Glad to say we were not held up by fog this year at Cricket St. Thomas – the weather was kind and the day ran well. Tee times started at 0800 and by the end were only 15 minutes adrift. The field of 120 players were through in actual daylight…no need for the Volvik balls I had bought for Long Sutton!…and Ian Chandler even had time for relaxed chat before the evening started, as Aaron in the pro-shop had done a sterling job on collating the results for him as they came in. Much appreciated.
On the day, Long Sutton were second with 319 points, to Cricket St. Thomas with 339. Ann McRae won the ladies longest drive. As for the year’s prizes, we collected the cup for Winners Div. 2 (so will be going up next year), and the shield for winning last winter’s Knockout. Cricket St. Thomas were second, in Div. 2, so also go up to Div 1.
Folke raised £100+ for their charity - Steve Henstridge accepted the dare to exchange outfits...Maxine to wear Steve's suit and Steve Maxine's slinky dress. Easy for Maxine, but Steve’s size 12’s would not fit into Maxine’s high heels! I had my doubts the zip would work either, but it held. Well done them!
Winter Knockout : -
