Non-Score-cher, scorcher… see what I did there? Oh nevermind.
Fantastic weather this weekend – Swashbucklers didnt stand up very well at the first Medal of the golfing year. Indeed it all looks a bit too bottom-heavy on Sunday’s scoreboard with Swindlers in the strongest position holding the rest of the table up. What happened?
I wonder if Arsenal’s *cough* storming FA Cup victory carried too many hangovers to Sunday’s comp. Probably not. Only three weeks till the Club Champs and more medal fun (14th & 15th June) and the sign up sheet is on the board.
On the positive side, Phil and I broke into top10 on Saturday’s comp, Al Gollop, James, Scottie and Simon did the same on Sunday.
Comp planned for day2 of Club Champs.
To be confirmed, but there are plans to have a competition on the Sunday of the club champs for all non-qualifiers, playing off the 10th. Intention is to have more people in the clubhouse in the clubhouse, supporting qualfiers as they finish the round and seeing the champ’s crowned.
More news as and when.
Two more dates – Celebration Day and a Swashbuckler Finals Day
Please keep Saturday 12th July free as there are confirmed plans to have a Swindle BBQ after the blue Bogey competition. Called the ‘Celebration Day’, it is a round up of a the birthdays, events and handover of Captainship for the Swindle.
There is also an idea to have a Swashbuckler Championship held end of June. Possibly 21st or 22nd June, maybe 29th June… whenever most people can be around.
This would be a one-off event, with a cheesy little trophy for overall winner. Details tbc (whether an extra fiver is asked to add to a prize fund/wine etc, whether its off Swindle or club etc.). Not everyone can make it, but could be good.
Please keep an eye on the website for more info.
In other news, Phil and I got smashed up at Westerham 5&4 in our foursomes match. That is all.
