The BLOB – 1st July 2016

Afternoon everyone, a bit chilly up here today, light showers between long fine spells.

Last Weekend was a great weekend for sports, loved watching the All Blacks, Warriors (so dam close) Lydia Ko’s win in the Walmart NZ Arkansas Championship – just awesome, but the game of the week was Iceland subjecting England to one of the greatest humiliations in history to beat them 2 -1  in the European 2016 football Championship – even though England played terrible,  Iceland capitalised on England’s poor performance and really deserved the win, can’t wait to watch their game in the quarter finals against France  on Monday,  who I’m sure will play them with the respect they so much deserve.

Saturday 2nd July we are hosting the Mashies, tee times are available after Lunch.

We all wish our Green-keeper John Lewis a safe and wonderful trip around Europe for the next 8 weeks, who is Dave Sully going to play cards with during his morning and lunch-time break now???
