On Sunday 23rd October the Belton Park mixed team held their end of season AM AM. There was a good turnout of 32 players who went round the Brownlow course in eight drawn teams of 4. The weather was cool but with sunny intervals. The course was as always in great condition and the trees were showing spectacular autumnal colours.
Lady Captain Sheila Mason’s team started play. Scoring was good and only one point separated each of the first four teams.
After the competition the players had an excellent meal .They were then entertained by magician and member John Taylor who baffled the players with his ability to predict through reading the mind.
