The Mines - Green

It has to be “Loose Cannons” earliest start with a 07. 20am Tee time.
The first flight finishing at 10. 45!😜
The last flight in around 11. 30am.

Registration at 06. 50am was painless. All but one player (Roger) managed to pay their
registration fee by 07. 00am (as requested)

Thanks to Paul Geddes for getting a member to introduce us we only paid RM 210 to the club, which included a “limited” buffet lunch.🍛 Great value.

Course and weather was good.

For many of us this was the first time to play The Mines and what a great experience it was.Registration was smooth and uneventful and the same should have been said about our 2 Tee Box Start had not a number of our players ignored your Temporary Convenors clear written instructions and in their excitement to start stormed off to Tee Box 1 rather than Tee Box 10.Having finally decided they needed to storm back to Tee Box 10 they risked falling behind a pretty large contingent of LEGGS Lady Players.But Robinson was having none of this and led his foursome straight onto the Teebox and fired away before the Ladies could raise a word of complaint.This probably raises serious doubts whether the Annual Competition v LEGGS will take place this year !!!!
The course was in great condition.For a change we had truly professional well trained Caddies and we all finished right around the 4 hour mark.So for a change not a word of complaint from anybody !!!!!
This was also a day of surprises as far as the finishing spots were concerned.Usual prematch favourites Collett,Morris,Geddes and Castro athough playing pretty much to handicap were unable to match the form of 3 of our outsiders who upset the form book and came in as follows

The kitty was amply funded with Birthday Contributions from Martin,Stan and also from Peter to mark his record breaking day.
Amid obvious signs of discontent from the Membership over the Organizational Screw Up on Tee Boxes 1 and 10 it became clear over lunch that Temporary Convenor Wiggins position was no longer tenable.Our Cultural Attache Kaz Takita suggested that the only honourable way out was a Ritual Disemboweling and Beheading but this was voted down by the narrowest of Margins of 8 to 7 and TC Wiggins was allowed to resign with immediate effect but with the stipulation that he would never run for office again
With that Tony Morris was immediately voted in as new temporary Convenor and his first acts were to order lashings of more beer and rebook The MINES for next week
