– 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.
