What a fantastic roll up we had today at Melton Valley with 106 players facing the starter's gun. The breakfast offerings from Stylish Catering were very well received with the bacon, eggs, sausages and coffee proving most popular.
All that attended enjoyed the golf and the excellent meal provided by the club. The course was in good shape but scoring was difficult in the cool and gusty conditions. I probably should say difficult for some as John Barnes blitzed D Grade, and the rest of the field, with an excellent score of 41.
On a less happy note we said farewell today to one of our stalwart members in Bill Bilalis. Bill has been a member of the club for 21 years and has made a strong contribution to our success. Unfortunately though, due to some health issues, he is unable to continue his golf. Bill was given a rousing, and emotional, farewell by the players today and he knows that he is welcome in our midst at anytime. Good Luck Bill.
