Stroke and M. McGrann Bag-day playoff, the winner on this day was new Club-Manager, David-Murch, who used his day off to great effect.
His Nett 67 won him the A-Grade voucher, B-Grade was taken out by Kevin-Bargar, also with a Nett 67.
Balls extended to Nett 71. NTP winners were Trish-Eldridge, (3rd), P.K. (5th), Steuart-Hawke, (9th), Trevor-Porter, (12th), Kevin-Bargar, (15th) and to David-Murch, (17th second shot).
Five qualifiers played off for the bag, and Kevin-Conway won it by a clear margin, with a Nett 68. Next week sees the first M. McGrann qualifying for the 2022 Bag.
Peter-Fox snuck in a win this week, with 20 points, but only edging out Wayne-Kempton on a C/back. ( Clearly the irons are working for you, Wayno!)
Balls only got down to 18. Troy-Iedema snared 2 NTP’s, on the 12th and the 15th, Clint-Toohey grabbed the one on the 17th.

Stableford, you might say, Okay just a normal Stableford round – but, often ‘normal’ Stableford, or even Par rounds can still provide some outstanding results, and who really stood out on this day?
Well, both the A and B-Grade winners deserve more than just a mention.
Peter-Fox is already mentioned in this report for his impressive twilight win this week.
He has now followed that up by taking out A-Grade with 37 points (clearly in “red-hot” form) good work Foxy.
Now, B-Grade was taken out by Mick-Eldridge, a regular playing partner of your loyal scribe.
Mick had 38 points, a good score at face-value; a vastly-more impressive one when you factor-in that Mick is now well into his 80s, is waiting patiently for a knee replacement and walks the Warbie course.
Well done, Michael, all those who regularly play with you are proud of this achievement.
Balls went down to 33 (thank goodness) NTP’s went to Steuart-Hawke, (3rd), that man, Fox, (5th), ‘Gator’ Atwell, (9th), Mick-Plant, (12th) and Andy Lockey, (15th).
Next week sees the staging of the Medal of Medallists, so a stroke round again, folks.
