Burapha our usual venue for a Friday with a much depleted field owing to the fact that there were about 4 teams from the Billabong playing in the annual Poppy day at the same venue. We played C and D loops that were in great condition, in wonderful temperatures, it must be the best time of the year to play golf in Thailand. Without stooping to the same level as another bar owner on the dark side it is not very nice to lower the status of the Poppy appeal those brave people laid their lives on the line for the freedom we enjoy today, and it must be added that over the last few years the Billabong has been the biggest contributer of funds for this very appeal. Now with only 3 groups playing we were away behind a team of Koreans that held up the field waiting until we were almost finished putting before racing to the next tee to hold us up some more, but we did finish. There were no two’s so the prize’s went down to 3rd place which was taken by Thiery Petrement with a fine 35 points, 2nd place went to the man of the moment Jason Barnett with 36 points, he even cut himself to a 3 handicap and still managed to score that amount of points, beaten on the day by Steve Dodd wit 38 points.
