Chalky

Recommended Posts

I've just reread the original post and I see you golfers are on foot....so buggie is for jock and clubs....and beer? Good luck to you all....I know how I feel after two rounds on the same day so some task.

I always thought Geoff was joking when he reckoned that you show signs of fatigue after two rounds of drinks , Martin?

Come on folks dig deep in those pockets for this noble cause! :thumbup:

These four fine fellows plus their logistical support team (well someboby's gotta carry the bottle opener Jock) are gonna put their highly tunned bodies through hell on a golf course, so they need loads of support.

I've also heard on the grapevine that next year their planning on doing a boat race. From golf shoe shufflers to the cockless fours eh! (I hope I spelt that right :lol: )

Hi Andy

I assume that these press ups are infact finger press ups as apposed to the real McCoy? or how else are you managing to type on a key board at the same time. :g:

Have a word with Kitch he exercises his fingers regularly by removing ring pulls (usually from tins of Fosters!) :lol:

David I think you will find the only thing Andy presses, apart from my patience waiting on him getting in touch, is those scarves he wears to make sure they are perfectly straight, which some may say arguably is a bit of an oxymoron given his care and attention to his appearance. No doubt his famous golf safari suit will be out for this day, pictures will appear within seconds on here if he does. Glasgow's own Lester Tipton as our Andy is known.

I now have my policy and procedures manual along with my Health and Safety manual and correct headwear and footwear to buy per Chuddy Mr Duddleys, the head honcho party leader and Union representative as he keeps reminding me, instructions and obviously beer would contravene said H&S rules, so only I will be allowed to drink it, which should make the four ball (you can guess which two have none) more interesting for Messrs Law, Broughton, Kitchener and Whitmore as their thirst gets worse during day and I merrily hiccup my way through the day in a rally driver stylee on said buggy.

Although I will be dissappointed that due to a combination of weak ankles from years of dancing, war wounds from running up Wigan High Street and fitness levels of a 97 year old I cannot directly compete, I am currently setting up various mediums that hopefully will be broadcast over here on the day to let you know just how bad they are suffering.

So cmon boys and girls, I appreciate we suffer a bit charity overload and salary underload these days, but it is a good cause and if is something you can help with, dig deep. Every little helps as Colin has been told many times over years.

Looking forward to a hard day already......

Thank you Alison for your donation. I know golf isn't everyones cup of tea but it is more about raising money for a very worthy cause.

But it will be a a very long day. If the average 18 holes takes around 4 hours with a 4-6 mile walk that might give you some idea.

We have been told we can tee off anywhere from about 2.30am onwards depending on the weather and have till 10.00pm and we have to play around everyone else on the course so a bit to contend with. But with Jock giving us a combination of support and abuse we should be ok...

I been trying to get people to pay for my jokes for years (even the funny one's). Why don't you tap that mate of yours Kirsty up for a donation there's gotta be some lose change knockin' about in those leather trousers of hers. :wicked::lol:

As I've just taken up golf as a retirement hobby myself, I know that it won't be an "easy" day for the golfers, especially having Tef with them :-) !

I've donated and I'm sure with Jock and Chuddy supporting the event, it will be well managed on the day.

I just wonder if some promoters are now thinking of Northern soul golfing week-enders???!!!***?

Have Fun guys and hope all goes well for you on the day.

:ohmy: 2.30 AM!!!!!! Blimey you'll all be playing with fluorescent balls :lol:

Joking apart, I still don't understand golf (other than the crazy variety :D ) but have worked out how long you guys are likely to be out there :sweatingbullets: so an extra good luck to you all :hatsoff2:

Here's hoping you earn lots of GBP for this deserving cause :thumbsup:

If you want to join in you would be most welcome, with your Leather Trousers on we will walk you just 10 feet in front of the boys and that should keep them going when they are struggling with fatigue.

We would obviously give Colin an extra shot of Bromide in his early morning tea just to make sure no accidents happened when he was teeing off.

:D :D :D

good luck boys - hope someone has organised a lovely picnic for you to enjoy whilst Colin's in a bunker trying to find his ball... I fear cheating of epic proportions

We were in a posh hotel which was very expensive and that was Tef's response to us telling him it was his round! Mind we had to explain the double entendre of round that weekend to all our English compadres that weekend, the bar one seemed to be an alien concept to them................. :g: :g:

Just a week to go before the four intrepid golfers, Kitch, Teff, Colin Law and Andy McWhitmore and the vital support team of Jock and Chuddy aim to complete four rounds of golf in one day for a very worthy cause.

Few more sponsors would be nice, try and break the £2k barrier?

I did notice that the golf shoe sufflers were all refraining from indulging in any alcoholic bearages and fatty foods during the Cleethorpes mayhem, their early morning runs and stretching exercises were a truly insperational sight :thumbup: :thumbup:

With the exception of Jocko that is who claimed his time was better suited to the tactical side of the game as he snuggled down in his deck chair, took a bite of a double egg and bacon butty and continued to read his copy of the sunday sport !!!! :lol:

Give E-bay a miss today folks and donate your money to a great cause :g:

Oh! just remembered a helpful little tip Mr Whitmore

If Kitch beings to suffer the effects of fatigue later in the day and his balls (the golf variety) keep ending up in the rough !

Check the ring tones on your phone and give him a quick blast of William Bell's "I'm Happ'sey ( :wicked::lol: ) that'll pick up his game for sure.

Dave :thumbsup:
