Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Insights from the campaign trail

The election is almost here. Hooray. It’s time we got down with Elvis Presley’s suggestion of ‘A little less conversation, a little more action, please.’ I’m a big fan of action. I’ve been at this for 14 months, and as a writer who holds the ear of the community each week I’ve been cognizant not to turn this into a hostage situation. For twenty years I’ve talked about politics and social issues and shared insights into my personal experiences, but this is one journey where I’ve had to keep you locked out.

Ray Griffiths collected the win after a countback put him ahead of Rex Nixon at last week’s nine-hole Stableford, which was also the fifth round of the Point Score Championship for the Teven Golf Club’s men’s championship.

Griffiths and Nixon ended the day on 21 points.

Ball run down: Chris Gee 20, John Selwood 19, Robert Tillman 19, Greg Unwin 18, Geoff Colnan 18, Bill Wayte 18, Ian Coochiroff 18.

NTPs: fourth Chris Gee; eigth Bill Wayte (within a flag length).
Putting: Robert Tillman (11 putts).

Next game is this Saturday July 29: a nine-hole Stableford plus two-man aggregate Stableford – this will also be the sixth and final round of the Pointscore Championship (6.15am start for a 6.30am shotgun tee off).
