Horsham CC Closing Day celebrations
Saturday 18 May we had President's Day, closing day and presentation of our Singles and Doubles Champions.
A beautiful sunny day was enjoyed by 31 players,we played three games and enjoyed finger food for lunch and a yummy afternoon tea before the presentations.
I had the old grey matter working as I had eight teams each consisting of four players, on each court there were 8 players playing at one time (2 teams). Every game was a different draw and in the 3rd game some players used tennis balls, this was quite amusing especially when jumping.
The awards went to:
The Harris Trophy was presented to Gary Devlin (handicap knock out competition for handicaps 7 and under) and the Iris Williams Shield to Pat Murfett (handicap knock out competition for handicaps 8 and over)

Wow of a Metro Shield GC handicap final
The Melbourne autumn weather was brilliant again today for the Metro Shield Handicap Final.
Well, the weather was fine but there was an 8 car pile-up on the Western Ring Road and the Essendon team we held up for 45 minutes and only just scraped in to start on time. Nerve racking way to start a final.
