What wonderful weather with clear blue skies and temperatures of 25C - was this really Scotland in May? - what wonderful courses in superb condition - what great company.

London Coopers arrived with 4 players and 2 wives and Glasgow fielded 5 players on Thursday and 8 players on Friday.

We played Glasgow Gailes Links in 3 x 3 balls and Glasgow Killermont in 4 x 4 balls in a London v Glasgow match with Bill Scott and Pat Kelly playing for London as they are also members of the Worshipful Company - London won the event 5 holes up.

We had dinner in Glasgow City Centre on Thursday with 10 attending and on the Friday evening we dined in Killermont Clubhouse with 21 attending included many of our ladies as well as our non-golfing Deacon.

The two days were a huge success and allowed us to get to know each other better in a very relaxed atmosphere.

We anticipate a repeat event next year - most likely in Scotland especially if we are able to guarantee the weather.
