It was suggested that Ray Farr should hire an aircraft to take all the Mals off to Bermuda for our 2018 Golf Day, for some reason he declined, although not very politely!
I must say that Ray did manage to get a very good deal, so it was a return to Sutton Coldfield Golf Club. 28 Mals for the golf plus Geoff Snell as Chauffeur/Caddy to Mr Farr. Good to see the return of Matt (2 bags) Hughes and Richard (big dick) Flowers, we could do with you two on the trip for the cricket team. We were joined in the evening for the meal and prizegiving by the Mals who couldn’t join us for the golf: Andy Smith, Roy Bound, Harry Marsland and Geoff Snell.
Some really good scores topped the field, and as 3 Mals had 37 points, it was decided on countback over the back 9. Our thanks to the President who most generously supplied all the prizes this year. Even the Golf Organisator excelled himself this year and the trophy was awarded to the correct winner! (make the most of it though, it may not happen again).
I am sure that we are all looking forward to our new President’s Golf Day and understand that he has been ploughing up a few fields in readiness for the event.
