Raffle Norm`s Ramblings


Saturday saw the first outing of a new style of golf game at Safety Beach Golf Club: Inflationary Golf. Three members, Ken Greer, Bill Fowler and Ian Cragg devised this new style of game because when it came to club championships over a three-week period, they were usually at the tail of the field after the first round, and therefore had nothing to play for over the next two weeks. Hence, Inflationary Golf proves an apt replacement, and they proved it yesterday. Between them they managed to accumulate something in the order of 347 shots! There was some suggestion that a recount should be made, but there was simply no time because the club hierarchy wanted to get home by midnight. So there you go. A new style of golf invented right here at Safety Beach. I think some motivation concerning difficulty in playing this style of golf on a nine-hole course also came into it, as well as the necessity to have the mature age that would ensure the capability of being successful. That aside, what a rotten day we had trying to counter gale-force winds. Putting was extremely difficult on some holes. In fact, when I rolled up for my late afternoon chores, there were a few young boys trying to putt into holes on the practice green, and having enormous trouble with the wind which forced the balls in all sorts of directions.

Raffle time saw Kiwi Neil Fredricson finally win a meat tray. At last he’ll be off my back! I think he won only because I was too late to catch Mike Henry. Second meat tray was won by Denise Law. Worthwhile coming home from holiday, I’d say. The Crown Lager six-pack was won by Ian Whatley, a first time win for Ian, which always is pleasing to announce.
