SCARA Golf Competition May 2022
SCARA GOLF COMPETITION for the Lady Kerry St Johnston Rose Bowl - 19 May 2022
The much anticipated review provided by Roger Brown (circulated to SCARA members 01/06/2022)
So it was that Organiser Adrian Malupa called on the weather guru's and made it stop raining about an hour before we tee'd off, and for the rest of the day glorious sunshine.
30 people braved the stormy wet weather to get to Bentley Essex, a testimony to their resolve that they did not turn back and return to their day jobs (or garden pottering) but they were rewarded with a day of catching up with old work colleagues, a course in great nick, and weather to boot.Chairman David Cross turned up for Coffee and the meet and greet carrying in a small wooden box. Someone asked me what it was and I informed them that David kept hamsters and that he took them everywhere with him (*).
The Box turned out to be the new home for the LKSJ Rose Bowl, in fact a very sensible idea bearing in mind that this competition is for UK SCARA members, thus the Rose Bowl is already a well travelled piece of Silverware.
Steve picking up his Longest Drive prize, some Tee's and a AA roadmap of the UK.
The Nearest the Pin went to guest Darren Storm with undoubtedly one of the Nearest to the Pins in our history.
Darren at the scene - a strike that never left the pin and thanks to the earlier rain allowed him to get close.
The Overall Guest prize went to Geoff Marchant (in the foreground Red shirt) and Dave Lock (foreground right) picked up the second prize, NP winner Darren came third.
This Years Third place SCARA member was Big Ade. Here he is with David Cross laughing at the golf ball I was using today. Its not my fault I don't play anymore and I am reduced to playing with my Grandads old Gutta Percha's !
Second Place went to Simon Moore, His first appearance at our prestigious event.
And Last but not least, and may I say a very worthy winner (bearing in mind he drives down from the Kingdom of Yorkshire) and First time winner of the LKSJ Rose Bowl, Nigel Chew.
