The teams all arrived as planned to start the day with coffees. BUT.....the rains came along with the wind before the teams set off. Not only that but hailstones had fallen locally e.g. Gresford. Colin Brown, Clays Seniors Captain was in the first team to set off only to return to the start again after only taking some 2 shots. He indicated it was too cold to play and the event was cancelled. It was the correct decision because for the next couple of hours the weather remained the same with heavy showers and more hailstones. The temperature was between 5-6C.....and it is nearly the end on May! Derek set off for North Wales only to be astonished at the improving weather after Colwyn Bay were the sun was shining and the temperature was indicated at between 11-12C on the car temperature guage. Even the roads showed no signs of it having rained as well! Arriving in Snowdonia even small amounts of snow could be seen on Snowdon!

A large contingent of Clays Seniors competed at http://www.arscottgolfclub.co.uk/ in a pairs betterball stableford competition. The weather was atrocious with high winds and rain for most of the day and temperatures only around 10C.
Some gossip and photos below. More photos have been added via the official photographer on the first tee.
Colin Brown (Seniors Captain) along with his partner Tom McGrady had 34 points which was the highest score of all of the Clays competitors..well done!
Derek had an unfortunate shot on the 17th tee. In high winds and driving rain Tom hit a superb shot to about 1 o'clock on the green and then had 2 putts for his 3. Then Derek took a rescue club and after teeing his ball up took his shot not only to see where the ball went but to lose his grip on the club which ended up some 30 yards away to the left of the tee. Applause started from some other members including Mike Turner who just happened to be passing in his car on his way home. He had stopped to allow Derek to play his shot and indicated he wished he had videod the event!
Nice view down one of fairways
