Here is my story:
It was a truly great golfing day today. The course at Amverton was in great condition, from tees to greens. The weather was very kind to us, as the sun kept us away most of the time and it became only a bit warmer and humid when we were almost finished.
We teed off with four flights, two three balls, and two full flights. We missed Helmut because he got just outside the island with problems with his car and he had to wait almost two hours before his car could get towed away. Helmut, next time better, and maybe you should think about another car…..?
It was good that we were allowed to tee off at hole 1 and hole 2 because it was very busy at the course. One flight took indeed a long time because they were helped up by a jumbo flight on the second nine.
The scores were good today. Four players ended up with 37 points, but Bernhard won OCB (again….) on count back and took the RM 50 back home. Martin, Diederik, and Chia were the others with 37 points. With these results, Bernhard is the January winner with 75 points (the best 3rd score), followed by Diederik also with 75, and in third place Martin with 73.
The lunch was at the restaurant next to the bridge Kang Guan, with good food and drinks. We had a free lunch today thanks to the contribution from Diederik for his birthday and the generous contribution from Chia, because of the Chinese New Year. Many thanks, guys!!
During our lunch, we also celebrated the Loose Cannon Of The Year 2022. This is based on the monthly performances during the year, where points are given for places one to ten. You can all follow this in much more detail on the blog.
We gave prizes to the top 10, and for the others, we had a lucky draw. Number 10 was Roland, good for a sleeve of balls, numbers 9 and 8 (Mike and Bipan) were not present. Josef with number 7 won a pair of socks. Numbers 6 and 5 (Helmut and David Cheung) were not present. Chia with number 4 won a Loose Cannons 2023 cap. Iain, in the 3rd place, won a bottle of wine. Bernhard was number 2 good for 100 RM and the winner overall for last year, and therefore the Loose Cannon Of The Year 2022 was Ricardo!! He received the trophy with his name on it and a special shirt.
After that, we had a lucky draw between Dave, Hans, Jan, Martin, and Diederik, and the winner was Hans with Pampa’s bottle of wine voucher and the lucky boy was Hans Berger.
