Brian’s Memorial

Brian’s Memorial

20 golfers played in a game to remember Brian Porteous, a year and a day from his untimely death. Brian was a remarkable putter and had a lovely sense of humour. It seemed appropriate to have a format where golfers putted with the longest club in their bag on the greens. Three tied for the Brian Porteous Trophy, a stunning wood turning from the syscamore tree by the clubhouse by Rex Dressler. Ewan Kelly, Mark Evans and Jeff Sutcliffe ties with 30 points over the 15 holes. Ewan won with a better inward half of 17 points.

Winner of the prize draw, a bottle of 10 year old Laphroaig whisky donated by Dave Nielsen, was Wave Tyrrell. The draw raised £210 to which £40 will be added from the Seniors fund to pay for the plaque for Brian’s seat. Flowers were placed by the seat. Other winners were Janette Davidson a bottle of wine, Murray Johnstone a bottle of wine, Derek Shipley a bottle of beer and Nevile White some placemats.

The captain Alan Thorburn presented the trophy to Ewan and he thanked all who contributed a great day.
