Last weekend at The Barge the Golf Society held its Captain’s Day (above).

They played at five star Oulton Hall, Leeds, and it included their only female member of the team, Charlie Marsh.

“It was a great day out and some good and bad golf was played,” joked landlord Julian Hadala.

On the day the winner was Keith Wells and the best pants was awarded to Ron Mawbey. They then held a presentation in the evening at The Great Wall, Brighouse, and after the meal they celebrated with drinks at the Barge.

The Year’s Order of Merit was awarded to John McEwan.

The players between them also raised £100 towards the Ruby Hunt fund, which is the current charity the Barge is supporting.

At the weekend regular at the pub Darren Martin, known as Toad to his friends, completed his 100-mile bike ride.

He set off from the Barge and cycled to Goole train station and then returned back to the Barge after taking photographic evidence.

It took him a total of five hours and 26 minutes to complete and when you add his sponsorship money to the funds already raised by the Golf Society, they are looking at around £500 to put towards Ruby’s playhouse.

Julian and Michelle’s son Darrell is also carrying out a sponsored slim but that started with Brighouse Town’s season, where he is kitman, and will finish at the end of the 2013/2014 football season.

Tonight at the Barge the weekly jam session is with Dean from the band The Trees.

On Friday they have Salah Sounds and Saturday should be another packed house as Blood Sweat and Beers come to the pub.

Plus all the top sporting action will be shown.
