100 Club

The June OW STAR 100 Club draw was carried out at the annual OW Golf Day at Sprowston Manor Hotel on 4th July. This months winners were:-

Bob Brown - resident of Lavenham, Suffolk

Marilyn Gamble [Leake] – resident of West Lynn, King’s Lynn

Adrian Osler – resident of Lesbury, Alnwick

Cheques in the sum of £500.00, £200.00 & £50.00 have been despatched.

It is a few years since we have joined with Bob Rowell and his golfers at Sprowston and it was good to see some familiar faces after their round of golf and at the dinner afterwards. As ever, I think that Steve and myself were the youngest ones in the room! “Where are all the younger golfers”, I am constantly asked but I have no answer! If you can swing a club and hit a ball a few feet, you will be welcomed with open arms!! There is a prize for the worst score on the day, [someone has to give Mike Herring some competition for that prize!], so it’s not only the better players that walk off with the main prizes!!

The July OW draw will be held at The Salthouse Dun Cow on Wednesday 23rd July 2014. This will be our annual North Norfolk visit. Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson
OW 100 club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com

June Update



The Show was a great success again this year and it was good to see so many OWs come by to say hello. The College also had the honour of a visit by His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex to their stand to make some presentations to Duke of Edinburgh Award students.
