I celebrated my birthday by going to a concert in Glasgow It started and finished with wonderful music by Debussy and Beethoven. Sandwiched in between was a piece by the Scottish composer MacMillan that was horrible. I came back to to the cards on the day after and it was also horrible as two competitors had the wrong handicap on their cards. John Crallan played off 28 when his handicap was 27, thus his winning score was to no avail as he must be disqualified for playing off a higher handicap. Next, Erica did the reverse by playing off 14 rather than the 16 she was entitled to. Had she played from a handicap of 16 she would have won with 31 points. So the winner was Brian Porteous with 30 points who will doubtless treat Erica over her misfortune.
