Some members of the club spent 3 weeks in Florida in Jan / Feb. where they took part in 3 tournaments; Naples, Englewood and Punta Gorda. We were delighted with the success we had, everyone coming back with medals as well as a slight tan!

Visitors from the West
Welcoming a group from Brampton Club
On Monday 9th December we welcomed a group from Brampton, who joined us for our regular club night. It's always fun to welcome new people and it didn't take a massive twisting of arms to get them to join us at the pub afterwards!

On Saturday 3 of the club went to Wetheral to attend a training session with Jane Portnell. The session looked particularly at dinking and the 3rd shot drop 'the long dink!'. We are planning to ask Jane to run a session in Sunderland soon, watch out for more information
