With the Doc away for Songkran it was left to Trevor Schirmer, who whilst still being unable to play through injury, took on the onus of the sign-ups and presentations in addition to his on course organisation, and had a farewell today for Phil Stevenson and John Wood before presenting the day’s prizes.

The rest of the week and the following week’s golf was cancelled due to the Songkran activities in the city which made transport almost impossible to organise.
