Our Open Week goes from strength to strength with a fantastic turnout for the 5 days in all the competitions.
The Friday night Scramble followed by barbecue and presentation has turned into one of the social highlights of the club year since its introduction. Well done to the Open Week committee and also to the individuals who gave of their time during the week. A special thanks to the local business community who provide us with very generous sponsorship year on year, please take note of their signage around the club in the coming weeks.
We are also thankful for our many friends in other neighboring clubs who turn up to play every year in our Open Week, and a number of them feature in the results below.
