Alyth Hit by Lightning

The Junior Meeting for the Drysdale and Karen Dallas Trophies at Alyth turned out to be a bit of a damp squib!

As all around suffered a torrential down pour Alyth stayed dry long enough to let all the girls get off the first tee but the thunder rumbled ever closer and as the last group putted out on the first green the hooter sounded and everyone had to make a dash for cover.

When a head count was taken, back in the club house, three girls and three ladies were missing!!
It was soon discovered that they had taken refuge in a summerhouse somewhere near the eighth so when the rain eased buggies were dispatched to rescue them and all was well.

We all enjoyed a good lunch and lots of chat but no more golf.

Many thanks to Alyth for their warm hospitality.

We had provisionally booked Monday 5th October to replay this competition but this does not suit some of the girls so we will let everyone know when we find another date.
