John Reay Trophy
This year the trophy was played at Atherstone Golf Club between 10 local clubs each fielding eight players. The best seven scores counting to the total team score. This is considered to be quite a prestigous event!
Atherstone is a very tough course (boasts having the most Ryder cup players having been members). It was also a very wet and windy day so conditions were tough.
As predicted the trophy was won by the Home team. Your Stoneleigh side however were very worthy runners up, which was a great achievement., our team consisting of Martin Darbey, Charles McTear, Ted Jasinski, Robin Whitehouse, Keith Borer, John D Woodward, Geoff Mexon and myself.
We also fielded a second team captained by Mick Lloyd, with fellow players Peter Timothy, Peter Jamieson, Peter Cleary, Jim Jobson, Paul Steward, Mike Lovie and Rod Smith - who all braved the elements and didn’t disgrace themselves on the day
Thanks for the support of all concerned.
Matches at Home to Feldon Valley, North Warwicks And Hearsall and away to Oakridge and Shirley - not forgetting the usual Medal and Stablefords
We also have a Rumble and Shamble to look forward to, please see the noticeboard for details.
Stags Texas Scramble
Fourteen teams competed in the Stags Texas Scramble , all playing off a handicap of between 13 and 14. So very even teams but not so even scores. The winners by 0.5 strokes were the four of Keith James, Clive Stone, John Williams and Ivor Williams, just ahead of Ted Jasinski, Don Early, Roy Walker and Alan Heatley who had the same score but better back 9 to the team of Mick Brown, Peter Jamieson, Bill Crofts and Richard Parham.
Well done to all the winners.

Stags Summer Away Day
"What would you expect after a glorious few weeks of unadulterated sunshine, fast running fairways, receptive greens and a date specifically chosen to maximise those benefits.
Well it was the Stags Summer Away Day and according to certain naysayers amongst the Stags ( I know it is hard to believe that there are any) it always rains on away days. Well this year it did, in spades, but the Stags were well prepared and had come dressed for the occasion. One was even seen dressed in shorts left over from his old BNP days.
It is also over a year since the rebellion of certain Stags against the committee or Status Quo. Remember a vote was forced and the rebels managed to get 51% of the vote. Well little has happened since of the progress promised. No new money that was promised has come into the Stags, worries about the lack of enough Irishmen to play in the Four Nations have surfaced, the Stags income is being eroded by rising inflation, but anarchy has not quite taken over yet. Time will tell.
Back to the Summer Away Day. First it was the worst day of Summer, second there were a few late cry offs but there were 39 stoic, brave, some would say foolish souls ready to contest the rain and the undoubted challenge of the Brandon Wood golf course. Some of course stayed the course for the undoubted pleasure of sampling the wonderful ale and delicious food at the Royal Oak. Some even felt it would have been better to avoid the golf and go straight to the pub.
We were joined by a selection of new Stags and novices to the Away Day experience, we hope they enjoyed it and will come again. We cannot promise sun but we can promise good courses, good food, and fine company. There were a couple of good scores and several adequate scores but, as usual, the Stags generally failed to live up to their expectations and recorded some fairly ordinary scores.
Mick Brown won the Nearest the Pin and Roy Pickering the longest drive. Terry Wing made a giant leap from his previous performances at Brandon to come third, Tony Lee, a new Stag, came second but the outstanding performance of the day came from the winner Keith James with 39 points, in all that rain.
More importantly a raffle raises £200 for the Captains Charity. Well done the Stags.
