After the fun and games of the previous evening’s presentation event, a more gentle activity followed on Saturday morning at Mytton Fold.

Dave Griffith put a marker down for the New Year by coming home with a nett 53 after playing the shortened 16-hole winter course off his seasonal handicap of 12.

Mick Chatburn equalled Dave’s score but just lost out on a card playoff. Phil Hammond, Jim Bridge and Gary Aldred were next up, all having carded nett 56s and again had to be separated on their back-9 scores.

Hazel Sellars once again led the ladies home, followed by Lady Captain Elect Tarja Wilson who just shaded Brenda Griffith on a card playoff.

The first hole of the day was a lucky hunting ground for Dave Griffith, Dave Clegg and Richard Greaves when they all birdied the hole to share the Twos Pot.

In the Winter Pairs it was a tie for best on the day when the pairings of Wayne (Twinkle Toes) Ivinson/John Welch and Dave Griffith/Steve Worrall both carded 41 points. Mick Kelbie/Jean Van Boeckel finished just two points in arrears.
