To dance the tango, ie properly, both persons must combine well and so, too, the very same requirement is needed to be a winner of a Kempsey Veterans Golf Club 2BBB Stableford competition.
So, on Tuesday of last week, Peter Hatton and Steve Bates virtually "waltzed" their way around the 14-hole course to pile up no fewer than 39 points to get the judges' decision come counting time.
The A-grade combo were two to the good of two of the other rival 15 pairings, namely Milton Riggs and Kevin Hopping and the Mark Townsend-Greg Mayhew duo.
Whilst the minor placegetters were different in grading, the victory by Peter and Steve was even more featured by the fact that their off-line shots would assuredly prove costly. Naturally there weren't any going astray!

Players with much bigger handicaps do benefit most (so 'tis said) so the applause must be louder and it was, believe me.
A victory voucher each for Peter and Steve and this time it was a new Bridgestone each for the minor placegetters, along with four other combinations each with 36 points.
To name the octet with a new ball apiece, the recipients were Chris Hudson-John Inder, Dennis O'Brien-Terry Smith, Peter Campling-Michael Hinchcliffe and Jim Meldrum-Allan Heather.
Individually wise and in a 4-way countback, it was Chris' 32 points earning best-of-the-day performance and the voucher was a worthy return for him because he is, at present, our No. 1 chef.
Hard work it must be satisfying the flock Chris, but the Hudson Burger is as tasty as any, believe you me!
Nearest the pin at the third hole were Hatton (A), Ron Ingall (B) and Mr Riggs (C) and the Alan Macdonald Memorial $100 Hole-In-One, for the second time, failed to go off.
At the eighth hole Graeme Dyet (A) and Barry Pearson (C) were winners of a new ball, too.
Chip-ins for a point in the annual Best & Fairest Award were performed by Peter Mercer, Steve Cameron, Robert Johnston, Hudson, Hatton, Inder and Heather.
Now, Tuesday fellows we are contesting a 14-hole Single Stableford with the back nine dominating and next Tuesday, the last of the month, there is to be a 2-man Ambrose. So please arrange your partner for a 2-step.
Of course any visitors to our Nature's Wonderland are welcome to take part and sound advice is to give the Club a call on 65626291 to book a start and/or cart.
Meanwhile, the course still abounds with large, not so large and baby kangaroos, however, despite looking closely up high there has been not a sighting of any a koala bear.
There's many eucalyptus trees within the Club's bounds and we will keep you all posted on the result of our constant search.
And we are awaiting the return of a pair of owls in a certain paperbark adjoining the 15th tee, as well as the little redheads in the south-west corner. 'Tis Nature's Wonderland we're in eh!
