Raffle &Norm`s Ramblings

The sun shone for two successive days, golfers (not very many) started to appear again, and everything seems rosy after recent weather. There are still a few wet patches here and there, especially out the back of my place. With this fairway so constantly wet on the wrong side of centre to drain into the lake, it seems like a good idea to effect some drainage changes as were done on the first fairway a few years ago. What do you think? The golfing numbers are down considerably, with just about every resident-owned caravan missing around the estate, and there are a couple more who will be travelling off in the near future. Here’s a tip: if you know a neighbour or two who have gone off on holiday keep an eye on their house while they are away. If you see a stranger, take their car number, or even ring police if you even think they look suspicious. Give the matter priority, because there was a theft of cash from the club rooms a couple of weeks ago, and we must keep a lookout for mongrels such as these.

Raffle time came and went, and even though golf numbers were down it was great to see good numbers in the club house late in the afternoon, even though some had not been playing. First Cliffex meat tray was won by resident vegetarian Peter Johnstone. Second meat tray went to Dave Lovell. John Buckley won the Crown Lager six-pack for the second consecutive week. John sends forth the message to Peter that they swap prizes. Not a bad idea.

A word to Pokemon Go users: The committee has decided to ban the use of this phenomenon in the club rooms. Any male member aged six to sixty-nine years will be forced to shout the bar. Any male member over the age of seventy years will be expected to wash and dry the dishes at the next steak night. Lady members are expected to have more decorum, and to go home to play. Green fee players found playing will be thrown by Damon’s Doers into the lake at the first tee. It appears that the Bandit has travelled to the Gold Coast for ten weeks for the Greasy Armpits M.C. annual event. It is expected that the Greasies are planning a takeover of Pokemon Go, and to spread its use throughout our golf courses. We must stand up to this threat!
