100 Club

The June STAR 100 Club draw will be carried out on 6th July at the OW Golf Day so the June report will be added shortly afterwards.

The May Old Wymondhamians 100 Club draw was carried out at The Crown in Pulham Market and this month’s winners were:-

Aubrey Hammond - resident of Hethersett

&  

Flossie Foulis Brown [nee Parrot] - resident of Bramley, Hampshire

Cheques, in the sum of £55.00, will be dispatched shortly 

This months attendees alongside Steve, his wife Bev & myself were Sandra Howard, Beverly Sennett [nee Millard] & husband Richard, Jo Voelker [nee Bassingthwaighte] and John Mewse [Old Wymondhamians Chairman] 

The Crown was well frequented for a Wednesday evening and we were able to sit outside the whole evening opposite the village green [& competing hostelry, The Falcon]. Their website description is very accurate - Stop off at The Crown Pulham Market to experience a thatched country pub with roaring fires in the winter and alfresco dining in the summer, overlooking the village green and next door to the historic church.

The beers on offer were Woodfordes Wherry, Adnams Ghost Ship & Southwold Bitter & a citrusy beer whose name I neglected to note down! I can see why Steve chose to live in the village with two pubs within a 5 minute walk! A score of 9.0 is well deserved.

Just a reminder of the forthcoming draw dates & venues:-

JUNE “STAR” draw  – is to be held at the Old Wymondhamiams Golf Day at Sprowston Hallon Friday 6th July 2018. The prizes are £500, £200 & £75.

Again, Steve & I will be joining the throng during late afternoon for evening supper. This is always well attended but don't forget to let Bob Rowell bob.e.rowell@outlook.com ] know if you would like to attend the Golf or dinner. 

JULY draw – our now traditional trip to the North Norfolk coast will be held at The Jolly Sailorsin Brancaster Staithe on Wednesday 25th July 2018 at 8.00pm.

AUGUST draw – as some of you will be aware, Mike Comber has organised a Wycol reunion which includes a tour around the College followed by a BBQ.  This happens on Friday 24th August 2018.  

We have decided to tag along and carry out the 100 club draw at the BBQ.  The tour starts at 10.30 with the BBQ being between 12.30 & 1400. 

If you would like to join the tour & BBQ, please contact Mike in the first instance:-michael.comber42@btinternet.com

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson

June Update

 

OW Golf Day - Friday 6th July 2018 - Sprowston Manor

Each year Bob Rowell (52-59) organises a Golf Day and Dinner which is open to all Old Wymondhamians.

The event becomes more popular each year and always attracts a large contingent of golfers of varying standards. However, golf is not compulsory and many join later in the day for dinner and an evening of good company. The cost of the Golf and Dinner is £61.00 and just the Dinner is £28.00.

We have all enjoyed meeting old friends at this annual event and it would be great to be joined by any new faces.

Phil and Steve will also be carrying out the OW 100 Club June Star Draw.

If you would like to attend for the golf, dinner or both please contact Bob: bob.e.rowell@outlook.com or 01629 582220/07710 229126
