Friday, May 20


As one would say, it was another day in paradise; but not for the chooks.

Chook fowls were introduced and Irish Cardelli could not wait.

He streaked ahead of the field to reach the Chook pen first by 4 lengths to grab top chook.

The Pom and The man ran neck and neck (pun) for second feathers so we handed them a roasted rooster each.

Pin feathers went to Irish and The man, while birds of a different feather were plucked by Gaza and Irish.

Richie the Chook muncher wanted a change of diet so he had 14 on one hole just to win the beans.

Next Friday is Sausage sizzle, cooked chooks and voucher day. All welcome. 2pm hit off.

Don't forget we are on winter time so hit off is at 2pm.

If you are running late, phone 0407 860 871 and someone will wait.

See you there and bring a friend. No QGU handicap required.

All players are welcome.

Cheers until next Friday.

Officer Dibble.
