Captain v President Team Challenge - 31.3.18


The Captain v President team challenge took place on Saturday, 31st March, 2018, in which a disappointingly small number of only 28 members took part.  Unfortunately, due to a chest infection, the President was unable to take part and was substituted by his nephew Colin Finlay, the present Club Champion.  Although cold easterly winds and sleet showers threatened to cancel the event, a small window of opportunity arose, and it was decided to go ahead with the match but restrict it to just 9 holes, which I believe was welcomed by the intrepid members who took part.    On this occasion, the captain won his own match by two holes.    The overall result however was in favour of the President with his team beating the Captain by 8 holes to 4.    In view of the inclement weather and restricted match, no arrangements were made for individual prizes, and it was decided that these will be played for at the first monthly medal.   A lovely finger buffet, supplied by the President and his wife, was enjoyed after the match.  The entry fees of £3 per person, making a total of £84, along with a further donation of £7 from Norman Roxburgh, has been donated to the Children’s Xmas Party Fund.
