CMI Consultants win 5th PSC Charity Classic
True winners - Girls’ Home for Street Kids
Coming down from Bangkok especially to play in the 5th Annual Pattaya Sports Club Charity Classic on January 19 at Phoenix Country
Club, the CMI Consultants team, consisting of Mark Beaton, Tom Payne, Phil Adkins and John DeWitt, scored 147 Stableford points to win the championship trophy.

Classic 2001: CMI Consultants’ Mark Beaton, Tom Payne, Phil Adkins and John DeWitt
However, it could be said that the true winners of the event will be the new Girls’ Home for Street Kids. The new home will be built close to the
elephant farm on Siam Country Club Road at the location of the Pattaya Orphanage Street Kids’ Center, which currently comprises of a Boys’ Home on 18 rai of land.
Construction of the new Girls’ Home for Street Kids is scheduled to begin early this year, and all proceeds from this year’s PSC Charity Classic will go towards getting
the home off to a good start.

There were also many other winners in the event, as a veritable king’s ransom of prizes were up for grabs both for technical winners and in the
now-famous PSC Charity Classic lucky draw. The prize list included gold, television sets, stereos, golf clubs and bags, hotel accommodations, green fees at some of the
area’s best golf courses, tailored clothing, refrigerators, microwave ovens, cameras, fax machines, cash, VCD players, mountain bikes, kegs of beer, bottles of spirits, and
even a bowling ball, plus, believe it or not, much more. Nearly everyone who participated in the charity event went home with something new.

The equally famous format of the event also makes the PSC Charity Classic one of the most fun golf outings of the year. The team Stableford format promotes
camaraderie out on the course, but what truly separates this event from others is the liberal use of Mulligans. At the beginning of the day, each player was allotted 24
Mulligans to use however he or she wished, as long as not more than two were used on any given hole. High handicappers prone to “spraying” the ball all over the golf
course (like this scribe) were given the chance to take errant shots over (and see even more areas of the course not normally viewed by the average golfer), while low
handicappers could have “one more go” at that birdie putt that lipped out. This, of course, has a tendency to produce high Stableford scores not normally seen in

Eberhard Stoll proved this point in emphatic fashion, carding an incredible 56 Stableford points (20 under par over 18 holes) to win the trophy for
individual men’s winner.
Rang Westgate also made great use of her Mulligans to trounce the course, scoring 49 Stableford points en route to winning the individual ladies’ title.
2nd place team “Park”: Jan
Andersen, Arve Thorjussen, Jan Thorsberg and Lars Evensen
In the team scoring, the top three scores of each team were added together to become the team score. Team winners, CMI Consultants’ Mark Beaton, Tom
Payne, Phil Adkins and John DeWitt, carded 147 points, meaning their top three players averaged 49 points each (13 under par over 18 holes).
The 2nd place team, who called themselves “Park”, made up of Jan Andersen, Arve Thorjussen, Jan Thorsberg and Lars Evensen, amassed an incredible 142
points, while the 3rd place “Fumblers”, Gerry Carpenter, Jerry Lien, Donald Ratcliffe and Terry Curtis, scored 141 pts.

No tournament of this magnitude can be put together without the very hard work and dedication of its team of organizers. PSC golf chairman Dennis Willet,
Bill Thompson and Ron Herbert, to name but a few, should be commended for a job well done. Many thanks also to Bjarne Neilson for his delicious BBQ after golf, Phoenix
Country Club for hosting the tournament, and all the hard working people, too numerous to mention, that helped this tournament run smoothly.

Also, and just as important, no tournament of this nature would be possible without the very generous support of numerous sponsors, both large and small.
The tournament lived up to its billing as one of the best golf days of the year, and most are already looking forward to next year’s tournament.

Fish & Trips fishing team lands Giant Ray
During the Pattaya Sports Club Monthly fishing tournament on Thursday January 18, the Fish & Trips fishing team, consisting of Paul Robertson, Ralf
Bernard and Frank Collins hooked, fought, and finally landed a huge Cow Tail Ray while fishing around the islands out of Ban Suray.
It was 7 p.m. and very dark when they hooked into the giant, and at first they thought that their line was hooked onto a reef. But while trying to pull the
line free, the thing took off and they knew that they had hooked some kind of huge fish.
Ralf Bernard, Paul Robertson and
Frank Collins had a night to remember whilst fishing in the PSC monthly tournament.
After taking turns struggling with the monster for more than three hours they finally had it up to the stern of the boat and could see what it was and how
big it was. Just to complicate matters, a large Cobia was chewing on the Ray as it came up behind the boat.
It wasn’t long before they realized they had a problem: how to get the thing on board the boat. It took five men struggling with ropes and rigging to
pull it on board.
But their dilemma wasn’t yet over, for then there was the problem of getting the Ray off the boat at the pier when they returned after daylight. Again
with the help of ropes, rigging, large boards, a high tide and many helpers, the feat was accomplished.
Then there was no way to weigh the thing, as no one had anything big enough to lift it. But by everyone’s best judgement all agreed that it was well over
three hundred pounds.
The Pattaya Sports Club organizes a fishing tournament each month open to all who enjoy the sport of deep-sea fishing. For more information contact Carl
Engel, PSC fishing chairman at phone 038-410228, fax 038-426121, or e-mail [email protected]

Anand Panyarachun launches inaugural Charity Golf Invitational for UNICEF
Former Prime Minister Anand Panyarachun officially launched the ‘Anand Charity Golf Invitational Tournament for UNICEF’ at a press conference held at the
Grand Hyatt Erawan, Bangkok, on Thursday 18th January.
His Excellency Anand, Ambassador for UNICEF in Thailand, welcomed the media present and spoke about the work by UNICEF in Thailand and the reason for the
golf tournament being held.

Panyarachun at a recent UNICEF function
Acknowledging the work of the Organising Committee, chaired by Dr. Panas Simasathien, Anand thanked the sponsors who had made the event possible, and
particularly Eastern Star Resort, and the two Platinum Sponsors - Cathay Pacific Airways and GE Capital, and Gold Sponsor Thai Farmers Bank.
Gamini Abeysekera, representative for UNICEF in Thailand, then outlined in more detail the work by UNICEF for children. The United Nations Children’s Fund,
active in Thailand for more than fifty years, provides education, research, protection, health care and support for the rights of children. Gamini welcomed the staging of the
charity golf tournament and, in thanking the sponsors for their support, expressed the hope that it would be an annual event contributing to the work of UNICEF in Thailand.
Also present on the panel was Yongyut Lujintanon, Cathay Pacific Sales and Marketing Manager for Thailand. Yongyut presented a short video explaining the
work by Cathay Pacific for UNICEF projects in Thailand and welcomed the opportunity for Cathay Pacific to participate in the event.
Dr. Panas, on behalf of the organising committee, also thanked the sponsors for their generous support and acknowledged the work of the organising and
working committees in the planning and staging of the event.
Finally, Michael Franklin, tournament director, outlined the program for the tournament on Saturday January 27th, and explained the ‘Four Ball Team
Scramble’ format which will be new to many of the Thai golfers taking part. Gratitude was also expressed to the many sponsors of the tournament, and to Tom Cole and the staff
at Eastern Star for their considerable help and co-operation. Franklin emphasized the excellent quality of the Robert Trent Jones Jnr. course at Eastern Star which, with the
other resort facilities available, makes it the ideal venue for the Anand Invitational. In closing, Franklin commented, “We are delighted at the response and support from the
sponsors, and the fact that the team places were quickly filled.”
Anand, after inviting questions from the media, closed the press conference and thanked those present for attending.
Paul Kraft takes no prisoners
Three Sisters Golf
The Three Sisters Golf group met as usual at Siam on Monday. The group has steadily grown over the last few weeks to where competition is getting stiffer.
It is hoped that the competition stays on course, as it was intended that all golfers playing remember that it was only intended as an informal golf gathering to have FUN!
As it was, fun we had, as Paul Kraft demolished the field with 45 Stableford points. Paul took no prisoners as he went around the golf course and shot a 38
on the back nine. Although he was seen on the wrong fairways at times, Paul managed to recover on his second shots to shoot 81 gross.
Dene Mundy gave a credible chase with 40 points. This would have normally won the day’s bragging rights but due to Paul’s incredible score, Dene had no
chance. The only thing that Dene did manage was to smooth out his putting jab which helped in his scoring. His golfing partners were surprised as the putter was not jerking
and stabbing at its normal rate.
Coming in a distant third was Bill Jones and Don Ratcliffe with 38 points each. They both made a valiant effort but the leaders were in too good a shape
for the day. John Moore, who won last week’s bragging rights, came in next with 37 points but could not repeat as the winner.
There were also a couple of competitions within the competition as the discussion raged around the table. It seems that Bob Moberg kicked Billy Fain’s
butt as they recounted scores and shots that were or were not made around the course. It seemed that Billy forgot some of the shots that he took or something along those
lines. Anyway, Bob’s voice could be heard admonishing Billy on his shots.
At the other end of the table, Vic Cross and Jimmy Little were having their own little discussion on how their games went. After checking the cards I
noticed that Jimmy must have won the argument since he beat Vic by one Stableford point (34 to 35). After a few beers and a bit more bragging, the golfers left for
Lill and Preddy lead the way at Rayong
IPGC Pattaya Golf Society from the Bunker
On Tuesday, 16th January, twenty-eight golfers from the Bunker trod the well worn path to the links-type course at Century Rayong. Division one golfers
played medal and division two played Stableford.
In division one, Ken “Exocet” Lill returned to form with a fine net par round to take the top prize. He was followed by IPGC Champion, Darren Robson,
who shot a tremendous net 73 off the back tees. In third place was birthday boy Harry Cowan who carded a net 76. Happy birthday Harry!
In division two, John Preddy gritted his gums to produce a “J. P. Special” and take top spot with 36 points, narrowly beating Paul Hartley, who scored
35 points. Third place went to the lovely Viv Lill, who showed that the Bunker girls are also in fine form by returning 34 Stableford points.
Nearest-the-pin awards went to Tom “Wee Willy” Waldron, Peter MacKay, Derek George and Bo Ahlgren.

Feedback this week from last time’s column has lead me to believe that quite a few of you want to take a closer look at some of the things that I brought
up. Weight loss general tips at this time of year are the most pertinent but in the interests of you achieving the fastest and best results in the safest and most effective
way please go over the stretching tips as well.
Always remember, before commencing an exercise programme, consult your physician and get started with the advice of a registered health & fitness
Weight Loss Tips
* Perform a half-hour of cardiovascular exercise daily. If you are just starting a fitness routine - just start walking!
* Train with weights 3 to 5 times per week to speed up your metabolism and improve your lean body mass as opposed to your fat mass.
* Eat often – six small meals per day is advisable, starting when you wake up. Try to space your meals three hours apart.
* Include fruit, vegetables and/or protein bars (with low carbohydrates) as a snack. A snack can count as a meal.
* Try not to eat the same things every day. Vary your meals so that your calorie intake fluctuates somewhat.
* Consume protein at every sitting and eat most of your carbohydrates early in the day, so that they burn off by evening.
* Try not to eat past 8 p.m. (sounds like gremlins).
* Drink 2 liters of water daily. If you can’t - do your best. Avoid juices, milk and regular beer. Light beers are OK and the only hard liquor should be
vodka & club soda – lowest calories.
Cheat on your diet one day per week. That’s right, you heard me. One day per week, the same day every week, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. - Cheat! Eat whatever
you want, as much as you want and have no guilt. This will help your weight loss by easing your mind and tricking your body’s metabolism and avoid plateauing. Look forward
to that cheat day, live for it, buy ONLY once per week - Monday through Saturday is by the book.
Stretching: after all training sessions have finished, 20 seconds per stretch is fine initially. Please remember not to bounce into any stretch and, as
with weight lifting, when stretching, as you put resistance onto your body, always exhale as the resistance comes on. Please perform the stretches in this
order, as this will allow you greater ease of access to the muscle fibers as well as the nerve endings of the large muscle groups.
1. Gluteus. Sitting down, 1 leg straight out in front of your body with the other leg crossed over and bent up clos e to your
chest. Wrap both arms around this bent leg to feel a stretch in your behind. Hold 1 leg for 20 seconds then change. As you progress you can lift the bent leg for greater
effectiveness by keeping your back straight and leaning back.
2. Calf (back of lower leg) & Hamstring (back of upper leg). 1 leg forward, held straight, back leg bent and supporting body weight.
Front foot’s toes up as high as possible and push hips back to feel stretch in the back (hamstring) of the front leg as well as the back, lower section of that leg. Keep
your back straight and your head up. Swap legs and repeat after 20 seconds.
3. Quadriceps (front of thigh) & Hip Flexor (front of hip). Standing up, take 1 long stride forward and stop. Bend both knees and keep
your hands to the sides for balance, tuck your hips under and push them forward. You should feel a stretch in the hip above your back leg as well as the front of the same
side thigh. Swap legs and repeat after 20 seconds.
4. Back and rear shoulder. Sit with your legs together and your knees bent so they are up almost under your chin. Wrap your arms under your thighs
and hold onto your elbows. Curving your spine back, slowly push back, keeping your chin up and exhale as you push back. Hold for 20 seconds then relax.
5. Chest and front shoulder. Standing up, take your hands behind your back and clasp them together, straighten your arms, push your shoulders back
and slowly lift your arms back until you feel a comfortable stretch in the front of your shoulders or even your chest. Exhale as you lift your hands back and keep your head
up. Hold for 20 seconds then relax.
6. Side shoulder. Hold your right arm straight out to the side, keeping it straight move it to cross over your chest, use the left hand to hold
above the right elbow and pull the right arm into your chest. Keep your right arm at shoulder height for 20 seconds then change.
7. Neck. Arms by your sides, back straight, either seated or standing, slowly lower your right ear towards your right shoulder until you feel a
comfortable stretch. Keep you head neutral and slowly change sides. No need to go forward or backwards. Only using the weight of your head, please don’t use your hands to
pull your head lower than it would naturally go.
Go for your life! You’ll be better for it.
Dome atop Mickey Mouse
Pleasure Dome won the week 9 battle of Mickey Mouse titans over Yorkie to remain undefeated and atop the league standings. Yorkie was, and still is,
Pleasure Dome’s closest rival in the league, but the loss put them two games back.
In other week 9 action, Rising Sun won the match but lost the beer to Mick’s Place, Palmer’s swept match and beer over Cheers, and Smugglers Rest
remained winless after losing the match against Devonshire. The Smugglers did win the beer leg, though.
Tim from Rising Sun has the league’s highest out to date, 140. Ian from Yorkie has put together two perfect 180s, whilst Shane from Rising Sun has done
This week (26/1) sees Pleasure Dome v Rising Sun, Mick’s Place v Smugglers Rest, Devonshire v Cheers, and Palmer’s v Yorkie.
Pinky feels Perky at Pattaya
IPGC Pattaya Golf Society with the Bunker
On Friday, 17th January, twenty-seven golfers from the Bunker travelled to Pattaya C.C. for a medal competition. As usual the field was divided into two
divisions and the course was well prepared with lightning fast greens! These proved the undoing of two regular Bunker Boys, John Preddy and Len Jones, who proceeded to card
their highest scores of the year!
In division two, Tony “Pinky” Callen shot an amazing net 65 to win his first tournament. He later recalled that it was the day when everything went
right, which is unusual for him. In second spot was John Hopkins with a net 70 and in third place, equalling net par were John Cahill and Brian Bradley.
In division one, Ray Ryan scored a net 71 to secure top spot, one shot ahead of the joint second place winners, Harry Cowling and the Exocet, Ken Lill.
Nearest-the-pin awards went to Viv Lill, John Harris, Ken Lill and Michael Dige.
From February 16 until March 4, Exotic Sky Adventures is ready to take off with
another skydive adventure. This time, skydivers who participate will be dazzled when stepping ground on the third largest island in the world: Borneo. The DZ will be near the
airport in Kota Kinabalu, the State of Sabah. The Malaysian Air Force will be flying the skydivers in their Hercules C130 aircraft and dropping them from 13,000 feet.
There is also a possibility for tandem jumping, and there are parachutes for rent there (only for experienced skydivers). Interested jumpers can contact
Patrick, tel. (038) 720 300 or mobile: 01/687 24 10, or e-mail: [email protected]
This is a civilian event.
Three Sisters holds on to lead
Pattaya Soports Club Friday Bowling League
With only a few weeks to go the surprising Three Sisters team is not letting anyone gain on them. With La (Bowling Chairperson) not bowling because a case
of food poisoning, and Jim, Ken Crow, Rick and Duck missing due to the PSC Charity Classic Golf Tournament, many teams were bowling undermanned.
Three Sisters, however, didn’t miss a step and took three points from second place TQ 1 Bob. Captain Suda, TQ 1 Bob, bowled a 234 game, 539 series and
Jah, Three Sisters answered with games of 205 and 207 and a 559 series.
Lewiinski’s took three points from Cafe Ole and moved up to a tie for second place.
Cafe Kronborg, behind great bowling by Captain Kran, 193-169-223, 585 series, and Lek chipping in with a 200 game, won 3 points from Snowman.
Captain Mio, House of the Golden Coin, with a fantastic 605 series, 176-192-237, turned in the best bowling of the day. Peter chipped in with a 207 game
and House of the Golden Coin won three points from VFW Post 9876.
