Week Ending 26th November 2016


Hi reader,

Jim Turnbull would have felt confident walking off the course on Wednesday with a very good 44 points only to be pipped for top spot in B Grade by Alex Kologaras with an even better 45 points.  

Tom Williams also had a good day with an Eagle and NTP on the 13th, NTP on 15th and 3rd place in A Grade.

With only one Stableford competition remaining Greg Michael has a handy lead in the 2016 Stableford Player of Year trophy with 392 points.  His nearest rivals are Errol Radley (386) and Bill Galvin (382).

Welcome back to Terry Harrison, rejoining Cooroy Vets after a period away.

There will be a list available over the next couple of weeks for members to indicate if they will be attending our Xmas lunch on 14th December 2016.  This will help with numbers for catering purposes.  You must be an invited guest or male financial member of Cooroy Vets to attend the lunch.

Next week is an 8:00am shot gun start, December Monthly Medal and 2016 Medal of Medals trophy event.

A reminder of the procedure for our 'Free Lucky Draw' on time start days.  The draw is made as soon as all players have registered.  The winners are noted on the whiteboard and on the 'Today's Free Lucky Draw' sheet placed on the table in front of the whiteboard.  The winners need to collect their prize on the day otherwise it is forfeited so make sure you check the whiteboard after your game and sign off collection on the 'Today's Free Lucky Draw' sheet.



As we Silver Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.

I had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over.

Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.  As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong ?
He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.' 
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless enquired, 
'An, ID ten T error ? What's that?  In case I need to fix it again.
Eric grinned ..'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before ? 

'No,' I replied. 

'Write it down' he said, 'I think you'll figure it out.' ?  So I wrote down:
