Golfers contemplating the weather prospects

The continual rain did not stop the WC Association Fifties having a great day's golf on the new extended course at Sprowston Hall, Norwich. The Hotel rounded off a memorable day with an excellent meal in the evening when the fifteen golfers were joined by a further twenty one former students/spouses of the Fifties, including Robert Colson and Iris Hobart (Broughton) visiting from their homes in Australia.

Bob Rowell presented the prizes to Mens' winner Barry Adkins and Ladies' winner Vera Spinks.  The Longest Drive was by Barry Croxford.  Nearest the hole was by Roland Clarke and the treasured booby prize went to Terry Nicholls.

Next year's WCA Chairman John Beales thanked Bob Rowell for organising another excellent event and congratulated him on his forthcoming Presidency of Leicester Tigers Rugby Club, for whom he played for several years. John brought to the attention of those present the proposed 100 Club through which it will be possible to raise funds to help finance the activities of the WCA for which no membership fee is charged.  Mike Herring distributed Entry Forms to those who were interested and a full set of pictures of the Sprowston day and dinner will be sent to all those who subscribe. John was also able to announce June 18 2004 as the date of next years Fifties reunion at the College. The idea that the Golf day and evening should be repeated on Friday June 17 preceding the College reunion was favourably received.
