Tim, Cathy and Mike Roads presenting the "Yoda" Trophy to Keith Reid, with Cap'n Con officiating.
Cathy's words whilst presenting the Trophy honouring her late husband.-
"Mike, Tim and I are delighted to be here to mark the inaugral presentation of the Yoda Trophy.
Terry would have been over the moon to know the Pirates have acknowledged him in this way. Also the timing is spot on, with it being Terry's birthday yesterday.
We all hear much talk from clubs of all kind that promote their commitment to their members. Well you guys just get on with it, as has been seen over many years.
Terry loved the Pirates and their unconditional acceptance and regard for their members is a hallmark of the club. As always this went with a good dose of banter which generally saw Terry come home from golf with a big smile on his face.
Mike, Tim and I will be eternally grateful to the Pirates for contributing so much to Terry's happiness and well being over the years and wish you all great success on and off the course."

KNOW THE RULE
Know the rule is the Pirates bonus section. Each week I will include a rule as a refresher; it never hurts to remind ourselves of the guidelines we play by.
When Ball or Ball-Marker Moves on Putting Green
There are two specific Rules for a ball or ball-marker that moves on the putting green.
(1) No Penalty for Accidentally Causing Ball to Move. There is no penalty if the player, opponent or another player in stroke play accidentally moves the player’s ball or ball-marker on the putting green.
The player must:
• Replace the ball on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2), or
• Place a ball-marker to mark that original spot.
Exception – Ball Must Be Played as It Lies When Ball Begins to Move During Backswing or Stroke and Stroke Is Made (see Rule 9.1b).
If the player or opponent deliberately lifts the player’s ball or ball-marker on the putting green, see Rule 9.4 or Rule 9.5 to find out if there is a penalty.
(2) When to Replace Ball Moved by Natural Forces. If natural forces cause a player’s ball on the putting green to move, where the player must play from next depends on whether the ball had already been lifted and replaced on its original spot:
• Ball Already Lifted and Replaced. The ball must be replaced on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2), even though it was moved by natural forces and not
by the player, the opponent or an outside influence (see Rule 9.3, Exception).
• Ball Not Already Lifted and Replaced. The ball must be played from its new spot (see Rule 9.3).
