ISIS MILL TRADERS’ DAY MEN & WOMEN AS expected each year on Isis Mill Traders’ Day, a large turnout on Saturday set off at 11.30am to play in a 3-Person Ambrose.

A great afternoon concluded with trays of sandwiches, a large intake of beverages, short speeches of congratulation by the President who showed appreciation for the turnout, while Peter Russo expressed his appreciation for the wonderful work by members of the Mill staff in organising the prizes and the day. After the presentation of the array of prizes donated by the Mill Traders, some stayed on to continue socialising to conclude a highly successful day. Next weekend is Easter and as usual, BBB competitions will be held on both Saturday and Monday, with hit-off time at 12.30pm. WOMEN JOAN Wright again (!) played well in the Thursday competition scoring a nett 73 in the single stroke competition, winning on a countback from Diane Rowley. Vicki McAulay won the approach 1.4metres from the pin. This Thursday we play our Monthly Goblet, a single stroke competition. On Saturday, the women played in the Ambrose teams for the Isis Mil Traders’ Day, so results are above. Next week being Easter, members as usual are invited to play the BBB competitions on Saturday and Monday, hit-off at 12.30pm. JUNIORS THIS week, junior golfers participated in an Age Event. This event involved children teeing off from differing locations according to their age. Congratulations to all players, most especially Max Corsetti who showed significant improvement. A special congratulations to Will and Sophie Martell who were selected for the 2015 Wide Bay schools golf team. Their dad, Brett Martell, would have made the team too, a part from the fact that he is a little old and a lot terrible. VETS VETS played a single stableford competition on Tuesday in very pleasant overcast conditions with many scores better than par for the round. Bob Champney had his best round for some time recording 42 points to be the overall winner for the day. In A Division Peter Hutton with 38 won on a countback from Nigel Radin, with Dave Robinson 2nd runner-up on 37. Michael Stanton won best nine with 19 points. Kev Denham won B Division with 39 from Rusty Usmar on 37 runner-up from Bob Cochrane on a countback. Joy Cartner won best nine holes with 19 points.

Dave Robinson also placed his second shot in the hole to win the combined approach. Bob Champney also led the Chook Run winners with 31 nett, Nigel Radin (31), Bob Werne (32) Bob Cochrane, Peter Hutton, Keith Rule and Chris Crouch (33). This Tuesday, April 7, is another single stableford - see you there for the noon hit-off. CHILDERS SOCIAL TWENTY-ONE players took to the course last Sunday morning for the last game of March. Diane Rowley hit a personal milestone breaking the 50 strokes for the first time and with her handicap, now 4.5 points lighter she took out the game with a 29. Bob Blows was second with 32 and losing 2.4 and Bill Kirchhoff won on a countback from Bill Long both on 33 to take out third place and lose 1.3 handicap points. 14 Putts seemed to be the order of the day with Diane, Scotty, Ted Buckland and Michael Stanton all hitting the same. Scotty White also managed to take out the B grade approach on the 10th with Terry Smallman taking out the A Grade Longest drive and Chris Fitzsimons the B Grade Longest drive. Bill Kirchhoff won the Nearest the Pin on the 13th but wasn’t close enough to knock off Bob Cochrane who managed a credible 1.17m taking out the first quarter Golden Circle. Bob Champney won the Men’s Approach on the 15th to round out the winners. We welcomed a new member to the Social Club today Nigel Ison and hope he has many good days golfing with our club.
