Week Ending 12th November 2016

Hi reader,

Our best scores from Noosa were Graham Laing (39), Dave Lyons (36), Peter Piggott (35).

Con Russell continued his recent good form with 21 points on the first nine at Noosa but then faded badly loosing quite a few balls to the water.  Con suggested someone slipped him a foreign ball on the second 9 as it didn't understand his instructions; his playing partners heard them quite clearly as did the group 2 holes behind.

Congratulations to Rex Williams.  Rex takes out the 2016 Jim Penman Host Day Trophy as none of the top 4 were able to improve on their previous scores. And Rod Harper pushes out Ron Blount from the top ten by shooting a 33.

Much like the weather there were some pretty hot scores at Cooroy on Wednesday with Tony Bernhagen 42, Tony Kershaw 44 and Warren Hay 44 taking out A, B and C Grade respectively.

On Old Age

• The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for. 

• Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me! I want people to know why I look this way.  I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't  paved. 

• When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra. 

• One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. 

•  Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
