It was fine to start with on Monday May 21, but soon strong winds and intermittent showers made unpleasant conditions for the individual stableford and ‘weasels’ competitions. (A weasel is holing the ball from outside the green.) Ken Purcell appeared to be oblivious to the awful weather and played eight under his handicap. Stableford results: Ken Purcell 44 points; Graham Jenkins, Norm Sanderson 39; Rob Morrison 38; Peter Maria 36; Bill Newland, Rakau Keno, Tim Parish 35; Bob Hoggard, John Purkis 34; Allen Sarjant, Ray Berghan, Paul Chadwick, Errol Millar, Bill Tiffin 33; Peter Brown, Gerry Tompkins, Bob Pipe 31; Geoff Lee. Ladies: Dot Ramsey, Rae Brown 33; Heather Walker 30. Weasels: Jenny O’Dwyer, Maurice Tait, Rakau Keno. Twos: Ken Purcell, Peter Maria. Members were saddened to learn of the recent death of Ian Massey, one-time Captain of the Veterans’ section.
