Who wants to play GLOLF this summer?
but if you'd rather play further down south, that's cool too. As long as I can stay round someone's house/be directed to VERY cheap accomodation.
I'm supposed to be playing somewhere round your neck of the woods in August, got a stag do.
As to the location of GLOLF!, I am easy
I'll wait to see if the usual suspects are interested then we can start organising the fuck out of this.
If we do play in Ely, I've modified my kettle so it doesn't quite boil water now. This means that we shouldn't face the trauma of too-hot-tea this time round.
I mentioned before about playing in Swanley and then staying at mine, which shouldn't be too much of an issue. Although we do have wooden floors, which aren't very welcoming. I'm happy to go to yours though. As long as I don't tee off first. Or when anyone is watching me.
so if you're happy to host, I think we should go for Swanley.
As long as I don't get splinters, I'll be ok with wood.
but when can people make it? Cos there is a week in July and various points in August which look tricky...
Or the 2nd August.
I think sometime in July or August would be good. I don't want to be playing the 17th in the dark again.
as long as it's not on a Saturday.
would be good?
are pretty much out for me. A Friday in July would have to be the 4th, 18th or 25th.
Shall we pencil in the 25th?
3 of us seem fairly keen. Any else? ERNIE ELS?
'Its all about GLOLF!'
In principle I love the idea lots.
However, I have to have another bunch of operations this summer, so it depends what state I'm in come July 25th.
I'm just the comic relief anyway.
Whether it's logistically possible is another matter. Me being in south yorkshire, my glolf clubs being in south wales and you lot all being in south england might pose a problem.
You've got over a month to travel to south england via south wales. EASY
yourself to South Wales.
August Bank holiday.
25th ju ly
it's going to cost me about £250 isn't it. brilliant. No wonder i am so poor.
It didn't cost that much for me last time. But that's mainly because I made everyone come and play near me and stay at my house
if it's where i think it is i'm going to cry. I'm scared to google.
Does that make life easier? I refuse to tell Harru where Swanley is.
I'm happy to host, but it was a long ruddy way for the Judge last time.
Harru's just a big whiney whinge-o.
Bloody job-having eejit. He said he was 'easy' up there. Take that how you want.
Murdering dolphins by all accounts.
I'm happy to play wherever, but my preference remains beautiful swanley (wherever that is)
You definitely in, then? That makes 4 of us? Any more? HIYA
I'm booking the 25th July off.
IS THIS GOING AHEAD, YEAH?
You, me and Dupree (Judge B).
And Harru? Anyone else?
I think there's a ballet set there.
GIVE ME A POSTCODE SO I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING
but I don't think I can get the time off work.
See you for the Boxing day spectacular!
Do we require actual glolfing experience?
And clubs and that?
Colonol_k did 'alright' without experience last time. And Miserabli claimed a par (I think) on the hardest hole on the course, despite hating golf with a passion.
I'm in, it's booked, we are go.
More bamos 2nd and 28 action please, thanks
this is definitely happening, right?
ME AND THEE AND WARN? ANYONE ELSE?
THE 2008 COMEDY OPEN WILL TEE OFF AT 1.54PM ON FRIDAY AT BIRCHWOOD PARK, SWANLEY.
Are we meeting there? What time?
Anyway. Meet there, may as well. That makes sense. Shall we say 12ish? Then we can graba bite and maybe hit some balls to warm up if we have time.
...I hope the others are getting some practice in, I don't want to be shown up...
I really suck. Apart from one magic shot a round.
your head down, knees together, turn the wrist over on the sideswing and keep your chin over your left hamstring. That should sort it out
where you hit it, and it bends round to the left on a boomerang trajectory but doesn't actually come back to you because it hits a tree instead?
I do that one a lot.
that actually sounds like a real golf course
You driving or training?
Shall I come and meet you earlier somewhere?
if you meet him at Victoria then I'll join you on the train about ten minutes later at Denmark Hill?
I'll probably hook and miss by a good 10 minutes though.
Will he be the one that looks like he's carrying golf clubs?
I need golf shoes, don't I.
If anyone needs some size 13's, let me know...
to get my toes extended before friday, I'll take them.
cos it'll be you I ring when I'm still on the M25 at 2pm. Cos I don't have anyone elses number. And your voice soothes me when I'm crying
I'm bringing a flask of piping hot tea.
Yes, it is a Tony Hadley flask.
Pour me a cup at 1352 and throw it away for me, would you? Saves my tongue blistering up
That's what my mum always said.
When she was in court for scald-based child abuse.
MOM tattoo to prove I'm sorry?
