Raffle & Norm`s Ramblings

I’m sorry to inform one and all that once again the weather caused the weekly raffle to be cancelled this week, the first time this has happened since I smashed my hand a few years ago, and nothing happened for three months. But then I have had a few holidays in Bali when consecutive weekends have been missed. So just forget what I have written in the previous sentences, and prepare yourselves for the latest weather report. So far this month the course has received over 65 millimetres of rain, more than 50 mm of that total in the last week and a half. If Robin Hicks doesn’t stop praying for rain soon we’re going to end up living in a swamp. Thursday and Friday gave us a combined total of 18 mm, wet the grass down so badly that the instructions were given that all carts must stay on the paths, and that players must walk from the path to wherever their ball lies. Outside my back fence on Friday afternoon I could see the pools accumulating right across the fairway, and consequently my decision was made to not play on Saturday morning. Plenty of other people made the same decision, as I observed the numbers splashing across to their balls trying to play that God-awful Ambrose competition: a second reason to cancel. The morning produced eighteen hearty souls, which made me have a silent hope that each and every one of them had the worst score of their careers, especially Wally Galpin.
