EDITORS NOTE - LUCKY NUMBER 13
The 13th hole at Leeuwkop Golf Club (where we are having our golf day this year) has always been my Achilles heel on this course. When I last played there, the sight of the water over which I was expected to drive the golf ball automatically had my fingers twitching with sheer apprehension. Needless to say I topped the poor thing and it rolled like a bowling ball through the reeds on the near side of the dam. This was inevitably met by the merciless laughter of my fellow players who stood to benefit from a round of drinks at my expense for my failing to make it past the ladies tee off point.
But I cannot blame the hole and the unlucky reputation of the number after which it is named. The scene described above is not uncommon when I am on the course.
It is our first issue of 2013. Still very much a new year and I hope all our readers will defy the notion of an unlucky number 13 and make this year memorable for the right reasons. Still on numbers, this is our tenth issue and it is only with your support that we have achieved this landmark.
