Those few who were there discuss it rarely, but
do so in awe at the perspicacity of David Rodgers’
acceptance speech given on his assuming the mantle
of our Captain. Quoth he: “The game of golf must
ever be considered only on an atemporal perspec-
tive, in which all our past, present and future games
lie on the one dimension, that of time itself”. So true,
so succinct, so gnomic, so synoptic and so ably
realised last Saturday by Callum Michael, whose
Stableford score of 44 points blitzed the gathered
A grade gargoyles. You can toss a coin to decide
whether or not Ian Michael (40) beat Wayne Nagle
on a count back because The Book is very tight
lipped on the matter. It does, however, record that
then came M. Hameister (39), B. Fitton (35) and D.
Best of the B grade was that most venerable Mr.
John Michael (44), who vaulted over “Rampaging”
Ron Carney (42) and non-shearing sensation Scott
Michael (40). Left to parade about in their double-
rinsed Scandinavian shooting sox were G. Leo
(34), W. Berry (32), R. Hahn (30), R. Leaver (29)
and M. Smith (26).
Trevor Gilmour (39) trounced fellow C grader
Dennis Goudie aided by the good Count, allowing
Austin Henstridge to lurk into 3rd. with 33. M. Bell
(27) was saved from humiliation by M. Keast (25).
No Birdies appear on these hallowed leaves, but
Nearest The Pins were held by Geoff Leo at the 3rd.,
our glorious President Ian Michael at the 8th. and
2nd, while demon Scot, Rabbie McHogg, having
not left us his card, nailed the 15th. nonetheless.
So, Golfer of the Summer points splattered onto
the shoulder pads of, I guess, Callum Michael (6),
John Michael (5), Ron Carney (4), then maybe Ian
Michael, Wayne Nagle and/or Scott Michael the 3
& 2 counts - take your pick for again as The Book
reveals nada. All other of we 21 players certainly
got one each.
This Saturday we’ll tackle not only a Stableford,
off the Blue Tees apparently, but also the 1st. of 2
consecutive such events in search who will win the
much vaunted Michael Trophy. Dealing with proced-
ings “a priori” will be that stolid, staunch son of the
soil Scott Michael, leaving matters “a posteriori” in
the firm, but caring hands of Graham “Emu” Ackland.

Saturday’s competition was again called off
due to the heat rule while Balaklava fielded 24 in a
stableford competition with seven of the 24 players
playing in the afternoon and with the maximum tem-
perature reaching only 35.8 after 3pm one wonders
whether we should rethink the new rule.
Thursday’s Stableford competition attracted 17
players with Ed Manning winning the day on a count
back from Kieth Kluske & Lance Hatcher all scoring
40 points while others to do well were Anton Noack
39, Bob Hillier, Ross Hienze 38, Errol Branson 37,
Ian Rohde 36. Birdies: Ian Rohde & Errol Branson
9th, Bob Ahola 14th. Nearest to the pins: Bob Ahola
9th, Bob Hillier 7th & 12th.
The weather was to blame for some very hot and
sweaty tennis players last week, with some hard
fought matches played. Both Div 2 matches were
close with almost identical final scores.
Bec Houston’s Grubs defeated the absent Diane
Gregor’s Gnats, 4-27 to 2-22. Henry Lane filled in
for the Grubs at the last minute and had a good
hit against fill-in Darren Woodroofe, including a
tiebreaker, with respective partners Peter Rohrlach
and Sue Nicholson. Wade Hudson took the honours
in his battle against young Sam Vankleef two sets
to one, with some great rallies played. After a slow
start for Bec, she cranked up a gear and won the
next two set, in identical 5-3s, against opponent
The other Div 2 match saw Alice Parsons’ Worms
scrape through to defeat Cherie Cleary’s Slugs 4-28
to 2-21. Alice and Carolyn Mutton won a first set tie
over David Northcott, who was sporting a biceps
sleeve tan, and Danielle Murphy. Slugs Cherie
and much improved Viet Nguyen, took the next set
in a close 5-3 over Fran Henderson and Warren
McRostie, who was using his hot weather racquet.
The middle two sets weren’t close and went
one each way, so with Worms only one game ahead
heading into the last two, the pressure was on.
Worms coped better and must have more stamina,
as they took the last two to claim the win.
Div 1 Scott McDonalds Turtles had a good win
over Pauline Hill’s Newts 5-29 to 1-19. The scores
were a bit off, with three 5-3s and three 6-2s, but
unfortunately, only one 6-2 went to the Newts, Paul
McBride and fill-in Marty Brice over the old girl
Julia Hoskin and young sporting lad and the next
Bruce McAvaney, Jordan Taylor. The Newts were
asking, as indeed was everyone else, “Where’s
Wally?” Apparently he’s aggravated an old injury,
softsomethingorother, and is having a few weeks
off, but has assured me he will be back in time for
the final week. Scott showed no mercy on his much
older opponent, Colin Mutton, but they had some
great rallies with power hitting. Turtles Helen Barry
and opponent Pauline, had their usual display of
long rallies and angled shots, but Helen took the
honours three zip in that battle.
It was the worst scorer for the night, but only
because Andrew “Douglas Jardine” Lane’s Beavers
resorted to bodyline tactics to defeat Chris Curnow’s
Gators, 6-38 to 0-10. Dave Cmrlec was on season
debut as was his opponent Louise Michael. Dave
also tried to join the bodyline team, but the verdict
was probably accidental. Chris and partner Tania
Allen had to reveal their daks in the very first set of
the night, to opponents Andrew and Joyful Ryan.
Louise and Jarrad Thiele, who was sporting a head
cold, managed to get three from Dave, and partner
Darren Scholz, who appears to have enhanced
pecs these days. Tania managed to save her daks
by one game with Jarrad, and although sporting a
strained calf muscle for the last set with Louise, who
was herself sporting a bruised hand from Jardine,
was happy to get three against the dazzling duo of
Dave and Joy. Chris and Jarrad managed to win
one against Scholzy and Bruiser.
