The hot weather, do I hear grumbles it is too hot? Are we ever satisfied? Rosemary Digby, ably helped by Pat Edworthy organised a splendid day at Woodbridge. In spite of the many hiccups! Welcome to the life of an organiser! There was a suggestion that we should rename ourselves the V & B Old Crocks! However our hostess met it all with her usual calm and batted not an eyelid. Not that we could see anyway. Well done Rosemary and Pat. The winners were Rosemary Digby, Winter Rose and Clive Rowe with 74 points. Second were Gillian Gardner Smith, Vivienne Cullen and David Robinson with 67 points. A special prize went to Val Garrod, Pearl Webb and David Sears the walking wounded for their nine hole score of 42 points.
The next event is at Richmond Park Norfolk on 9 August organised by Julia Amey. Buggies are available and those needing a buggy please phone Julia on 01603 867407 so she can book and arrange teams accordingly.

Autumn Break Hanbury Manor, Hertfordshre on 11, 12, 13 October.
Price per person for two sharing a room is £314 for two nights, three day's golf and two three course dinners. I'm afraid the single supplement is expensive at Hanbury Manor and the price for the break is £474 for single occupancy.
Michael Brown has arranged an Autumn Golf and Wine Tour 24 Oct - 3 Nov in Douro Valley. David and I are going. I am sending details in separate attachment. Please let me know if interested.
Hasta la vista,
