County Waltz 2017
Temperatures plummeted for the first fixture of the season as 31 teams of ladies took part in the annual County Waltz, on 26th April at Stanton. Everyone was well wrapped up in winter hats and windproof jackets as they battled the wind and occasional hail during the day. But the cold weather did not dampen the spirits of the players and there were lots of smiling faces and rosy cheeks in the clubhouse at the end of the round.
The winning score of 72 points was shared by three teams, so the prizes were calculated on countback. The overall winners of the day were Jean Durbin and Jo Hopkins from Notts Ladies and Fran Tunnicliffe from Stanton. In second place, County Captain Helen Maber with Carol Bancroft, both from Beeston Fields, and Cathy Burnside (Stanton) and in third place a Stanton team of Jan Hooley, Pam Musson and Jane Harby. Well done to all the winners and to all who took part and battled the elements and thanks to everyone for their generous support of the raffle.
Our thanks go to Stanton on the Wolds Golf Club for letting us have the course for this early season fund-raiser and for looking after us so well on the day and to Lady Captain Irene Herod and her helpers for manning the half-way house to provide a very welcome hot drink during the round. Thanks too to all the County officials and to past-President Joan Underwood for their wonderful help both behind the scenes and on the desk. The day was a huge success and a great start to the 2017 season.
