CAPTAINS DRIVE-IN REPORT
Thank you to those of you who turned out to play in the Drive-In on Saturday and thank you to Norman for managing to accommodate 100 people in 25 teams on only 18 holes! Everything went well with all teams in by 3 pm tucking into hot soup and a roll. Even the weather played its part, clearing and allowing the sun to make some much needed appearances. Thank you also to Tommy and Graham for collecting playing fees and raffle money before play and to Roger and the kitchen staff for supplying bacon rolls before play and the soup after. Thanks go to Fran and her troops for keeping the liquid flowing after play, stopping dehydration setting in! The Drive-In itself was a magnificent 198 yards, slightly left into the trees, but after the way I played, that was a good shot! Thank you to Andrew for measuring the Drive after he had managed to find the ball! The winners on the day were Chris Blackwell, Nick Blackwell, Nick Dean and Pete Tilley with a score of 57.7, well done. The Captains Charity raised approximately £150 on the day, but please do not forget the charity bottle on the bar for those visits to the water hazards!
Once again thank you to all the players and everybody who helped me on the day to make it a success.
