The Relative Pairs Shield, 4BBB Stableford, usually draws a good number  of contenders but the conditions, very cold, steady drizzle and gusting winds from the N/NW saw many fair weather golfers decide to stay at home.  However, despite the tough conditions quite a good field, relatives and other, took to the course.   Players teed off with steady drizzle for the first few holes and  a strong wind from the Nth.  Over the remainder of the front nine waterproofs came on and off   and the odd umbrella went up.  The wind moved to the NW and there were two heavy showers so, with the wind, the rain and the soft fairways it was a tough day to be  out o the  course.   However, one pair  did not seem to  be affected by any of the challenging conditions.  It was also great to welcome back Dave Richardson, returning to golf after shoulder surgery.  On a  hard day to be hitting a little white ball abroad the park the results were;
