     This Saturday coming is a Special Competition Day. The last was postponed owing to the highly successful Croquet/Bowls Day.

    This Saturday Andy Muchall will supervise a MIXED DOUBLES competition. You do NOT need to find a partner. Partners will be drawn on the day with a significant handicap to any all-male pairings left over at the end of the Draw. Otherwise the usual handicaps will apply. ALL ABILITIES WELCOME!

    There will be a number of Spot Prizes which will be issued along the way on Saturday but these will be kept a mystery until the actual event.

    Depending on numbers there will be a reserve competition. Both greens will be used. Our resident Mary Baker has agreed to provide a Cream Tea in the Interval.

    This is a not-for-profit event so entry to the Competition including Cream Tea will be £2:50 and after deductions for the Cream Tea and Spot Prizes all monies will be distributed in Prize Money.

    A list will be up in the Pavilion until Friday or you can e-mail me (this helps catering arrangements). If you just turn up on the morning of the event we MIGHT let you in but please arrive early if you are doing this and tell me on your arrival.

    THIS EVENT IS EXPECTED TO START AT 12:00 MIDDAY AND LAST UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 4:00 P.M. (NB No admission to this event if you arrive unannounced after 11:50 a.m.)

    NO PRACTICING BEFORE START TIME!
