Phil Cordingley played Jim Collins on Tuesday morning. Luckily, it did not hail or snow! The sun came out to welcome our guest in perfect English tradition! Just missed a warm cup of tea.
Jim sent a very nice email to the committee and formally extended an invitation to our members to play on their NY green in Central Park. So if you ever are in NY, I will send you Jim’s email. Jim says “I know our members would look very forward to “international” play”.
I had a brief demonstration in “swishing” the lawn which is necessary to do if you start playing at PH at 9am:
Get the yellow stick from the cupboard, extend it, but not too much, and sway the rod over the lawn in a gentle manner back and forth as if watering the lawn. Do cover the whole lawn, the process should not take more than 5 minutes.
