Notes from our roving reporter in the clubhouse noted Ken Brown shot his age again. Well done Ken.
Rex Kermode came all the way from Tathra to force some very serious golfers to abandon golf and seek refuge from the gale force winds at the bar. The ploy worked because three hours later the bar was still standing but only because they were still propping it up.
President of the Board, Rodger Chappell while not condoning such action said that in the interests of club unity he would fully support such selfless acts. It is not often that members would abandon very good rounds of golf to protect the bar. Rodger is also inquiring about whether they could in fact be nominated for some sort of Nobel Prize.
Golf Vice President Dave Schmid admits that his game is at the moment “ A work in progress “. He states that his chakras are not aligned and that as a result he has way too much Ying and not enough Yang It has been suggested that the members crowd fund him so that he could seek professional help.
The total to date is a surprising $4.85. So you see Dave. We Do Love You.
