It has been a big week for club veteran Brian Dudley, but it could have been bigger.
He scored a net 69 to win the monthly medal on Saturday, then followed it up by winning the B grade event on Wednesday.
He also had the pick of the board in the Joker’s Wild on Friday night, but made the wrong selection and subsequently missed out on the $3900 prize. Dudley has been in a rare reign of form, and in the previous week was runner-up on Wednesday, and just missed winning Saturday’s fourball.
In Saturday’s monthly medal the A grade winner was ‘Digger’ Ring with net 70, from Peter Joice on net 71. B grade winner was Mark Thomas net 73, from Denise Hunter net 74, and C grade was Dudley’s net 69, from Rob Campbell net 74.
On Wednesday the A grade winner was Noel Nicholas with 38 points from Lachy Campbell on 36, and in B grade Dudley had 37 to win on countback from Bob Fitzmaurice.
Tomorrow’s event is single stableford and the first round of the Geo. Guy Trophy.
In the clubhouse the Joker’s Wild jackpot tonight has hit $4000. To be in the running all you need is a ticket in the meat raffles - these are on sale from 6pm, with draws starting at 7.30. Thanks must be extended to all the members and their guests who supported the Christmas In July dinner last Friday night, which was a great success and followed up the success of the Indian Night. These events are not only plenty of fun, but also important fundraising activities for the club.
Our next major function will be the Truck Show After Party on Saturday September 9, with entertainment by One OB (Geoff Wright) and meals available. Tables of eight can be booked at the club.
