The Vets last Tuesday played round 1 of the Jack Cross Memorial Bisque par competition. Depending on how players allocate their handicap, this type of competition can turn very ordinary rounds into respectable scores while good rounds can result in an excellent score.

Best scores on the day were Trevor Clayton +7, Garry Smith, Max Baylis and Don Kinnell +5, Rob Saxton +4, Neil Stewart +3, Gay Martin and Chris Connor +2, Mike Newport and Dave Pacey +1, Keith Brown all square.
