• Yarrawonga – Vets Event – January 2018

  • John McCombe, the notorious bus bandit, putting for par.

    Mansfield Veteran golfers were well represented at the recent event held at Yarrawonga on 22nd January, with ten going on the bus and several others driving over.  A good day was had by all who went over and the course was in great condition, with the fairways superb and the weather not too hot.

    Some of our new lady members made the trip and won prizes, which was good to see. Sue Parsons was a winner in her section and her team won the ladies team event as well.

    Geoff Brown won something for 37 points in A grade and John McCombe took the money off everyone on the bus for the most points scored with his 39 points. This is becoming a constant source of retirement funding for this bandit, so the rest of us need to get serious and put a stop to this.  Made for some good chiacking on the way home though.  The price of beer for John has now doubled.

    Big welcome to all our new members and great to see so many lady members join the vets. Thanks to Paul Norris for driving the bus.

    Next event is at Bright on Monday 26th February and entries close on 15th.
