LX CLUB Lakes Tour
15th – 17th June 2012
Hockey and Hog Roast.
While the rest of the country was complaining about the wet weather, Cumbria just accepted it as the norm and so 16 players and their partners made, what was for many, a long trip to Cockermouth.
Golfers (Hazell and Mack), walkers (Fripp and Tubb) and local boy (Dures) arrived Thursday with the majority arriving Friday for dinner at the Trout.
Dot Patton encouraged and cajoled the ladies to join her on a walk the next morning (to include coffee and possibly lunch at the Kirkstile Inn) and two brave ladies Kay (I’m game for anything) Hazell and Diane Durrans joined Dot in wet and windy conditions to walk around Loweswater. Unfortunately the coffee was abandoned this year as the three were in need of drying off!
