This was our annual road trip to Mae Moh golf course in Lampang to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. There were 8 Santiburi members and 3 Friends (Jockey John, Jim and newcomer Neil). Most took their wives and all went to Lampang on Tuesday. The first night we ate at our usual dining place — The Riverside. There certainly wasn’t anything really wrong with the venue however it decided by the wives that we go somewhere else on Wednesday night. They organized a bus that took us to Pla Pow Pak Sot 3 (translation “Grilled Fish Fresh Veggies #3”), a place with only a Thai menu on the other side of the river. The food was much better and the place wasn’t noisy at all. Good job ladies.
The golf course was in good shape. It has changed since last year as a part of the green on hole #12 had eroded into the mine and is now closed. What was #13 and now #12 was lengthened a bit and is now a par 5. The short par 3 at the end (#19) is now #18. Therefore there are now 5 par 3’s, 8 par 4’s and 5 par 5’s. We played from the white tees and as expected most everyone had a difficult time. Putting could be a real challenge, due to extremely fast and undulating greens.
- Winner: (Day 1) Paul (37 pts) followed by Young and Graham (33 pts)
- Winner: (Day 2) Jim (37 Pts) followed by Egbert (34 pts)
- Hole 4: (Day 1) Leo, (Day 2) Paul

The winner of “The Big Cock”, a prize donated last year by Graham is Paul with a combined total of 70 points. (FHH) Jim just missed with 69 points.
Leo gave everyone a small bottle of a new liquor that he discovered on a recent road trip. It looks like, smells like and tastes like Barcardi called “40+”. Same strength and no hangovers! He also commended Commissioner Graham for making the big decisions when necessary and presented Graham with a picture for his wall. Very funny!
The number of Santiburi Members has grown from 8 three years ago to the present total of 16. Overall the group camaraderie is great and hopefully we can grow even more over the next year.
