FRIDAY OCTOBER 18TH
Never missing the opportunity to help those in need, Capt. Bob and Sandy heard about the Ban Krasang School, just outside Buriram, who had a serious need to have an additional classroom for their ever expanding school. The staff at the school started to build an extension as a classroom but the funds dried up and the new extension was left without walls or a floor. So Bob and Sandy decided to have this Charity Golf Day to provide some funds to help complete the project. A mixed Rainbow competition on the East and South courses attracted a number of Billabong regulars and it is hoped to raise, with the help of sponsors who have donated generously to the cause, more than 90,000 baht. Rainbow competitions are all about choice and it appears that the French contingent made some very wise decisions for they occupied 1st and 2nd spots. Thiery Temine (24) won the day with 41 points with 22 points on the back nine helped considerably by five 3 pointers. Another Thiery- Petrement this time – (12) had only two tee shots from the blues on the way home, 18 points and 36 overall for 2nd place. Greig Ritchie (35) had an amazing 21 points after the turn but the blob on the last was compensated by a birdie on the 17th for 5 points. Arch Armstrong (9) came 4th with 34 points. Near pins went to Miss Na, Gerry Roche, Tony Oakes and Bob St. Aubin. A box of beer was donated by Bob St. Aubin and won by Miss Phen Snider.
