OWEN: The president of Adelaide Plains
and Barossa Veteran Golfers was out
bright and early to cook a breakfast of
eggs and bacon for the 44 competitors
at the Owen Golf Club on Thursday, June
The weather was dry and calm for
most of the day, resulting in outstanding
scores for the winners.
The A-grade winner and top-scorer
for the day was Yeuke Frencken from
Two Wells with 42 stableford points.
Also from Two Wells was second
placegetter P. Shields with 40, while G.
Jones of Kapunda placed third with 39.
Ball winners in the A grade were
I. Smith (Two Wells) and J. Pengilly
(Riverton) on 39, M. Hameister (Owen)
38, J. Ball (Two Wells) and R. Grigg
(Highercombe) both with 36.
Je rey Spackman of Two Wells won
the B grade with 40 points over T.
Connor (North Lakes) on 37, with B.
Kilmier (Gawler) placing third with 34.
Ball winners in the B grade were J.
Curnow and D. Trickett (Balaklava) 31,
G. Taylor (Barossa Valley) 31, T. Bateman
(Kapunda) and E. Manning (Hamley
Bridge) 30 and G. Dawson (Pen eld) 28.
John Curtin of Copper Club won the

Works) 34, J. Raynor (Barossa Valley) 33
and P. Jones (Pen eld) 32.
Owen Golf Club sponsored the day
and donated nearest the pin prizes won

Sullivan (Owen) in C grade.
The next meeting of the Adelaide
Plains and Barossa Veteran Golfers is at
Two Wells Golf Club on Thursday, July 3
with a shotgun start at 9.00am.
KAPUNDA: The gol ng gods smiled on
the afternoon players as the morning
drizzle cleared and the sun shone for the
Kapunda Rural Services stroke round.
After the good rains prior to the
weekend the course was playing much
longer than the previous week.
This was substantiated in the scores
on the day and the Gol ink calculated
DSR of 75, four higher than the previous
Captain Marty Dew had the second
best score of the day with a nett 67 (one
more than ineligible visitor Aaron Cocks)
to take home the day's major prize.
There was plenty of scrutineering of
the scorecard to ensure there were no
discrepancies and verify his standing as
As it turned out, he had plenty up his
sleeve, as the next best score on the day
from the members was a 73.
The best the A graders could muster
was a 74, including one from Kieran
Chappell (who incidentally hit o early),
which was matched by Craig McKnight
who won the grade voucher in the
Andy Peters was the only other player
to play to his handicap with a 73 nett
and a two-shot lead over president Craig
and Gawler newcomer Scottie Spencer,
who has set the standard for wearing
Andy has been in pretty good form
and deserved the B grade win.
As mentioned, Aaron Cocks, a visitor
on the day, had a nett 66 and just
failed to raise the bat but completed a
mammoth 10-shot win in the C grade.
Jim Menzel could probably consider
himself a little unlucky as his 76 was
good enough for second place.
A further ve shots back was another
newcomer from Gawler, Chris Matcham,
and Ian Gawley.
Brenton 'Matey' Anderson found out
how ckle the game can be with his
Saturday nett score being just seven
shots better than his previous week's
gross of 89.
Maybe he is looking after his
handicap for the C grade championships
It has been a while since Ian 'Poppa'
Watson raised the bat but he accepted
the Hi-Chick encouragement award with
honour, as you would expect from such
I can't nish without mentioning Bert
Pearce, who was quick to point out at
the end of the day that he didn't have to
buy any extra beers from wayward tee
shots last week.
This week we are back to a par comp
playing for the Gawler Farm Machinery
It will be great to see Scotty Jolly out
for a rumble, hopefully in good gol ng
Players are reminded about the
annual 'Pork on the Spit' night on July 5.
This is a big night and it would pay to
get your name on the list early.
Maybe without either Scottie Earle or
Al 'CC' Hayter around this year there may
be some crackling for the rest of us.
Good gol ng to all!
KAPUNDA: It was another winless
weekend for the Bombers after they
took on Angaston.
The junior colts went down by 12
goals to a pretty good Angaston out t.
Fraser Smith played a great game and
continues to impress in his rst year in
the junior colts.
Conner White also played his usual
The boys continue to battle hard and
are improving every week.
The senior colts grabbed defeat from
the jaws of victory by failing to capitalise
on a 20-point three-quarter-time lead.
Leading for much of the day the boys
took the foot o the pedal and faded to
lose by under a kick.
Trent Hunt played a fantastic game,
while Phillip Parks and Henry Smith also
played solid games.
The reserves were up to their usual
tricks early by jumping out of the blocks
Craig Prior was marking everything
that came his way, while Pete Tralaggan
and Andy Adams got plenty of the footy.
We continue to go missing for small
periods of the game and this is costing
us most weeks.
A big win is just around the corner
and maybe this game against the league
leaders is the week.
The A grade played better in patches
this week but was still a reasonable way
o the pace the whole game.
We didn't really have an answer for
the Angaston boom recruit in Lawton as
he grabbed everything in sight.
The easy ball movement through the
middle of the ground just made it too
hard for our backmen to stand a chance.
Matt Holding played a great captain's
game, while Brad Williams and Adam
Turrell continue to have good seasons.
Not having enough people
contributing each week is preventing us
from being more competitive.
This week we host Gawler Central,
which is in fantastic form, and a 100
per cent commitment is required if we
wish to take it up to the best team in the

all, with the 'progressive dinner' making

evening and a big thanks goes out to
