Janet triumphs in rare three way play-off

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Anne Free­stone

There was great ex­cite­ment at Fin­ley Golf Club last Wed­nes­day fol­low­ing the third round of the Ladies’ Cham­pi­onship.

Kel­lie White was the out­right open cham­pion and Margaret Lem­s­ing won C Grade.

How­ever, there were three ladies shar­ing the lead in B Grade with 299 gross.

Gay Hen­der­son had three rounds of 99, 97 and 103.

Julie O’Brien’s three rounds were 95, 107 and 97, and Janet Del­menico came in with 104, 95 and 100 forc­ing a play-off.

Con­di­tions stated play over three holes with sud­den death af­ter that.

Un­for­tu­nately Julie was elim­i­nated af­ter the third hole with Gay and Janet go­ing on to the fourth.

An er­rant shot to the green by Gay al­lowed Janet an ad­van­tage with her ap­proach land­ing just short of the pin.

Janet went on to sink the putt and take out the B grade cham­pi­onship.

It is un­der­stood that the play-off with three ladies was a very rare event and cre­ated a lot of in­ter­est.

Fol­low­ing a get-to­gether at Fin­ley’s Bir­ralee Preschool on Satur­day, a sup­port group has been formed for par­ents/grand­par­ents and car­ers of chil­dren with be­havioural dif­fi­cul­ties in the lo­cal and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

It was agreed that the group meet at the preschool on the fourth Satur­day of each month be­tween 2pm and 4pm, with the next gath­er­ing to be June 24.

All are wel­come to at­tend and share ex­pe­ri­ences and ideas with oth­ers in a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion.

This is aimed as a sup­port group for adults, how­ever chil­dren are wel­come to ac­com­pany par­ents and play in the safe con­fines of the preschool.

Par­ents/car­ers of chil­dren with be­havioural dif­fi­cul­ties can some­times feel iso­lated and this is a great op­por­tu­nity to com­mu­ni­cate and sup­port each other.

No doubt John Martin was de­lighted to re­ceive the news he was the win­ner of last Satur­day’s Fin­ley Lions Club wood raf­fle.

With the cur­rent cold weather, many are tak­ing ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to win an ex­tra load of wood.
