Ladies' Captain's Day started with some good weather, warm with some sunshine and little wind, so everyone was anticipating a good day of competition and festivities. It was very unfortunate then that play had to be held up by a thunderstorm when absolutely everyone was out on the course! However, all competitiors made there way either to the spike bar or to the halfway house safely to wait out the storm, which I was assured was only a 'Narrow band of cloud which will pass quickly' by the sattelite weather watchers in the shop. We also invented a new game during this break - how many damp golfers can you squeeze in to the halfway house at one time....... it was literally wall to wall with alternate breathing! Still, some made the most of the extra chance to grab some food and spirits remained high.
Play resumed as quickly as possible and, apart from another shower, continued uninterrupted - thank goodness.
My thanks to all for their perseverance and to all the afternoon teams who must almost have literally run round as they made up a good chunk of the delay created by the mornings interuptions.
Congratulations to all those who won prizes and my thanks to everyone for your gifts, cards and good wishes. I do hope that you enjoyed the day as much as I did.
