Golf on The Mud Results are in

Published by under Bilge

After what can only be described as Steve’s Crazy Golf. Three teams braved the highly modified course. (I think that if it was sailing we would  have used the C flag, S flag and Y flag – particularly Dean ha ha)

As all will know it was just a little windy (50mph) and there was a little occasional water, not to mention the bait diggers holes!

The Scores

 

Runners and riders:

The Commodores Team wins with The Commodore as top scoring round “Kel Surpreez”

The Ladies Title goes to Sophie Stanford

The Cadet Title goes to Sophie Stanford

Longest Drive Goes to Will (The Ringer) on Dean’s Team

The Joker was played by Dean who fell over in the occasional water after finding a particularly deep bait diggers hole and lost his Crock’s Ha Ha

Thanks to all the teams and players who braved the day.

I look forward to a rematch next year hopefully with a little less wind and lot more sunshine

Cadet Week 2019 Photos

Published by under Bilge

Hi all I have set up a drop box to collect pictures and video during the cadet week. So the media team of Barry Duce, Lyndon, Paul Morgan and Struan can post pictures and articles dally on the TV monitors around the club, the club website and on facebook for all participants to enjoy along with articles of interest during the week.

Also Southend council are going to post about the week on the towns website and social media sites

As you can imagine there will be lots of coverage with parents and helpers. So please only upload  your favourite 10 photos of each day.

If you have video clips they are welcome to but I would suggest short clips are best not zoomed in

Anyone who wishes to upload photos to the drop box account please send me an email requesting access and I will send you an invite to the drop box.

 

We will try to use as many pictures as we can for all to enjoy and then setup a cadet week 2019 folder with all the pictures on the club website

 

Kind Regards Steve Hopper Commodore
