After the official prizewinners drifted away, a thousand dollars worth of hams and wines and other prizes were distributed to worthy members who achieved some transient greatness on the day. Our Clayton's Club sponsored this great Xmas event, as it does every year. This Club meets on Wed mornings to play in our Wed comp (Single Stableford and 2BBB) between 9 and 9.40am. If ever you want a game on Wednesdays, we will find you a partner if you turn up at that time.

The shootout, winner takes all, was won by Trevor Thomas who deposited his ball about half a metre form our 18th pin from 75 metres out. A large crowd cheered as each shot was played.
