Wednesday, 16th December – Ladies’ Christmas Fun Competition
Wednesday saw an incredible 32 intrepid ladies play in the Christmas Waltz. They proved once again that Olton Girls Can as they braved the rain, cold and mud to battle their way around 9 holes and thank goodness it was only nine holes, not 14 nor 18!
Unfortunately, we could not have our traditional Christmas lunch but instead at the Half way house we were greeted by our Snowman or Snowlady President Jeannie, and Santa Debbie who served us with succulent turkey rolls that had been expertly prepared by Will and Jana. It was the thought of those rolls that kept us going! We began the morning with Christmas music and viewed the decorations and left clutching a goodie bag! What a day to remember.
Now to the winners ……. That’s easy – the winners were all those ladies who took part and helped to make this such a memorable competition.
In second place was the team of Mary O’Neil, Sylvia Walker and Claire Beardmore with 33 points.
And in first place with an incredible score of 37 points were Susan Mckenna, Faith Walker and Ray Davies. Congratulations to you all and especially to Faith as this was her first ever Christmas competition!
