This weekend we headed down to Croyde for the Coalie Tour 2010. Here's the highly tuned athletes of the Coal Exchange Football Team discussing tactics on the long drive to Cider country. Sam, Pat, James, Dunc, Jimmer, Jez. We turned off the main road onto the moors near Tiverton and stopped at the Stags in Rackenford. I think we probably doubled their nights takings! Pat made sure he got a receipt?!?!
SATURDAY SURFING AND GOLF : Derek had everyone up at the crack of dawn for a sumptuous breakfast before heading out surfing. Jez, Simon, Chalkie, Geoff, Del and Tim..
Surfing on Putsborough beach. Derek leading the stretches. Some stretching more enthusiastically than others.
The surf dudes. Chalkie, Dunc, Sam(!), Jez, Pat, Derek (on his hands), James, Jimmer, Simon, Geoff...
Eager surfers off to look for the Big One!
Some pretty hefty waves....knarly dude.
In the afternoon we played golf at the Portsmore Golf Club in Barnstable on their par 3 nine hole course. Here's Tim lining up for one his 'warm-up' shots.
Danny Fellows Black and White Army....shhh!
Dunc putting for par on the 220 yard par 3 7th hole.
The Coalie Ryder Cup Team...Sam, James, Tim, Pat, Geoff, Dunc, Chalkie, Danny, Simon, (Derek - behind the camera).
And the winners. Sam won the wooden spoon with a score of 64. Chalkie won the Coalie Hack Cup with 38...
Back at Warcombe Farm. Our beautiful chalet maids, Del and Tim, cooked up a fantastic Chilli and Thai curry...
SUNDAY FOOTBALL : Today, after another morning surf, we played a football match against the Croyde Surfer Boyz. The Coalie FC : Back Row - Sam, Jimmer, Dunc, Tim, Geoff, Chalkie, Danny. Front Row - James, Simon, Derek, Pat, Jez.
It was a tough game and we scored first with a diving header from Geoff. Dunc and Simon race one of the Surfer Boyz to the ball...
"We all dreaming of a team of Wedderburns" (to the tune of Yellow Submarine)...
At half-time it was 1v1. Joe the ref tells Derek he might get booked for the dodgy beard in the second half....and he did.
Jez in determined mood battling for the ball (or does he need the loo?)
Surfer Boyz score from a corner. The final score is 4v2 to the Croyde Surfer Boyz.
