February Medal

February Medal

Today was the monthly medal - only ten of us were able to play  - well done to each for taking part.

It was cold and fairly still at the start, but the westerly wind picked up and shifted more southerly as we played. 

Mark had been unable to cut the greens yesterday because of the horrendous weather... and he wasn't sure how it would be for us today but the course was surprisingly dry after that downpour!

We had one brief shower... but we all hurried on and everyone except the final pairing got back in before the forecast rain came. When it did arrive was heavy and cold.

It was lovely to have so many come for the charity cheque presentation afterwards.

Some had lunch... delicious - thanks Ashleigh; others were working on the card - marking and eclectics - thank you.

The results of the Medal were as follows - they were very close!

Sue D was third (on countback) with a Nett 79; Ruth just pipped her to second on that countback. 
In first with a great Nett 75 was Jane. Well played Jane!

Presentation of Sue S's cheque,

After the medal results we then had the Charity cheque presentation. 

Firstly, Lyn presented Mary with a cheque from Sue S. Sue had raised money for the Children's Hospice South West when they celebrated her Mum's 100th Birthday at the end of last year!

Mary is the Community Fundraiser  for the Charity. 

Then Lyn presented the cheque from her Captain's year.  This was for over fifteen hundred pounds - a fabulous total!

Cape Ladies' Charity cheque for Children's Hospice South West.

Mary then gave us a thought provoking talk describing the background to the hospice and the work that it does every day. Many thanks everyone for making today a good one. 

Next Saturday is a Waltz... a fun competition played in threes. Those of you that couldn't make it today we hope you are better soon and can join us again before long.

Next Sunday (12th) is the Men's Wills semi final at Perranporth and several of us are planning to go and support them.

The Knockout competitions sign up sheet is on the board as are the sheets for the Friendly and League matches.
