It would appear that things are in motion and we are now in second gear . Last week was the annual ladies match and twelve ladies were treated to our " chauvinism ". As expected , we men all behaved but I must say my lady partners were a bit near the bone!.Still ,  considering protocols etc. , every one had a good time and it was good to see familiar faces again . Just one prize this year for the winning team of Jane and Mike . I tried to even the handicaps , but that did'nt quite work , but we can do it all again in September . Monday saw the first week of our Summer Captains Cup and there was a very good turn out , even more for next week . Incidentally , I would like to welcome two new members to our fold namely Graham Caunt and Ernie Bagshaw who will be playing in Mondays comp. Quite strange to play off white tee's again and even more challenging to put the scores in!. I'm sure we will master the new system in time . This week had unusually two friendly games . First of the year at Longley Park , which normally includes a meal but not this year turned out very well with bacon sandwichs and tea half way round after 9 holes which went down very well and instead of a raffle there were cash prizes enjoyed by John and Bob , David and Les and Mike and myself . I would like to thank Simon Major , Keith Sutcliffe and David Potts for attending at the last minuete and special thanks to Ray Hawley and Mike Day  for attending and not letting the team down. Thanks lads . Moving on , our inaugural home friendly match with Elland GC proved to be a great success . The weather was great and so was the result , we won all six games . Bob & Eddie won 6&5 , Les & Mike won 4&2 , Peter & John won 8&6 , Roy & Keith won 3&1 and Alan & myself won 1 up . Well done to all and a special thank you to Alan Greenwood who only came to practise ( or so he said ) but yet stood in to make the full team, thanks Alan . We look forward to the return fixture at Elland on TUESDAY 18th May . There is no friendly game  next week , 1st up is the home game with Longley Park on Thursday 6th May , the team sheet is on the notice board . Have a good week end and see you on Monday , cheers Andrew
