Had a great day at The Addington on Thursday, the weather had been terrible all week and looked to carry on for the rest of the week apart from a 5 hour gap Thursday morning, when we were playing!, it shines on the righteous! Originally intended to be an eight aside match, Swashbucklers vs The Bett’s Brigade, I couldn’t get anyone apart from Graham Loveless (how desperate can you be!) who was free, so I was going to postpone it until next year but the guys said no, let’s go an do it with eight, so off we went.
After a hearty breakfast in the café in Selsdon, we trucked off to the club. Rob had organised the day for me so thank you mate. We sorted the betting, plenty of it, and drew the cards, I played with Mick, Steve and Dom and Graham played with Bob, Danny and Barry. The course was in good condition and we had a great round, all in the sun. Dom and me got beat, fairly and squarely, Steve won the overall with 31, all the par s’3 were squared up and it looked like I just scraped a tenner back with the blind four’s…I duly collected my tenner and was happy with that…until Danny, noticed his card had been marked incorrectly, once the point adjustment was made, I ended up having to give the tenner back, which I only did today as Mick had gracefully declined it back on Thursday.
We had a good drink after and a most of us…not the young one…trucked on to the The Tudor Rose after, it is all a blur after that, isn’t it Bob?
Great day with a great bunch of guys and Graham Loveless.
Latest news from Portugal, Bob won today with 37points, good scoring mate.
