Paddington  Challenge – 22nd May 2015
What a fantastic day! A great turnout for our annual “Fun” competition in warm, sticky weather at Brampton Park Golf Club. Austen Smith, Jack Muir & Dave Oswald won the Paddington Trophy this Year. John Pigott won the mens longest drive, Eric Burgess won the mens “nearest the pin” and Lisa Smith the ladies “nearest the pin”. The “prize giving” in the Addison in the evening was well attended with much merriment and laughter fueled by lots of beer & wine!
