SAMS Captain Corner 7th July 2012


This week in the wonderful world of SAMS, sponsored by Lazzarra Lechier Incorporated, 2 legends of SAMS celebrated their birthdays – Mike Dix and Tommy Webbster. So we as the SAMS captains, decided to give one of them a nice German war helmet as a party hat – Dixie you looked so good. Dixie collected from: Dave “I did a karate chop on my golf bag” Kelly, Charger “slippery grips” Jack, Naartjie for his Zimbabwe maths on the scorecard, Roy Dinsdale for writing the SAMS captains a love letter about Trevor Jacksons playground antics on the 16th green – and of course Trevor contributed to the potty. Gavin White got 2 visits from Dixie – one for supporting the sharks and the other for supporting Lenn’s Proshop by buying new shoes, thinking his shoes were lost, meanwhile they were left in the cleaning room.

Amongst all the fun and antics at prize giving, Stuart Smith did get a mention for his nearest to the pin on the 15th and Dave Gardner for the best net of 67. Dave’s performance definitely helped his playing partners into 1st place - Charger, Marshal and Vic were very happy with their prizes. A memorable SAMS moment occurred during Stuart’s joke, about a horse called Lone star - shortly after the joke began Vic Field shouted, ”there isn’t anyone young enough in this bar who hasn’t heard that joke”. Stuart was so taken back by this outburst he never finished his joke. You will just have to come to the next prize giving to see if he finishes it.

On a very sad note, for SAMS and Wanderers Golf Club, was the news of Jack Sharpios passing. There wasn’t a dry eye in the bar when Andre Gross read a recent letter sent to Chris Leicher from Jack about his time at Wanderers Golf Club. Jack you will be sorely missed.
