Senior Moments Obituary
Message from Vic Ettie who has lost a Chicken!
“RIP Gloria – Past Captain Vic is sad to announce the passing of his elderly chicken Gloria – she passed away peacefully on Sunday 20th March having given many years good service. She was a fine bird and will be greatly missed. Scrambled eggs will not taste quite as good without her contribution”.
Denny Carter has respectfully recorded the event.
Sympathy cards have been dropping through the Editors letter box from several saddened Senior Men’s Members since Gloria’s passing

Appleby Railway Station, Cumbria
You may be unaware that one of our Senior Men’s Section Members owns his own railway station! He is not often seen at our Wednesday roll ups as he is on train driver duties.
During one of his train spotting trips out and about our cartoonist, Denny Carter, has spotted him driving a train.
If you are in the Cumbria area Geoff Appleby will be only too pleased to give you a 1st class lift to Corhampton Railway Station.

Some of our Senior Men’s Members may be unaware that this year is a first in our Section’s history.
2023 is the first year that we have as our Captain the son of a previous Captain from 1998 when Ray Goode was our Seniors Captain and this year we have Stuart Goode, his son, as our Captain. (When he was younger Ray took part in power boat racing.)
This historical regeneration in our Section has been captured by our cartoonist Denny Carter (Dr Who Style)

Two of our members Martin and Dave were visiting Portugal recently and thought they would try out the course at Pura Ficção which includes the largest sand trap in the world called Nunca Sera, it rises 72 feet (22 metres) on the approach to the 165m par-three 13th hole .
Thanks to “Senior Moments” featuring it last month they knew they should hire the special buggy from the course professional.
