The big news on Saturday was the return of popular vice-captain, Mark “Mouldy” Millward after a 4 month break due to injury. Mouldy took up where he left off narrowly avoiding the Mars Bar on a countback.
The winner was David “Jack” Webster who put together a very even 39 stableford points. Runner up was Michael “Tickers” Tickner with 37. Tickers was level with Jack at the half way mark but was unable to maintain his form. Scores fell away after this with Chris “Critta” waters on 33, colourful local identity Philip “Thomo Thomson 32, Dick Cleland on 29 & Mouldy & the mercurial Bob Taylor locked on 28, with Bob taking the Mars Bar.
Kobi Wenzel won today’s 9 hole mulligan competition on a count back from David “Jack” Webster, with both scoring a very creditable 23 points. The mercurial Bob Taylor was third with 21 followed by Chase Webster & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel on 18. Dick Cleland scored 16 while Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke took the Mars Bar with 15 points.
Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke had his revenge on Dick Cleland beating Dick in a countback yesterday. Unfortunately the countback was required to determine last not first with Dick receiving the Mars Bar.
The winner was colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson with 39 stableford points. Runner up was David “Jack” Webster with 36 followed by son Chase Webster 34, Kobi Wenzel 33, Dick Secomb & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel both on 32, then the Chook Man & Dick Cleland on 30 (an unusually good score for the Mars Bar).
Using a unique scoring system based on the par competition and devised by the imaginative Gus The Good Guy, 9 players played golf “football” on Saturday. As can be seen by the scores below the footy scores bear little relationship to the golf score, although Robbie had the best round by both scoring systems. The Crows won handsomely because they had 7 players to the Tigers 2. This is something the Adelaide Football Club should consider next year.
Sadly the Crows performance at the MCG mirrored that of their keenest Burra supporter, Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke. The Chook Man jumped out of the blocks and was 5 up with 6 goals 2 after 9 holes. On the back 9 he was 5 down & added just 4 points to his footy score.
