Twelve mixed pairs drawn into six fourballs competed in this year's Mixed Mayhem competition. The format was an unusal one in that each pair drew a scorecard of another course from the Pro Shop and then played our Stoke Rochford course against that 'foreign' card taking the par and stroke index from that course. Once the initial shock was overcome, all enjoyed their round. However, half way round the heavens opened and all became very wet. Fortunately, a hot fish pie meal had been arranged and the usual banter accompanied the after dinner presentation which included prizes for a pre -dinner quiz.
As Dorne & Don Werner were unable to play on the day, the quiz and prize giving were ably managed by Norma Varley who delighted the players with her own style and delivery of the after dinner speech - many thanks Norma!! Thanks also to Steve Cullington who checked the accuracy of all final scores on the cards returned.
The prizes were won by:-
1st Mags & Jim Mcarthur 40 points - 21 on back 9
2nd Jackie Witten & Graham Manton 40 points - 20 on back 9
3rd Joan Lennard & Jeff Purdy 40 points - 19 on back 9
Nearest the pin for men (17th) Brian White
Nearest the pin for ladies (12th). As there wasn't a lady on the gree the prize was awarded to Janet Jessop for gainin the most points on the hole in question.
The quiz team prize was won after the tie-break question by Mags & Jim McArthur, Jackie Witten & Graham Manton
Let's hope that next year brings the same mixed team sucesses and enjoyment.
