    Season has ended

    That’s my next target too. Thought I had it last Saturday then threw in a stupid Bogey, Double Bogey combo to finish 3 over. Was also stood on the 18th at level par earlier in the season, then Doubled it 😂. Was a matchplay comp though so doesn’t really count!

    Season has ended

    Been a decent season so far…. H/C started at 10, now down to 7 (and should be a shot or two lower but I’ve played a lot of matchplay games. Lost in the final of the individual matchplay. Won the pairs matchplay with Birchy off here. Won a Saturday comp. Won a Wednesday comp. Top 10’s in...

    Panic buying fuel

    Having been a recent victim of excessive logistics delays due to the Suez issue and weather delays, I do fully agree that these have been major driving factors in localised delays. However, to dismiss the almost instant and significant impact of brexit on the supply chains of mainland UK appears...

    Panic buying fuel

    I agree that there were longstanding issues all across Europe, but B (and the language/behaviour of some who should know better) has certainly made things worse. My minor irritation (for another thread) is those who ignore this and say that B has not been a major contributing factor 👍

    Panic buying fuel

    I understand what you’re saying, but wasn’t that the case last year, and the 30 before that?

    Are they having the same issues the mainland UK is having?

    Panic buying fuel

    Great post. Very informative. (Genuinely, just in case anyone decided that I’m being facetious) Understanding the above, why do you think that the mainland UK is only really starting to feel the effects of this decades old issue now?

    Panic buying fuel

    Picked the lad up from work at 11pm last night. Drove past a big BP garage, just off the M6 J27. No one at the pumps, so I popped in and picked up £35 worth of diesel (which was just enough to top the tank). Won't need to visit again for a 3-4 weeks at least, even with a trip up to the Lakes at...

    Panic buying fuel

    Exactly. We’re quick to remove the blame from exactly where it actually lies. There is a significant minority of people in the country who are absolute weapons of mass stupidity. This has been evidenced widely over the last 5 years. Blame them, not the companies that feed off them.

    Panic buying fuel

    Almost makes you wonder why millions of people still buy the printed media eh? Once again, The Media only serves up what the majority want to read/hear. They’d go out of business otherwise (except the BBC obviously). Once people stop relishing sensationalist headlines then we’ll get the Media...

    Random irritations of the day......

    What I suspect he's referring to is the fact that in this country we struggle to predict the type of weather we are going to get and cannot normally plan accordingly. I spent some time in Canada as a kid as I have relatives there. They used to put snow chains on the cars on a specific weekend...

    WHS

    Vast majority of comps at mine are Medal. Maybe a few at the start of the season and then an occasional midweeker are Stableford. Not sure I'd like to play at a Club that played mainly Stableford. Can't even fully explain why. Just seems a bit odd...

    Random irritations of the day......

    I know. It's more that fact that it's being touted as a huge benefit (by some), when it's actually pretty much an irrelevance to the majority (not that I've spoken to everybody obviously). It's a minor annoyance, but not unexpected I suppose...

    Random irritations of the day......

    I'm sure a few others will be thrilled by this as well... Personally, I can think of few things more pointless...
