28th March - the last Winter Stableford.

23 players turned up for the last winter stableford. A benign spring morning with the greens in remarkably good condition encouraged some quality golf.

22 points were returned by Chris Beaumont and George Langlands, Chris winning on the countback. David Parker broke Alistair Lambie's recent monopoly of nearest at 7.

The birdie famine of recent weeks was ended with birdies by George Langlands at the first, Jim McAuslin at 7, David Wallace and Brian Taylor both at 9.

The summer format is to remain as stableford for the first Thursday of the month and strokeplay for the others. Revised handicaps will be issued.

Thanks to Jim McAuslin for arranging the plant donation to Andrew's Gardening Team-the ladies declined the initial offer of chocolates and requested some plants for the course instead--what will power--or is it won't power?
