Competition Results

Saturday 22nd September was the third round of the Auricaria Building Contractors and Norfolk Island Pest Control Trophy, an individual stableford event very generously sponsored by Mal and Rae Tarrant and Duncan and Terry Gray.  Winning the day in the men’s section was Bruce Lockhart with 38 points from Jess Tierney, 36, Eric Hutchinson 35, Stephen Gardner 35 and Jared Magri, 33. Mal Tarrant also had a great 38 points but as he is the sponsor he couldn’t win his own event. He won a ball instead. Robyn Lockhart won the ladies with a great score of 41 points from Ngaire Christian on 34 on a countback from Terry Gray, who also got a ball. Nearest the pins were won by Bruce Lockhart on the 4th at 172 cms, James Walden on the 9/18th to 1940 cms, Kerry Robertson to 150 cms on the 2/11th and Nathan Walden to 130 cms on the 8/17th.

Scottish Blood in the Veins

An Arab Sheik was admitted to St Vincent ’s Hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arises. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out to all the states.

Finally a Scot was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds & US dollars.

Couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card & a jar of candies.

The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab this time did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab & asked him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me a BMW, diamonds & money... but you only gave me a thank-you card & a jar of candies".

To this the Arab replied: "Aye, but I now have Scottish blood in me veins".
