Wade wins medal

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

Dan Wade had a net 71 to take out the Brian McCleary and Co. monthly medal on Saturday.

In an unusual situation, Wade took out the medal without winning his grade, losing C grade on countback to Carol Hardman.

The A grade winner was consistent Jimmy Poka jnr with net 72 from Peter Seely 75, B grade Lyn O’Brien net 69 from Kerran Leetham 73, and D grade Rob Campbell net 72 from Annette Danckert 74.

On Sunday we had the mixed fourball best ball versus par, which was also a qualifying round for the Western Riverina mixed fourball. Winners were Tom and Chris Maw with +9, by a shot from Leigh Chappell and Vicki Hutton.

Last Thursday the ladies played their monthly medal, won by in-form Pauline Davis with net 70. She also won A grade from Vicki Brunker net 72, with B grade winner Pam Jarratt net 73 on countback to Anita Gorsuch.

In Wednesday’s stableford event the A grade winner was Chris Thomson with 37 points, from Noel Swainger 35, B grade Greg ‘Duck’ Collins with 37 on countback to  Gary Rodda, and C grade Gary Brant 38 from Hayden Schollbach 35.

This weekend we have the popular Borella Cup tomorrow, then men’s foursomes on Sunday.

Monday is mixed vets, with 9am assembly for a 9.30am shotgun start.

Also the support of members on Friday nights would be appreciated. Raffle draws start at 6pm with draws from 7.30. Excellent meals are also available at a reasonable price.

There was some interesting feedback from the board’s correct decision last week to not allow Victorian visitors as the Coronavirus got out of control. Is the rumour true that chairman Dan rang our boss Norm for some advice early this week?
