Week Ending 30th September 2017


Hi reader,

Despite a "carefully selected” Australian Attack team (371 points) and a great team effort by the True Blue Aussie team (380 points) the International All Stars (408 points), astutely led by Jimmy Henderson, proved too strong again this year to take out the Pewter Mug.  

Grant Smallacombe, skipper of the Australian Attack team, offered the excuse that he needed to wait until the available inscription area moves further down the mug so his name will fit.  Relieving skipper of the True Blue Aussie team, Rod Booth, argued that he had achieved the objective set by Dave Lyons - don't let Australian Attack win!     

Notwithstanding the emphatic win by the Internationals, there are already rumblings afoot with some team members lobbying to be recognised as fully fledged Aussies next year!

Optional tee up all round was the order of the day on Wednesday.  Perhaps this had something to do with the exceptional scores in C Grade.  Terry Harrison 47 won on a countback from Tony Kershaw with Bob Read in 3rd Place with 46.

John Hillis took out A Grade with 40 and Bob Brookfield B Grade with 42 points.

Next week is a Monthly Medal and time start from 6:30 am.  There will be a compulsory stop at Marty's Hut for a free drink and hamburger with the ingredients supplied by our NTP sponsors:

Cooroy Harvest Fresh - Cooroy
Richies Bakery/Fox and Hound Espresso - Cooroy
Noosa Outlook Prestige Meats - Tewantin

BBQ and entertainment by Jimmy Henderson.

Rod Booth - Secretary/Treasurer
Cooroy Veterans' Golf Club

A veteran golfer was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. 

As he was about to be anaesthetised, he asked to speak to his son. 

Yes, Dad , what is it?

Don't be nervous, son; do your best, and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me, your mother is going to come and live with you and your  wife....
