Chaten ‘the Rajah’ Patel is recognized as a player who can shoot as well as he wants and that potential was realized again on Sunday with a monthly medal winning net 68 off a 13 handicap.  Chaten received a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whiskey, a lead crystal engraved whiskey glass, an invitation to play in the year end gold comp, and of course his name will be etched on the Lewiinski’s wall of shame for May 2013.

Chaten was one stroke better than his A Flight playing mate Aussie Paul Hack, and the B Flight pair of Mickey ‘nine holes’ Beresford and John ‘the bar steward’ Deardon; the count back result falling in Mickey’s favour.  The B Flight bronze went to a three-way count back between the Aussie pair Jimmy ‘AK-47’ Bell and fellow compatriot Lou Zigzag, with Freddy Star Trek making up the trio as Jimmy got the nod.

Aberdeen’s man on fire Mark Wood filled the remaining senior flight bronze spot.

Terry Mangan, Claude Harder, Mick Mathee and Colin Davis shared the 2’s pot.

B Flight

2nd Lou Szigligeti (18) 32pts

3rd Jim Elphick (26) 29pts

Man of the match Aussie Paul Hack was showing signs of coming into form this day with an excellent 37 points.  Paul was the only man to better his handicap and his fine effort was three strokes clear of Peter ‘fluent in Thai ‘Hynard and a further stroke clear of one of our dearest friends from the old sod (and we have many) Terry ‘pork chop’ Mangan and Monsieur Thierry Petrement, the luck of the Irish prevailed in the following count back.

Irishman Christy ‘good’ Knight topped out B Flight as he had the count back better of “the pied piper of Oz” Lou Zig Zag.  Jim Elphick was the only one left with lucre in his pocket as he had the count back better over Jim ‘just call me lonesome’ Reid, Thierry Danzas and the Co. Kilkenny man Tom Gorey.

Paul Hack and Thierry Petrement split the 2’s pot.

2nd Lew Szigligeti (18) 36pts

3rd Colm O’Donovan (19) 32pts

A perennial favourite Bangpra was the site of Wednesdays outing.  B Flight’s Charles Cunningham was man of the match as he made his 38 points stand up for victory.  Lou ‘the pied piper of Oz’ Zig Zag took the silver with a solid even to par round as Colm O’Donovan closed the flight with 32 points.

In A Flight the action was equally fierce as Mr. Nice Guy monsieur Thierry Petrement stood atop the podium with a solid 37 pts.  Moving on to the balance of A Flight we found the title guy Chaten ‘the Rajah’ Patel gripping the silver.  A trio of players were in a tangle for the remaining flight spot and the happiest was Tore Eliassen, while the Irish pair of Pat Regan and Terry Power were neither happy nor sad, they simply had another drop of the black stuff.

Chaten Patel, Terry Power and JP Maffray shared the 2’s pot.
