Alborán away day - 8 March 2013 - Results
30 people took part in the away day to Alboran on Friday 8 March 2013. Sharon Sly and Jacqui Mays were the organisers for this event.
The coach did the usual pick ups around Almerimar to take players down to the clubhouse to collect their equipment before heading off to Alboran. Jacqui and Sharon handed out start time sheets on on the coach.
It was quite an early start for most and we were very fortunate not to get rained on after several days of rain and strong winds in Almerimar. We were greeted with sun and blue skies on arrival at Alboran and the temperature was much warmer than of late. Some players were down to short sleeves during their rounds.
Our first tee off time was 10.30am and we all had to start from Tee 1 as the course was so busy. This gave the later grroups plenty of time to have a coffee or for the more energetic, practice on the range and putting green.
Everyone enjoyed a much deserved lunch following our golf. Lunch was ham and cheese served in the centre of the tables, followed by cream of fish soup, pork in a mushroom sauce and dessert. All very good and the Alboran staff looked after us very well. Also included in the price of the lunch was wine, beer and soft drinks.
Onto the prize giving and the winners on the day were as follows:
Best man - Alan Sly - 34 points (winner last year)

Following on from last year´s trend, there was a twos sweep (5 euros entry fee) organised by Mr President. However nobody in the sweep scored a 2 for the 2nd year running. So the prize money collected as the twos prize was raffled at the lunch. The 3 lucky winners were:
Nina (who has now won this for the 2nd year running!), Marianne and Els-Marie (pictured below).
All in all, it was a successful day for the ladies who won a lot of the prizes.
After the prize giving, we loaded up the coach and made our way back to Almerimar with entertainment on board from several people who sang to us.
