal and won by our very own Steve "Lord Lucan" Robinson just back from South Africa !!!!! Well done to all our winners today and special thanks to Steve Smith and John Stent for making it a superb day.

   There was also a surprise presentation to our Captain by the sponsor a 20 inch Driver. Are they trying to say that I am slightly on the "short side" There was a lot of over the top laughing going on !!!!!
