Friday night saw about 30 people attend the putting competition, golf quiz and pizza night at the Club. Many thanks to Phil Armstrong and his helpers for organising such a fabulous night. Sharon Grogan won the YEA MEATS meat raffle.

Wednesday golf for 15 men saw a stableford event conducted. Many of us are now happy that school holidays are over as young Tom White(20) thrashed us all with 44 stableford points. He had 82 off the stick including three birdies! His playing partners described it as one of the best rounds of golf they had seen. Tom is currently also playing Pennant for the club being undefeated in his matches up to this Sunday. Unfortunately his run ended this Sunday at Marysville versus Eildon losing his match 3/2. The others however won with Rick Wills winning 3/2, John Phillips 4/2, Tony Rule 5/4 and Greg Clements 3/2 to record a 4/1 for Yea.
