VETS: Newsletter week ended 9th July 2016

Smallacombe Grant - after too much GuinnessVETS ON THE ROAD

Grant returns next week from his grand tour and apparently quite a changed man from spending too much time in Ireland and drinking too much Guinness (picture left – click to enlarge).

Warren Hay continues his tour of Russia – here are a few shots of the amazing ‘Church on Spilled Blood’ in beautiful St Petersburg Russia. The church is so named because it was built on the spot that Emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded on March 1st 1881. The interior is done entirely in mosaics and is breathtakingly beautiful. One of the main attractions in this city.

2016 07 - Hay Warren St Petersberg


Welcome to new member Graeme Farrell who joined us on Wednesday.


It started out as a very cold (read freezing) and frosty morning but eventually warmed up just as we completed the round and enjoyed a BBQ lunch.  The course was in great condition with wide open fairways and large but challenging greens.

Rod Harper and Ed Krop took out the top 2 prizes for Cooroy.

Peter Piggott reportedly hit his best ever drive on the 8th Hole but unfortunately it lobbed onto the adjacent road and was last seen bouncing into the main street of Woodford.

Two of our lady Vets – Sue Piggott and Anne Kenzler – joined us for the visit and from all accounts enjoyed the day.
