Competition news 

Ok, so the men's competition on Saturday was postponed until this Saturday because of the heavy rains. The ladies competition on Thursday went ahead but it was played over just nine holes because (yep, you guessed it!) the pesky wet weather had its say again! Anyway Min Fishwick was the winner with 18 points. So well done for battling the elements Min! Second place went to Jan Ravenscroft with 17 points whilst Fiona Woodcock sneaked into third place with 15 points by virtue of a card playoff.

The Ladies Dinner on Wednesday was completely unaffected by the weather and a great time was had by all! Jim Mossop spoke and apparently felt it appropriate to drop one or two of his more choice stories and colourful language! The ladies also had a magician present who thrilled all the guests. As usual Jason & Heather looked after the catering requirements superbly.


The Annual Investor's Dinner took place two days later on Friday. This is a kind of fantasy investment evening. Eric Healey had the best performance since last year closely followed by Philipa Nichols which is great. The photo below shows (from left to right) Richard Race, John Lee and the gentleman captain David Swale. John journeyed up from the south east to host the event again and called on his friend and former colleague Richard from W H Ireland stockbrokers in Manchester to do the stats and calculate the best and worst investors in attendance!

Club news 

The second and final Autumn Birdwatch was held on Monday 14th November with the first having taken place on the 26th October. The photos of the intrepid twitchers can be seen below. Peter Twist, who again did an excellent job of hosting the events, continues:

Both sessions proved to be most popular and well supported. All Birdwatchers demonstrated great interest and enthusiasm and it was a pleasure to lead them around the course.

Despite the coming of winter the weather held up very well indeed which was reflected by a good number of species and observers. The October session achieved sightings of 26 different species with the second session sightings reaching 29 species. Accounting for an overlap there was an aggregate total of 36 different species. The highlights of the October Birdwatch was a Kingfisher on the river Bollin from the 3rd fairway plus a single Rose-ringed Parakeet which noisily flew over the car park at the end of morning. The Parakeet is a new sighting for the Club Bird List which is now over 70 different species - an excellent number.

The November session produced good numbers of wintering Redwing from Scandinavia with a single Fieldfare. However, the star was an overwintering Chiffchaff which is a summer visiting warbler and should normally have migrated to warmer climes in southern Europe, North Africa and beyond. This wintering warbler was, again, a first for the Club although it is quite common around the course as a summer breeder.
