Competitions, Charity Events and a Wooden Spoon this Month at Pinheiros
November 12th, 2013
A Wooden Spoon For the Gents this Month at Pinheiros Altos
While there have been lots of things going on at Pinheiros Altos this month, I think we can all agree that the main topic of conversation has been concerning a certain Wooden Spoon. This "prize" was presented to the gents this year by a very pleased Ladies' Section. Rie Cherubini, our Ladies' Captain, was, deservedly, ecstatic that the women won 8 and drew 5 of the 18 matches that took place. The competition results left the Ladies in high spirits for the rest of the month, which was very eventful indeed.
Social and Charity Events for the Ladies
The Ladies also held a very successful Pink Day on the 2nd. 24 people played on the day, and each was dressed in a rather fetching shade of pink. The day was in aid of the AOA (Algarve Oncology Association) charity, which offers support social and human to oncology patients in the Algarve. Over €1,400 were raised on the day, and Shirley Griffiths, the sponsor, was so happy with how it went that she wrote us all a personal thank you email. After this, there was the Ladies' Annual Dinner with a prize-giving for the Eclectic competition. The finale to this very busy month was the Halloween special, which saw the ladies play a tricky 6-6-6 before going back to the Clubhouse dressed in spooky costumes to enjoy an incredible Halloween cake created by our very own Vera Martins.
Things haven't been quiet for the gents either, who played in a thrilling Autumn Rosebowl. The victor was Graham Lee, and a very deserved winner he was. We also saw two hole-in-ones achieved at the Mens' Roll-Ups: one by Graeme Thomson and one by Sergey Naumov. There are plenty of tournaments coming up for all, so more will have a chance to achieve something similar in the coming months.
One last note - look out for sign-up sheets for New Year's, Christmas and Valentine's events as we have many exciting things planned.
