AS I struggle to find something to write about on Monday morning I again think how ironic it is that so many weekends are wet and miserable and Monday dawns bright and clear.
Again the weather put paid to most golfing aspirations on both days though I understand three hardy souls ventured out on Sunday. The scheduled foursome event would have been postponed to a later date.
On Saturday 25 golfers from Canberra played nine holes in quite heavy rain - even the greens were under water - but they seemed to enjoy the day. My memory is good enough to remember that years ago I would not have thought twice about playing in those conditions. It is fortunate that age sometimes brings common sense.
Phyllis Diller knew a thing or two about the golfing scene. She once remarked that the reason the golf pro tells you to keep your head down is so that you can’t see him laughing.
Nine holes events are programmed for next Saturday for trophies donated by Bill Arabin and Godfrey Regan. A three person ambrose is planned for Sunday - with a draw for partners - for trophies to be donated by Michael and Simone Seres. It is a shame we do not know what the weather has planned.
The men’s winning pennant teams travelled to Wagga at the weekend to compete in the zone play offs. The teams, skipped by Peter Glover and Jason Howard, had narrow wins but Tommy Glover’s team unfortunately suffered a resounding defeat. So no Sydney trip to plan this year.
The lady bowlers held their annual meeting on Saturday afternoon and it was great to see Robyn and Wendy becoming interested again. Due to lack of numbers the same office bearers were elected for another year, myself as president with Pat Allen secretary and Wendy Hawley treasurer. If we can find another one or two maybe we will be able to combine again with Boorowa Rec Club to play pennants again next year. Twice a week becomes a bit hectic when the same four have to go every time.
Another cheerio to Margaret Robinson who has been transferred from the Canberra Hospital back to Yass following the surgery on her broken hip.
Helen and Peter Curtis report a wonderful month’s holiday in Canada. I expect it was a bit of a chore to go back to work again.
Holidays are looming on the horizon for the school kids so everyone will be hoping for some fine weather. The staff suggests that parents would find lots of activities suitable for kids if they look up the Go Play website -www.goplay.nsw.gov.au
The students will be experiencing evacuation drills this week and next as required by their workplace health and safety policy. They will also be participating in jump rope for heart activities.
The new school crest is in the final stages of design and will soon appear on school documents and will be incorporated into the school uniform. The students recite the new code of behaviour each morning: “Be honest. Show kindness. Respect people and property.”
School reports will be handed out on Friday. Miss Cooper has said she is very impressed with the improvement shown by the infant’s classes.
One pre schooler (not a local) defined love as “Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.”
Quite a few items of clothing are in the lost pile at the school.
Until next week
