Captain's Day 2017

Assorted Western Heroes and Bandits. Assorted Western Heroes and Bandits.

A great afternoon was enjoyed by all members present on Saturday 12 August at our annual Captain's Day, which is the one occasion each year when we really let our hair down.  This year the theme was a Western Hoedown with barbecue, food and drinks all generously provided by our hosts, Club Captain, Gerry O'Keefe, and his wife Jane ably assisted by Reiner Wohlfarth and his wife Shirley Burdon.

The lighthearted bowling competitions were organised by our Competitions Secretary, Gerry Tredgett, and began with a Spider Competition, won by Michael Nichols, followed by a Triples Competition, won by Margaret Gardiner, Ray Higgins and Pete Radley.

Fancy Dress was optional, but most members chose to participate, as can be seen from the photos.  The day was a resounding success and our thanks go to Gerry, Jane, Reiner, Shirley and Gerry T for all their hard work, and to various western heroes who provided desserts.  More photos in the Gallery.
