Speaking of Josh, I haven't seen him at Blakes for ages? I did offer him a Banter Free round a couple of weeks ago, So he could put a Handicap card in, but I didn't get a reply?  I'm Beggining to think I really do make him nervous!

 Last I heard from Josh was some mumbling ---   Eppin'  f'ing  'orest.

Den, Was it a Muffled cry? or a full Scream? I thought he'd been buried deeper than that!  

Testing the water here let's throw a date in the air and find out how many of us are available:How about Friday 30th Jan 

Sounds Good to me! Where?

Sounds good to me too, how about your place 1 over (I mean Blakes, not your back garden!). I can't get any dates together for Ilford yet as we haven't had next years fixture list yet (should have it in the next week).

Friday 30th Jan sounds good to me too and at Blakes

Ok I'll sort the date out! 18 holes Golf + Coffee and Bacon roll?

mmmmm bacon, sounds good! what time does the bar open at blakes?

Bar Opens whenever we get there!  (I can get served later, But you have to track the Guvnor down!) 

I saw him today, So he must be back! Right off to work see ya later!

30th Jan is ok with me too.

Hi all,New to this site and would love to join in with this event. I am in Eastwood, very near to Garons and Belfairs. Haven't played for 5 weeks and really need to get some practice in also if anyone in the area has a spare space for Sunday Great site by the way!!

Welcome Webby, as they say 'the more the merrier'. What do you play off?Steph, I've just seen our Jubilee Cup team have been drawn against Garon Park for next year. Will be good to get some practise on there before we play your team! updated list...Clubs:Round 1: Blakes - Fri 30th Jan (TBC)IlfordGaron ParkNazeingMembers:1 overporkyDan24StephNiftypoz13MonkeytaffpastyGreenflyWebby23

Hi Porky,I float between 23 and 24 but rarely hit 36 points to be honest so can see it going up again soon!!

Hi Porky - hoping for an away advantage then

Hi Steph, its just a team comp for mid-handicappers (male). We got to the quarter finals last 2 years. I'm hoping not to be able to be picked for the team next year, as that'll mean I've got my handicap down below 12! lol

Hi Webby, played Belfairs yesterday, a bit damp with 2 temp greens, still better than being at work

I'd like to do this but can't do during the week unless it's school holidays! Keep me on the list though. I played Blakes last holiday and shot 102 - was relatively happy but could have been a lot better!

Welcome Stuart, you're more than welcome to play if possible.updated list...Clubs:Round 1: Blakes - Fri 30th Jan (TBC)IlfordGaron ParkNazeingMembers:1 overporkyDan24 Steph Nifty poz13Monkeytaff pastyGreenflyWebby23Stuart Lock

Thanks. I definitely can't make 30th January though.

I will Book 3 Tee Slots at Blakes for 10 ish on Friday 30th Jan.That way we have scope for 3 or 4 balls depending on numbers! Guest Fees are £15 on a Friday and Bacon Rolls are £4 (Tea and Coffeee is Free) so you are looking at £19 for the Golf and Sarnie! I say we round it up to £20 and have a Small Cash Prize for Nearest the Pin on the 8th Hole! The Infamous "ISLAND" What say you?

Sounds good to me - just hope the weather behaves itself

Oh yeah and a 10AM Tee off Ensures we have time for a Few Scopes after all the Golfing Carnage! Also GPS enabled Buggies are available for about £20 a round (I never use them so I don't know Cost) these may need to be pre-ordered so If there are any Lazy ba****ds amongst you let me know.

Where abouts is Blakes??

All sounds good to me 1 over. Webby, its up at North Weald, probably a 30 min drive from you I'd say. Your best way is probably up to Chelmsford and turn left (otherwise known as west) onto the a414, drive towards the M11 and you'll see it on your left eventually.

As Porky says its on the A 414 as you come in from Chelmsford, Past Ongar, 3 Miles before Harlow, Dead Opposite the Travelodge hotel and Little chef

Sounds like lots of fun times ahead - wish I was an Essex girl.

Mary shame on you! Leaving Steph to try and Control all us Reprobates on her own!
