Dave & Chris Robinson Trophy Day
Tuesday the 9th of April saw sixteen Vets - all men, no ladies! - turn out for the Robbo's Trophy, 4BBB and individual, with one group also competing in a first round match for the Radford Webb KO shield. Individual winner on the day with an excellent 38pts was the Captain, Bill Murray; 4BBB winners on 44pts were Mark Stone and Graham Hjorth, well done both of you. With 42pts balls went to Tony Burnet and Rick Paff, and Jim Dunn and Bill Murray. Nobody managed to win the 4/13 NTP (no ladies you see!!) and Phil Hawkins claimed the 6/15 NTP. In the RadfordWebb KO match, Ian Maggs and Keith Whitby were pipped at the post by David Hjorth and Phil Hawkins. David and Phil's next round opponents have yet to be decided. The Stayers award today went to Col Roser and Bob Kirkup. Next week will be Graham and Margaret Hjorth's Trophy day, an individual Stableford.
