Sports reports March 23
Super Spuds training continues tomorrow night (Thursday) and the committee is asking all players who want to play to attend training and stay for a meeting about the season.
Numbers have been down on expectations so far and if the centenary season is to proceed the club needs players to get on board.
The competition starts on April 30 and a lot of work has been done to prepare for the season and 100-year celebrations, which include a game at the Red Hill, reunion and a charity game.
Anyone who would like to volunteer or help out in any other way can also attend or contact the club.
It would be disastrous if the club cannot compete this year, especially in such a milestone year for the sport in Guyra.
Training is at 6pm at the Sporting Complex with the meeting to follow.
Last week, thirteen golfers competed in the annual NEDGA 3-day tournament down in Walcha. Eighty-five players teed off in the three-day tournament.
Wendy Jackson won the runner up for Division 3 after a nail-biting play-off.

Mid week golf
Last Mid Week Golf report for 2021-2022 competition. Overall winning team went to Baldersleigh Bashers with 844 points - congratulations. Coming in second was Full House on 831 points. It was very close scoring for the last few weeks.

Thanks again to everyone who entered teams and consistently played when the weather permitted it.
A small number of vets played an individual stableford last week with Chris Newberry winning with 36 points followed by Len Stanley on 31.
Another four players travelled to Deepwater to try their hand on sand greens. Deepwater had their Vets Open day which was well attended. Guyra player Jon Cumming had a great day winning the A Grade trophy.
This week we have over 80 players competing in the next round of Pennants at Guyra with great weather forecast and a course in great condition even with a few wet areas.
