Jill Grice, Lyn Pullan and Frances Nicol represented Paeroa at Whakatane. With torrential rain for the drive down and the weather experts predicting 98% chance of rain for the Monday we were all geared up to face the elements!! But as you see, it was a beautiful sunny day in the Bay. Our golf didn't shine as much tho -placed 11th. Otumoetai won it for the 2nd year in a row with 100 stableford points. Lovely course and lovely company. Jill even learnt a new card game!!
