Monday's Mad Competition
Subject: Monday's mad competition.
Well that was fun, or was it? I must admit I had fun sorting out the cards, perhaps there wasn't enough space on the cards to put all the scores correctly on. Most Stags seem to understand the concept even if some had difficulty putting the scores on the card correctly. Some multiplied the bonus wrongly, some didn't multiply the score on roulette, our new Vice Captain needs some more lessons on filling in a card properly but apart from these errors quite a few cards had the correct score . Scores ranged from 54 to 109, the key seemed to be picking the right bonus holes and both playing them well, obvious really.
Congratulations to the three winners, overall winners Roy Pickering and Paul Abbott (will someone have a quiet word with Paul about their handicaps), second were John D and Chris McHale and third were Brian Churchill and Robin Cathcart, who scored a massive 48 points on one hole.
The next special competition will be a Turkish delight sclumble( just kidding) on February 26th.

Stags Christmas Comp
Monday 4 December was the Stags Christmas competition and lunch. 45 Stags played a par three one club competition before lunch, they played with good humour and enjoyed the challenges posed by that difficult Competition secretary. Before I tell you the result, however, I have been asked to update you on the progress of the Stags rebellion.
As you all know this happened about 18 months ago when a vote was demanded to withdraw from the aegis of the Stags committee. The vote was won by the rebels by 51 votes to 49.
Well not much has happened since then apart from there being a split in the rebels camp between hard leavers and soft leavers. Negotiations for the initial principles have still not been concluded. Apparently the three initial areas of dispute have been difficult for the rebels to understand or come to any consensus on.
The first relates to the amount of money the rebels are prepared to pay to compensate the committee for their pensions, long term commitments, and loss of office. Not yet resolved.
The second relates to the safeguards to be given to our Stags of European descent, like M. Blancmaison, M.Michel le Brun, M. Abbé, M/Jacquesfils etc on how would their handicaps be administered and who would adjudicate in case of a dispute. Not yet resolved.
The third is perhaps the most difficult and relates to the future of the Four Nations competition, will it be the three and a half nations or will both orange and green be allowed to be worn.Not yet resolved.
Well it appears that the rebels cannot get their act together at all but as I am merely an observer I cannot comment but I will try to keep you up to date.
But back to the day itself. Golf was played in various levels of skill, groans and cheers resounding across the greens. But most stags were more keen to get to lunch and sample to free wine on offer. The meal was preceded by a presentation of flowers to Louise to thank her for all the work she does for the Stags. The meal was followed by a presentation to the winners of the premier Stags event, the Order of Merit won again this year by the said Michel le Brun, after a nail biting finish to the season. Ron Maudlin finished second and Bernie Ray third.
As to the results of the mornings competition these were lost in an alcoholic haze but I think they were as follows
|PLAYER A||PLAYER B||PLAYER C||SCORE|
|John D||Woodward||Rod||Smith||John F||Woodward||81|
