STUTTERHEIM

The Rep - - COUNTRY WATCH -

– On Jan­uary 20, the first cricket team played against Gonu­bie, who won the toss and elected to bat. They made 187 for 7.

Greg Wylde took three for 14. Stutterheim over­took the to­tal for the loss of four wick­ets.

Ro­han Lombard made 41 and Kyle Blom 35. Reece Daniel (27no) and Sean Richter (33no) stead­ied the ship when Greg Wylde un­for­tu­nately tore his achilles ten­don while at­tempt­ing a quick run. Stutt won by six wick­ets.

Sun­day, the open A di­vi­sion golf cham­pi­onships took place. The morn­ing Stable­ford was won by Dun­can Neill on 39 points and the run­ner-up was Tom Gigiya with 37.

The af­ter­noon bonus bo­gey was won by Juan du Plessis with +3 and the run­ner-up was Derek Jones on +2. Juan du Plessis also won the best gross on 143 and the best nett on 141. The run­ner-up for the best gross was Ben Jonas on 14 and for the best nett it was Vee-em Ngogo on 143. The A di­vi­sion cham­pion golfer is Juan du Plessis.

Satur­day, 88 ath­letes com­pleted parkrun event #170 in sunny con­di­tions. The route was not too muddy de­spite the rain dur­ing the week.

It was great to again have vis­i­tors from East Lon­don, Jo­han­nes­burg (the first “windgat” tourist to pay Stutt a visit in the lime cap – 111 dif­fer­ent parkrun venues com­pleted) and Lon­don.

There were also sev­eral first-timers.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Jess Coetzee on do­ing her 25th stint as a vol­un­teer – that now gives her a red, black and pur­ple mile­stone shirt.

Shiree Hei­dt­mann com­pleted her 150th parkrun, leav­ing her only 100 more to a green shirt.

A com­ment from a vis­i­tor says it all, “Such a friendly bunch of smil­ing peo­ple to cheer us around the route!”

Next week will see Len Nor­man do­ing his 100th parkrun.
