The PIGS AGM took place on Saturday 27th January at The Wheatsheaf in Little Common. Earlier in the day a game of golf was played at Seaford Head golf course. Eleven players took part. The weather deteriorated and it got wetter and wetter and windier and windier!! Cold as well!! We had just about dried out by the evening but David Mitchell was having great difficulty in thawing out!

Alan Queree was the winner with 35 points playing off a handicap of 22. Mark Ryder was the runner up with 33 points playing off a handicap of 23. Brian Hope won the nearest the pin prize. Well done, not only to the winners but to all who took part. It was agreed that the winners should have their year start handicaps adjusted by 2 & 1 for the start of the year.

Two additional members joined us for the AGM. Fixtures for the coming year are to be arranged as follows:-

April -Paul Suggitt

May - Andy Mitchell

June - Gary Honeysett & David Mitchell (subsidised event)

July - Chris Norbury

August - Mark Ryder

September - Kevin Kelly & Alan Foster

October - Neil Thorn & Len Horwood

Venues & exact dates will be shown on the Diary page of the website when known.

There had been some confusion regarding the Honeybye Trophy and this will now be called the AGM Cup & awarded to the winner of the golf event on that day in future.

The Players Player of the year vote went to Graham Mattocks. Graham was unable to attend the meeting but has promised to send me a selfie so I can include his picture in due course.

The officers elected last year agreed to stand again and were duly elected.

Caddy Responses

Golfer; "That can't be my ball, it's too old."

Caddy: "It's been a long time since we teed off, sir."

Spanish Oysters

A big Texan stopped at a local restaurant following a day roaming around in Spain ..

While sipping his wine, he noticed a sizzling,
scrumptious looking platter being served at the next table.
Not only did it look good, the smell was wonderful.
He asked the waiter, 'What is that you just served?'

The waiter replied, 'Si senor, you have excellent taste! Those are called Cojones de Toro, bull's testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy!'

The cowboy said, 'What the heck, bring me an order.'

The waiter replied, 'I am so sorry senor.

There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each morning.If you come early and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy.'

The next morning, the cowboy returned, placed his order, and that evening was served the one and only special delicacy of the day.

After a few bites, inspecting his platter, he called to the waiter and said,'These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday.'

The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, 'Si, Senor.
Sometimes the bull wins."

Tim & Janice met on a singles cruise and Tim fell head over heels for her. They discoverered they lived in neighbouring towns only a few miles apart. Tim was ecstatic. He immediately started asking her out when they got home.

Within a couple of weeks, Tim had taken Janice to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies and museums. Tim became convinced that Janice was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.

On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Tim took Janice to a fine restaurant. While having cocktails and waiting for their starter, Tim said, "I guess you can tell I'm very much in love with you. I'd like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next stage"

"So, before I get a box out of my jacket and ask you a life-changing question, it's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut. I play golf, I read about golf, I watch golf on TV. In short, I eat, sleep and breathe golf. If that's going to be a problem for us, you'd better say so now!"

Janice took a deep breath and responded, "Tim, that certainly won't be a problem. I love you as you are and I love golf too. However, since we're being totally honest with each other, you need to know that for the last five years I've been a hooker."

"Oh wow! I see", Tim replied. He looked down at the table, was quiet for a moment. Deep in serious thought he added, "You know, its probably because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball".
