Stags Summer Away Day

Seniors Noticeboard : 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.

 RAIN.

 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.
