    Good evening everyone Thank you to everyone who played in this year's event; I hope everyone had a good journey, got home safe and your gear is now dry! Also a big thanks to Darren and the Golfshake team for once again sponsoring and supporting us. It's fair to say that the morning round was a challenge with the remains of Storm Miguel making it a very wet experience, especially with the very heavy downpour we got about halfway around. The senior staff at the club and even the club pro were very impressed (and amazed!) we continued around and said we deserved kudos for the resilience we showed. The afternoon weather was much better with just one heavy shower in the middle and the later groups catching another right at the end. The competition this year gave us a close result with just a two point margin at the top and a three way tie for second place. Congratulations to Gary Pinkney for taking the first place with 68 pts, including a very credible 36 pts in the challenging morning conditions. Well done also to Dave Roddis, Lee Nightingale and Mark Drew for sharing second place with 66 pts. The leading score in the morning was Mark Drew with a fantastic 39 pts given the conditions (25 of them on the back nine!) and in the afternoon Dave Roddis with 38 pts. The spot prizes we're as follows: - - Nearest the pin AM, 7th hole - Russ Rice - Nearest the pin in 2 AM, 14th hole - Justin Goodby - Nearest the pin PM, 6th hole - John Flood - Longest drive PM, 16th hole - Mark Pilkington The full final standings for all those who entered are below **Position, Name, Cherington (am), Avening (pm), Total** 1 Gary Pinkney , 36, 32, 68 =2 Dave Roddis , 28, ***38***, 66 =2 Lee Nightingale , 31, 35, 66 =2 Mark Drew, ***39***, 27, 66 5 Chris Perry , 30, 35, 65 6 Russ Rice, 32, 29, 61 7 James Wilson , 30, 29, 59 =8 Ian Hodgkins , 22, 36, 58 =8 Mark Pilkington , 26, 32, 58 =8 Tim Hawkins, 29, 29, 58 11 Dave Ley, 25, 32, 57 12 Justin Goodby, 30, 26, 56 13 David Homer, 26, 27, 53 =14 Daniel Alvarez, 19, 33, 52 =14 Shaun Bethel, 29, 23, 52 =16 John Flood, 21, 30, 51 =16 Robert Nutt, 25, 26, 51 18 Peter Nash, 22, 28, 50 19 Wayne Dunn, 21, 13, 34 20 Martin Flemings, 0, 28, 28 21 Robert Walker, 0, 0, 0 I hope you all enjoyed the day despite the conditions. This was the eighth year and the first time we've had rain so we've done pretty well so far. Once again, if there's sufficient interest the event will run next year and hopefully we'll get weather like we had in 2018. Thanks to everyone for all your support in making this event a success and hopefully see you back again in 2020 Chris
