In perfect weather on Tuesday Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel scorched the earth on the front 9 going out in even par & 24 points. Alas things went awry in the closing stage with Gus scoring just 2 points on the last 2 holes for a total of 39. Meanwhile the mercurial Bob Taylor playing more steadily also put together 39 points to win comfortably on a count back.

Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke & Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen” both scored scored 35. The Chook Man is returning from the summer break where he concentrated on bowls & clearly is short of a run also fading over the closing holes.  Andy Phillips scored 31 while colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson just manage to scape 30 points together. Dick Cleland’s woes continued collecting his 2nd Mars Bar in succession with 29. Dick’s game seemed to disintegrate after playing the Chook Man’s ball in error. The Chook Man was good enough to point this out AFTER the event.
