Only 6 players turned out for the first qualifying round of the Club Championships. While colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson is recovering from an injury it would appear that many other members either failed to check their program or were attending the Burra Antique Fair. Fortunately for those that missed Saturday’s round qualification for the semi finals is determined by the best 2 of 4 qualifying rounds.
The standings after round 1 are:
The winner of the day’s handicap event was David “Jack” Webster with a net 72. Runner up was Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel with 76, followed closely by Dick Cleland 77, Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke 80, David “Robbie” Robinson 81, while the mercurial Bob Taylor received the Mars Bar with 83.
