Today we had a fun, teams competition, and as it was Bastille Day, we gave it a French theme: “trois coulers, rouge, blanc et blue”. Many ladies got into the spirit of the day and came dressed in their red, white and blues. One lady even had a French flag and had dyed some of her hair, while others sported berets and stripes. We did have some nibbles for them to enjoy as they came through from the 18th or 8th hole. No frogs legs or snails, but some French bread and choux pastry (in the form of cream puffs), which were enjoyed by the ladies.
Everyone was put into teams of three and then they had to decide who was red, who was white and who was blue. This was because they had instructions to follow after finishing each green, regarding their stableford points. For example, add all stableford points together or multiply blue’s points by three, or add blue and white’s points together etc.
The winning team with 81 points was Ann Percy, Julie Owen and Jose Heale. Second was the team of Harriet Byelich, Chris Edkins and Vicki Kimberley with 74 points. Third equal was the team of Imelda Woolston, Wallis Jones and Margaret Nelson and the team of Evelyn Heale, Karen Kingan and Barbara Taylor who both had 73 points.
There was one two scored by Wallis Jones on the 4th hole.
Barbara Taylor won the prize for the best dressed on the day and Harriet Byelich was runner up.
