…Which reminds me — to remind you — to think about ski outfit bargains now on sale. Here’s some ideas from Bansko’s pistes last season: https://banskoblog.com/bansko-ski-fashion/.

Oh… and please remember: the non handicap tournament this Sunday 9th August. A perfect chance for less than proficient golfers to sample the world class Ian Woosnam signature course. Price 90 Leva.
