Autumn Meeting at Alloa Schawpark on Friday 7th September

74 Midland Vet Ladies enjoyed the parkland course of Alloa for their Autumn Meeting.  Though the day started with a little drizzle, and there was one shower of rain, the day was pleasant and warm.  The course was in reasonable condition considering the amount of rain we have had and, as always, some of our members managed to master the conditions, and returned good scores.  The CSS for the competition was 75 (SSS 72, Par 73).

The winner of the Patrick Rosebowl (awarded for the best scratch score), on a very tight countback from Linda McDonald, with a score of 79, was Linda Dyball

The winner of the 'Owl' Trophy (for younger Vets aged under 65!) was Dorothy Whytock with 93-19=74.  The winner of the Senior Trophy (for the rest of the Vets) was Midland Vets Captain - Winifred MacCallum with 83-11=72
