Stags Spring Away Day

Wednesday May 15th saw the first Away Day of 2024 and the first for the new Competition Secretary.

I had been told the one thing that you can guarantee when the Stags gather for an Away Day is it will rain. As I set out to Fulford Heath, the weather forecast indeed suggested that we might see some of that usual away day rain. I needn't have been concerned, no sight of rain and sunny intervals were enjoyed throughout our rounds.
Only when I got home and my wife asked if we had got wet did I find out there had been rain around, well at least in Ashby!
So that left no excuses for the golf, excellent conditions and an excellent course in fine condition. Though it lulled you into a false sense of security with a series of short holes before finding tougher longer and tighter holes from 7 onwards. So scoring well was tough, anyone scoring in the 30's was doing very well.
After our round we met in the Fulford Heath Club House and enjoyed the usual golfing tales of skill, luck and woe. We were served a very good Hunters CHicken and our three "special needs" Stags had a dairy free Cottage Pie.
After the meal we had presentation of the prizes, 
Longest Drive, on the 14th Hole. Initially a "Beat that" gauntlet was thrown down by Paul Steward in the first group, which was!! With several Stags taking their place on the leaderboard the prize went eventually to Robin Whitehouse playing in the last group.
Nearest the Pin, on the 16th Hole. Again "Beat that Steward" laid down the gauntlet, but this time he was not to be beaten so nearest the pin went to Paul Steward.
Well done Robin and Paul
The Bill Collier Cup was won by the only score over 36 points, so well done to Steve Cranage who reatinas the Cup that he won at Bromsgrove last year.
