The committee would like to thank all the members that made their way up to Yarrawqonga-Mulwalla and made the trip a massive success once again. We also thank all the boys that were involved in organising the trip, the prizes and the bus. Also a big thank you to the boys from Statewide Ventilation for covering the fuel bill for the bus up and back (claim it on tax boys). We had unbelievable shorts and t-shirt weather over the two days of golfing and that made for some great scores. Taking out the individual stableford event was none other than the Vice President himself Marinko ‘Harlem Shake’ Pausak on 41 points. The next day’s play was a two man ambrose event and that was taken out by Dave ‘Danny Green’ Gurrie and Colin Thompson with a fantastic 59 net beating the Miocic brothers Chong and Davo on count-back. Best on Ground award goes to room 67, they must have had a massive Saturday night as their outside table contained an unbelievable amount of empty beer bottles, pizza boxes and overflowing ashtrays, ‘BIG NIGHT BOYS’
Special mention goes to Chris Timonowicz for a great HOLE IN ONE on the first day and obviously winning the money hole. Good on ya Chris!!!
Once again thanks to all involved and we hope to make these sort of trips an annual thing once again and keep growing our membership in the process. Until Werribee Happy Swinging!!
PS Monksy, you still owe Kumpy half the money hole cash. It was a team game after all.
Another cold morning greeted us again at the Sands Golf resort for round 7. There were a number of disqualifications this round due to teeing off from the wrong markers. Home course knowledge may have played a hand as Frank Kevric took out the round with net 34 points on count back. Second place landed with Mark Vrljic also on 34 points – like a good race horse back him in after a spell. Third place went to Zdena on 33 points who pipped Age “el presidente” Began on countback. Big crash this round for Luka Kovacevic after winning at RACV torquay in the last round, the Sands cut him off at the knees as he put in a shocker to take out NAGA award.
Next Tournament is at Werribee Golf Club on the 3rd of July tee off – 7:30am -Stableford event.
Safe travels to those going on the Golf trip.
