    The abandoned four

    The remaining four - me, LIG, Leftie and full throttle - will be assembling at Gainsborough this coming Sunday for the empty shell that used to be the Gainsborough 8 v The Scum. While we are there, we will look at the possibility of resurrecting the original idea of a meet of 8 players in the 2 flats with 2 nights DBB and 4 rounds on the two courses around this time next year for around 170. Register your interest on this thread.

    The title of The Scum applied to the 8 interlopers who were billeted in a local hotel and conspired to take the Gainsborough 8 to the cleaners. We are reverting to the original idea of 8 urbane and sophisticated gentlemen enjoying a few days in excellent company - no scum to be seen.

    No Scum, no scam either.

    The original Flat U vs Flat D was a bit too tame as well so now it's... The Upper Class Toffs vs The Down an' Outers.
    Guess which one we are, Jim. Just need some down and outs to sign up!

    It will run. We can get 8 together. By then I might need to have the downstairs flat.

    It would be rude not to, I suppose.
    Don't take life so seriously. No-one gets out alive.

    Will be happy to organise next year's event if I make it through this year's trip unscathed.

    I'd be interested, I'm just south of Lincoln so only half an hour up the road for me.

    You're talking about next year, right?

    Will start a new thread in a week or two if I survive this year.
