Chiang Mai Industry Council arranged a Mothers Day Golf Competition at Lanna Golf Course, with attractive prizes for selected holes in one. A Honda Wave motorcycle was the prize for a hole in one at the fourth, a Harley Davidson motorcycle for the eighth, a Rolex for the tenth and Nissan Neo car for the sixteenth hole.

The day long competition at the Lanna Golf Course was held in perfect weather. In the evening, the prize presentation was held at the Lanna Golf Course’s Club House.

Team champions were the “Sandy” team including Sandy Kittisri, Wanchai Limthanaporn, Bancha Kittirungsi, Ittipol and Siripaiboon. The team received a trophy presented in the name of PM Thaksin Shinawatra. The top score trophy, presented in the name of Phuying Wiriya Chjawakul, went to Path Pornchuen with a score of 35-35-70.

Perhaps next time it will be that hole in one.

In the A flight, Chawalit Achai was the winner of the low gross with 37-34-71 while Prajim Wuthanunt won the low net with 37-38-75.

For the B flight, Supatchara Wongsathit, won the low gross with 40-36-76 and Chaloemporn Kanchana scored the low net with 39-38-77.

Despite all the incentives, there were no holes in one!


Proud day for junior cricketers

Linda Buck

On Saturday, August 14, each boy who had been sponsored during the Chiang Mai Sixes was presented with his full BDM cricket kit. It was like 18 boys being given birthday presents all at once!

The future Thailand cricketers. A helping hand brings many big Thai smiles from the youngsters.

This is the first time that any of the boys have owned their own cricket equipment. Up until now they have played with two bats, which meant they had to go into bat dependant on height!

The generosity of the sponsors has meant that these boys now own their own kit and will be coached twice a week for one year. The bigheartedness of one particular sponsor, Paul Clayton of the Bear’s Den, knows no bounds. Not only has he put together a website for our boys, but he purchased the domain name to enable us to get up and running!

Wing 41 kicks out Media

High-flying Wing 41 wins 6-1

Staff reporters

The Mass Media and Wing 41 seniors played at the Wing 41 field on August 11. Billed as a ‘friendly’ game, the final score showed that it was more of a rout than much else.

The Wing 41 senior team led by Group Cap Surin Moonla, in blue No 23 (centre), and Mass Media members pose before the friendly match.

By half time, the Wing 41 team, led by Group Captain Surin Moonla, had scored three goals, while the scribes were still goal-less.

Fortunes reversed slightly in the second half when the Chiangmai Mail representative scored a goal for the Mass Media team, when Poramat took the corner with a beautiful cross and Phitsanu Thepthong of the Chiangmai Mail was able to get the ball into the net.

However, the Wing 41 team was much superior and slammed another three goals home to leave the final scores as 6-1.
