I've now got complete info, including accommodation details, for all players. I've emailed everyone a PDF with all the details. All we need now is for the captains to pick their pairings, Doh and Dodger, it's over to you guys :D

Can I just hijack this thread with a request. This meeting is going to feature in golf monthly on the forum pages and so I will need as many pictures as possible, a breakdown of match results for each day and ideally a couple of you to give me a report on the weekend. If you could use real names and then the relevant username that would be great.

Please forward everything you have to golfmonthlyforum@yahoo.co.uk as soon after the event as possible and I'll pull somthing together for the forum pages.

England Pairings for the Friday have been done and player's informed.

Imo2 has been speaking to dodger about mixing the pairings so every group has at least got one person who has played the course before.

I hope you guys are playing this match on a scratch basis, handicaps should have nothing to do with a game of this magnitude??

What about the Victory party? I hope you have obtained the champagne on a sale-or-return basis just in case...

England v Scotland or Scotland v England: Well, I suppose the former is strictly correct given that we are playing on your turf.

Am I going to modify my signature graphic to reflect this? No !

I am actually driving to daves and leaving my car there. Then jumping in with him.

I wonder if it would make sense for me to pass you onthe way rick and we could just convoy up alongwith anyone else who we pass.

I'm trying to remain calm and unexcited about the match..... because I usually play like a twit when I build up my expectations.....but I can't help myself. It is sure to be an epic, either way. I'm looking forward to this one more than all the other meets so far. I've even taken the Thursday off for a wee practice!

Are we being told the teams on the day, Dodger?

Here's hoping that the weather improves a bit before the big event. This cold and snowy weather is beginning to get a bit too much !

It will be just our luck to turnup at a links course and find it closed from snow !

Tony,

I do happen to have a spare St George's flag that could just find it's way onto my car.

This weather is so frustrating, I just want to be out there practising.

What little golf i've played the last 2 months has been played like a tw@t so don't worry about it.

I figured we would be the underdogs before SS2 posted the H/cap average. Now I believe it, and prefer it that way.
Most of you skirt wearing, whiskey drinking, red heads :D have played together before and the course also ;)
I will try to remain composed right up to the last put dropping by the first pair out on the 10th green on the second day for a resounding whitewash :eek:

Come on, Vig,. Get it right. It's "whisky" not "whiskey".

And I have a solution to the first tee nerves. It's called a hipflask of rusty nail.....and this.....

I do appologise for the mis-spelling. :eek: God my mates dad wouldn't speak to me again if he thought i'd done that.

I was there one new year and my choice of drinks was ......................................................... Whisky!. He poured me a tumbler full and told me he would be insulted if I didn't finish it. This was about 4 in the morning after already partaking a skinfull.

Where do I get that driver from. That could be the answer to my prayers :D
