Riverside Golf Club News
We have another beauty, what about one of our Grand Dads that was baby sitting his 5yr old grand daughter. The child had never used a micro wave oven before but yet was asked to get some popcorn happening in the microwave, “Just punch in 30 seconds” was the request. Well after several minutes realised the microwave was still going, along with a few sparks and funny noises.
Please note we have Marcus, our bar manager, on annual leave at the moment and at the end of the week Sam O’Keefe, our Course Super will be using up more of his accrued leave.

Footy Tipping: Ian Main
Contrary to the comment last week, it does get easier or so the latest results indicate. Most tipsters got 7, 8 or 9 right. 16 tipsters this week. And Michael Jackson only just nudged out Jack Hill by the slender figure of 3 points in the margin. The final 8 is still not confirmed and mathematically there are still 14 clubs in the hunt although it must be said that some teams chances are a bit like tattslotto ie. three fifths of almost nothing. Steve Tomlin and Doreen Boyd are still equal on 65.9% with Peter Bond next on 62.6% in the Master Tipper competition so it might come down to who tips the best in the Grand Final. Still only $2 to enter and prizes are given out each week. So have a go.
The winners were
1st Michael Jackson 9 out of 9 and nearest margin $16
2nd Jack Hill 9 out of 9 and next nearest margin $9
3rd Len Healey 8 out of 9 and nearest margin $3
Encouragement Award Jan Main $2
