West and Midland Vets
West Vets Team 

Midland Vets Team
Fourteen very hardy Vets took to the fairways at Ralston GC today, Monday June 9th in the match for players of handicap 10 and over. 
As the photos show, we started out in sunshine but soon the rain started and unfortunately it persisted for the rest of the day. 
Lynn McColl  - Soaked !!
Lynn McColl decided it was too warm for waterproofs at first and by the time she thought that maybe she ought to put them on......... well she was wet through by then and decided not to bother!!!!!
Ralston GC looked after us superbly and despite the awful conditions, Midland Vets thoroughly enjoyed the course - and the lovely meal afterwards.
West Vets were superb and ran out resounding winners by the margin of 6-1. 

Anna receives the Trophy from Liz
Captain Anna Telfer proudly received the Mid West Trophy from her counterpart, Liz Fertacz.

The annual Scratch match against East Vets took place on Thursday, June 5th at West Kilbride GC (and many thanks to them for providing courtesy of the course and also superb hospitality)
Bacon rolls, coffee and tea and plenty of chat and catching-up were enjoyed before the serious business of the day took place.
