Melbourne Cup Day 2007

Melbourne Cup Day – a public holiday. Eggs and I joined Steph’s family to visit her 3rd uncle (Denis) at the St Vincent’s Private Hospital. He had had his thyroid gland removed yesterday and will stay one more night to take some tests.

Eddie, James, Aaron, Justin, Eggz, Steph and I went for a round of mini-golf. With 7 of us, it took us about 1.5 hours to complete the 18holes. I somehow managed to finish with 58 strokes off a par of 56. Some memorable moments was when, at TWO holes, Justin scored a hole-in-one. During each time, his ball narrowly missed the hole, only to bounce back from a wall and then finally sink. Also, Stephberry somehow completed one of the holes in 2 strokes while others took at least four. Her ball jumped off course, bounced off some rocks and walls, and landed a mere 2 feet from the hole. This mini-golf was located near my place in Chirnside Park and the course we did was all indoors. It had two storeys, so there were holes where the ball was sucked up by pump and travelled along rails and wall-cavities. Even the last hole had a smart retrieval system where the ball was sucked through a vacuum and simply taken back to the kiosk some 10m away and dumped into a basket.
