100 Club

The July 100 Club draw was carried out at The Red Lion in Stiffkey and this month’s winners were:-

Karen Snook [Rumball] - resident of Silfield, Wymondham
Chris Booth - resident of Lytham St. Annes

Cheques, in the sum of £55.00 each, have been dispatched.

Steve and I were joined by Sandra Howard, Jon Tolley, Brian Ellis, Guy & Lynne [Semmens] Pettit, Jo [Bassingthwaighte] & Norbert Voelker and, for the first time, Richard Wilson [ex Salisbury 1967-72] and photographic evidence can be seen here.

The Red Lion was busy but we managed to sit outside under a canopy to chat away. The main beers seemed to be from the Woodfordes stable with Nelson’s Revenge & Wherry and a couple of guest beers whose names I neglected to note down! A rating of 9.5 seems appropriate.

The August OW 100 club draw will be held at The Mulberry Tree in Attleborough on Wednesday 23rd August at 8.00pm.

Hope to see some of you there.

A slight delay due to holidays, but here are the results of the June draw in case you haven't seen them!

The June OW STAR 100 Club draw was carried out at the OW Golf Day held at Sprowston Manor Hotel and the winners were:-

Mike Stacey resident of Litchard, Bridgend - £500.00

Sheila Forde [Fenn] – resident of Framlingham Earl - £200.00

Bob Brown - resident of West Hunsbury, Northampton - £75.00

As ever this was a convivial get together excellently organised by Bob Rowell and Bob's report and photos by David Spinks can be seen here.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson
