The Halfway House Ladies

The sun was out, the Half Way House was full of tasty goodies to eat and drink, which was supervised by 4 lovely ladies – Gloria, Shirley, Erin and Marie.
Di Lawrence-Watt controlled the video camera on the 15th hole in case anyone had a hole in one to win a car, but that was not to be.
However, Karen set the icing on Mags’s cake that day by getting her first hole in one on the 3rd hole – perfect timing, Karen, winning her £250!
Winners of the Captain’s Jug were Don and Ruth Simpson, with a fantastic score of 46 points and they were presented with the trophy at the Captain’s Dinner the following evening at Penina Hotel.
It was a superb evening, with great music provided by The Outsiders and the guests boogied the night away in true SDM fashion.
Many members and friends have to be congratulated in making the whole weekend such a success – too many to mention, but they know who they are!

Les and Mags

Following an extremely cold and early start at 7.42, with many SdM members in attendance, New Captain Mags hit her first drive 125 metres, a distance guessed correctly by President Peter Chapman, who kindly donated his winnings to her Charity - Algarve Oncology Association.

The total sum raised on the day, due to members generosity, was an impressive €678.

Jimmy Goodfellow

What a great weekend.
We were very lucky with the weather on Saturday for the Jimmy Goodfellow Quaich competition. It was wonderful to see a full house plus, meaning that a partial shotgun start was needed. This obviously demonstrated the respect for the man. The following day, 84 members including their guests turned up to celebrate Jimmy’s life and of course Saint Andrew’s Day by meeting for a buffet lunch at Pinta Golf Club. it was a great way to complete a fantastic weekend. We were very honored that Dawn Goodfellow, accompanied by her Grandson in Law, Kevin, agreed to present the prizes and it was lovely to see many of her family joining us to celebrate the occasion. We were entertained by The Poor Man’s Band with a set of traditional Scottish songs followed by a set of up beat songs, written by Scottish artists. It was quite gratifying that €230 was raised for the Captain!s Charity, Portuguese Families in Need. Well done SdM and the all the prize winners.

Well done to all the competitors, some fabulous scores. It seems appropriate the winners on this Scottish occasion were "The Scotts"!
