Splendid performance!

Splendid, is the only way you can describe the “Souties vs Boere” challenge match.  Reading was awash with bright red and white outfits from the Souties.  But not to be outdone were the Boere in khaki, rugby shirts and camouflage outfits, right down to the socks! Fascinating was the fact that some of our “Boere meisies” looked so chic in their khaki.  Hats off to Karen Gehm, Lyn Viviers and Heather Reynolds for bringing a touch of glamour to khaki.

The format of playing 3-2-1 brought scores of 60’s vs 40’s and thereabouts to the tallies of the day’s play, but the end result was what counted.  Souties, you did good!  The trophy, donated by Corrie and Leon De Villiers, will become an annual “sought-after” one and next year’s challenge has already been diarised.

So worthy of note is the fact that playing amongst the bowlers were golfers who did not have to be coerced into playing, but just did it because they wanted to.  You guys rock!  And when you have Wayne and Candice Venter on your greens, you have music!  Thank you both, and thank you Candice for spending the time with us and happily playing our requests.  This was such a happy day.

Winner of the liquor hamper went to the best place ever – congratulations, Delville Reynolds.  You so deserve this.  Congratulations to Norman Sprong for winning the “best dressed” prize.

The Bolf final is on the cards, but judging by today’s weather report, it “ain’t gonna happen, folks”.  Let’s see what happens, but perhaps we need to go back to the original, very well thought out concept, of an additional (indoor) means of scoring points.  The tournament will continue and not become long and protracted, and your catering problems will disappear into the distance. Worth looking into.
