March 2021 Newsletter

President Report

President Report:

The members were welcomed to the Waterford Valley tournament by the president who were playing for the Thord Lorich Trophy.  The members thanked the Waterford Club as the course was in great condition and for their hospitality.

The starters, Peter Garbellini, Chris Proctor, Harold Hayes and Roger dispatched the field from a well organized Tee schedule arranged by Capt Jeff Stevens.

There were 57 members who hit the fairways, plus one guest for the day being Graham Reynolds who received one of our complimentary club golf balls.

Our thoughts go to those with health problems and to those having operations being Gary Morland with a knee replacement and Peter Ross with a hip replacement, hoping to see you back after rehab.

During 'Brag Time', we listened to the following members Mike Hoyle, Beverly Jenkin and John Molloy boast about their efforts during the month.

Please advise the President Roger, or the Webmaster Laurie, if you are not receiving your emails into your inbox or junk mail. We will investigate the problem.

Our thanks go to our sponsors, The House of Golf and Chris Thorne's Window Services.

Comparing notes - The Priest and the Rabbi

A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an airplane.

After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked,

Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?

The rabbi responded, yes, that is still one of our laws.

The priest then asked, have you ever eaten pork?

To which the rabbi replied, yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich.

The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.

A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?

The priest replied, yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.

The rabbi then asked him, Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?

joke202103b.jpg not found

The priest replied, yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith.

The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained, for about five minutes and finally, the rabbi commented, beats the hell out of a ham sandwich, doesn't it?
