Hello All ,

Well this Friday May 1st … usual tee off times being as they usually are see’s the kick off of this years Tournament .

The usual rules apply for the Thursday night ( see last years post where and when ) and I’ll see you all there .

I am sorry I have not updated things for the last year but beyond my control and I am now looking to get someone to take this over . It is paid up for until next February and if your interested please see me at the golf . It also gives you enough time to transfer the hosting and domain hosting to another company if you want .

It’s a lot easier than it looks and you get your own support and IT dept with it .. ME !

See you all Friday

Hello All ,

Well sorry for the lateness of this but I am sure someone said they would write a pice about this years cup and they seemed to have forgot ?

So I will try to recollect what happened that day although myself and Mr Harrison only lasted 9 holes ( in the buggy – less than that if you talk golf) and the rest I will make up as I go along .

The usual faces where there on Thursday night in the Robert The Bruce pub ( the usual ones disappeared from Dumfries in the morning as well ) and a lot of catching up was done . Russ did not do his sponsored Pigathon as that was a bit of perfidery , this is what the free online dictionary says about that word and you can guess who it was that did it — Deliberate breach of faith; calculated violation of trust; treachery: “the fink, whose perfidy was equaled only by his gall”.

it was a bit of a suprise to see certain other jocks there but the less said about that the better .

All retreated to Jans place later on where for once in countless years we got kicked out early because the lady lost her keys and had to borrow Tams . So she left sober while she could still keep hold of the keys .

The next day there were more drop outs than usual due to old age , sore bones , the usual drink related diseases and whatever else . We continued unabated and the die hards played there golf and the undead hearts socialised as usual . After 9 holes some of us sought the sanctuary of  the 19th hole and after more beer waiting for the finishers we had our meal and presentations .

As usual the food was good the speeches short and the usual chaos of the wraffle was had . I don’t know how much was collected ( I’m not a journalist taking shorthand notes you know) but it was a healthy amount and thanks for all those who chipped in even if they were not there


The day wound down in Jans pub if you got there ( i didn’t so can’t tell any lies about that part ) and hopefully everyone got home safely next day . No accident or police reports seen yet or do you know different ?

Lastly a big thatnks to all the usual people who set it all up including Len, June,Paul Jan and Kay , Jims family . Also Juicee and all the others for doing the handicap and sorting out the club . thanks to the club for having us again this year and thanks to Jim for keeping the weather good as rain was predicted again this year and again it stayed away . Must be him !

Anyone who would like to add please send me via the contact page your email and I will tell you how to do it and any photos will be appreciated .

Oh and one thing I nearly forgot . The tournament has been running for 17 years and this year Neil Patterson won the cup . He’s worth a special mention because of course he won . But also because he has attended every cup since it started and this is the first time he has won . If it was a driving test he’s have given up a long time ago but he didn’t and he was tremendously happy to win it for the first time . Well done from all of us .

It shows we all have a chance to win it if you follow the golden rules

Practise hard

lie about how much you play golf

stay out of Jans place on Thursday night

last more than 9 holes .

Easy !

If anyone wants to sponsor me , I am doing a sponsored eat at the Indian across the road from Robert the Bruce on the Thursday evening in aid of the Kent Flood appeal. Unbeknown to many the heavy rains forced the closure of Waitrose for two days,leaving many local residents without access to necessities such as Tenuta Di Fassia, Mini Amaretti biscuits, and Quails eggs. There was a complete run on Mineral water, forcing unfortunate residents in Tonbridge Wells to opt for tap water. (Yes, TAP WATER!)
I reckon as it is for charity I shouldn’t have to pay for my groceries, so if anyone fancies footing the bill I would appreciate it.
Anyway, I hope you can all dig deep as i reckon after a six hour drive and only three stops for Gingsters I will be Hank Marvin.

To those that have asked Mr Mellon has said that he is sure it is 10.00 am and if you are there @ 09.30-0945 it shouldn’t be a problem .
Just talked to that bugger who won’t be there because he has to go back to the ship ( sorry about that ) and he says he is off to Parkhead to watch celtic with his mates Jamesee and Rab . Couldn’t be —- could it ?
