|Another fine sunny Sunday morning at BG. Very few on-site today as there is a club invite to Bob Whitfield's nearby, and most of the club members have gone there. I found Allan Rod & Len busy in the middle area cutting grass. Mark B & Mike B and Peter Mc were in the club house chatting. Later in the morning it did take 3 of us to change a fluorescent light tube in the club house. Bob was taking measurements' of our carriages to see if we could make some shorter light ones.|
