WEDNESDAY CLUB CHAMPION

I have been trying to come up with a concept for our Wednesday Club Champion, that will give everyone an opportunity to actually win the event, even  the players that are unable to play every week.   We have Meat on Shakespeare as the sponsor for the Wednesday Club Champion, so thanks to Steve Rettke for your sponsorship.

We will have a Monthly Medal each month, but it will take in all Wednesday competitions for that month. The winner of the monthly medal will be  the player with the best stableford score for that month.  That player will receive a $50 Crokers fuel voucher.  Then in November we will have a Medals of Medals play off with all winners of the Wednesday Monthly Medals throughout the year and the winner of that will receive a $500 voucher.   This way most players will get at least one opportunity to play one Wednesday a month and can still enter into the Wednesday monthly medal comp.   So scores will start fresh every month, starting with yesterdays scores.   The  running scores as well as the winner for each month will be posted on this site, on Facebook, as well as on the wall near the card scanning machine.  We will trial it and see how it all works.
