YAH!!! Our Mashie team won on Saturday against Boulcott at home 9.5 – 5.5, I hear the Captain didn’t play too good, but thankfully it’s a team event. They had great feedback on the great condition of the course, so would like to thank the greenkeepers on their wonderful work, they would like to thank office staff, plus the caterers. Greg would like to thank the team for their help over the season. This win leaves them leading the Competition by 2 points going into the last round at Ohariu on the 10th August. They then have their field day at Kapiti on the 24th August where the competition is different from previous years, teams will play off for their final positions ie 1st v 2nd, 3rd v 4th & 5th v 6th. This should add a bit of spice to the last outing of the year!! Team members please let you Captain know if you are available to play the above dated games as soon as possible. Thanks again to Greg Judd for all the wonderful work you have done this year as Mashie Captain. Just make sure they win at Ohariu – by 15 would be good!!!!
