I trust you're all looking forward to the annual Training Centre golf outing on Saturday and have your travel arrangements fully in hand. As a reminder, the first tee time is 11:00am and it's always prudent to get to the course a good hour beforehand to settle up your bets with the bookie and avoid the indignation of having your bacon roll eaten by me. If you're getting the train, a plentiful supply of taxis are usually available at Leuchars station to transport you the short distance to the course. However, if this turns out not to be the case, call or text me and I'll wipe the last crumbs of your breakfast off my lips and come and collect you. You're welcome.

For those of you with golf spreadsheets to update - and let's face it, who doesn't - the full* cost of your outing on Saturday will be £50.00 covering green fees, catering and prize fund donation. At £10.00 cheaper than last year, I'm sure you'll agree this represents excellent value.



*Does not include train fares, taxi fares, "choo-choo" alcohol, personal biscuit and continental cheese platters, discretionary petrol contribution for drivers, betting stakes, waitress tips, Scotrail fines, impulse flights to Amsterdam, emergency hotel rooms, late night taxis, late night buses, late night trains, late night h00kers, police bribes, tattoo removal, reconstructive surgery, firearms, tiger tranquilizer...
