Meeting four at Woodside was the first evening swimming event for the season, and it was cold and rainy affair. For most of the event, seven brave Murray Bridge swimmers toughed it out.
Samuel Montgomery Pittaway produced his usual strong swims, Luke Ratzmer put in good performances despite his minimal training, and Haylee Ratzmer had a good meet once again displaying her effortless style.
Annabelle Starr managed to swim all personal best tomes and is getting stronger with each event.
Adella Chewings also showed strength and performed confidently in all her swims, and Isabella Roberts put in a great effort also claiming PB’s in her swims.
A special mention must made of the youngest Cod’s swimmer, Ella Ireland, who put in an enormous effort and is just getting faster and faster with each experience.
A withering six-up from early riser Stan Hill set the pace in last Saturdays Par competition.
After 77 other players had tried, unsurprisingly, it remained as the best score at the end of the day. Great golf by Stan in great conditions.
Steve ‘Beefy’ France was on song carving out a glorious four-up to win the A grade from a very much in form Andrew Meddle, who scored a very impressive three-up off his five handicap.
Jeff Wright moaned and groaned his way to a three-up to win the B grade from Long John Bell who has finally returned from injury. His two-up was a good effort first up from an enforced break.
Down in C grade, it was Jeff's cousin Dean Wright who roared back into life with a four-up to hold off John Barwick who broke a run of outs with a handy three-up.
It's hard work winning a voucher these days but Brian Smyth was up to the task scoring a two-up.
Quality A graders Trev Healy and Keith Durham each shot one-ups as did solid B graders Lloyd Norrish and Malcolm Blight. Neil Paech, Stuff Hall, Squashy, Hodgey and Graeme Munt were also in the winners circle for their solid square with the card rounds.
Other news of interest included the fact that not one player could get their ball to stay on the second green which does happen on the odd occasion.
The eagles nest hadn't gone off for a number of weeks but all the balls are now heading Mark Bolton's way after his three on the par five eighth.
The Pro comp for the best back nine was won by a dithering Dean Wright who was reluctant to pull his dollar from his pocket to enter the comp.
Eventually did so and is now reaping the rewards after shooting a four-up.
Maureen Johnson played a very consistent Par Round on Tuesday November 21 to win the day and the Amcal Pharmacy voucher. She was square on many holes and then after scoring on some and losing on others ended up with an overall score of square.
Kathy Pfeiffer also played a very good game to score minus one.
Liz Hodge continued her winning streak to come third with a score of minus two.
Five players followed, all with a score of minus three. They were Ellen Paech, Sue Antel, Ady Wright, Maureen Edwards and Dianne Wickes.
Saturday November 18 was also an Amcal Pharmacy Par Round won by Liz Hodge who ended the day with a score of square. Heather Fromm played well to be runner-up with a score of minus two followed closely by Ady Wright who was again in the winners list and Robyn Teasdale who both scored minus three.
Maureen Edwards also continued her good play to be the next Open Placegetter, scoring minus four, followed by Armani Marsters and Cathy Thomas both on minus six. The notable Progressive Scores in the Tuesday Women’s Golfer of the Year Award are Ellen Paech,11, Maureen Edwards, 10, Sue Antel and Kathy Pfeiffer.
