Alas, those without two-storey air-con-
ditioned “shacks” on Yorke Peninsula were
reduced to playing golf locally over the Easter
Weekend and we will, of necessity, name the
poor sods here below. Some were of A grade
skill levels, none more than Merv “Hammies”
Hameister, whose Stableford score of 37 spoke
volumes for the efficacy of self-administered
mendicants, or home brewed stout if you must,
as he pulled the yeast over Wayne “Chin Strap”
Nagle (34). Wayne in turn called on the good
Count Bach to push Peter Thompson back
down into 3rd. place. It was left to the follow-
ing to round out the field: I. Michael (33), R.
Hart (31), W. Lokan (31), R. Carney (30), D.
Hannaford (30) and C. Michael (24).
The B graders were stunned into submis-
sion by non-shearing sensation Scott Michael
(36), who got the jump on Geoff Leo (35) and
his good lady wife Loisue (sic) Michael (28).
We were then left with W. Berry (23), R. Hahn
(19) and A. Leaver (DNF). The C grade field
was dominated by an undaunted display from
Digby Addison (38), who got the jump on Joan
Anderson (33) and leapt over Malcolm Liptrot’s
32. Then came D. Trickett (30), M. Keast (27),
K. Kelly (23) and with patrician head held high,
a truly dignified G. Anderson (18).
Mighty Merv and diligent Digby shared a
Birdie at the eighth, while Merv held a Nearest
The Pin for his second shot into the 13th, leav-
ing Dean Trickett to claim his at the third, Loisue
(sic) Michael at the eighth and Ian Michael the
10th. Golfer of the Summer points were given
to DigbyAddison (6), Merv Hameister (5), Scott
Michael (4), Geoff Leo (3), Wayne Nagle (2)
and the remaining muppets, one each.
This Saturday is our Winter Opening two-
person Ambrose, complete with shootgun
(sic) start and the chance to snag the highly
desired and nutritious Nyowee Trophy. The
Committee will organise the “Off” with incred-
ible professionalism, while in similar style,
man-mountain Mark Loy will dispense wisdom
and liquid refreshments at the 19th. Dinner
will be served thereafter so as usual, we ask
that the men bring supberbly hand-crafted
salads and the women oodles of ridiculously
sumptuous serves of sweets. As well, our new
2013 programs are now available from the
