THE CALIFORNIA TOUR - 2003
With the sleep takin' the divil of a toll on the well bein' of the Wild Drivers, the boys duly slipped into Reno after a hard day's flyin' from the UK to be met by Frisco Pete, who ferried the boys to the condo in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe. What a sight greeted the boys the following morn! Snow covered hills, with blue sky and the lake, shimmerin' in the sunshine - all a moile above the sea level. And so the week began, with great golf - Jim & Simon fiddlin' the andicaps and the boys slicin' & hookin' in an endeavour to git the ball rollin' down the fairways. Golf carts with water supplies on board, golf tees on board, & a GPS system to complicate things! Barbeques at the condo on the balcony, playin' cards in readiness for the casinos, drinkie poos -well OK - Budweisers then! No proper Guinness in this part o' the world, where people go to bed at 8.00pm. The Wild Drivers didn't Oi can tell yers that now! But would yers spend a minute or two and look in awe at the photographs! Would yers just take a look at us an' where we played! Arn't yers just taken with it? And look at those idiots with the green hat on. You know, if yer lose on the day, yer have to wear that hat when yer tee off the next day. An yer know somethin'? It concentrates the mind, an' makes yer try harder! Anyhows - the California economy did very well out of the Wild Drivers tour, Oi can tell yer that. It was a tour to be remembered for its gloriousness and beautifulness, and Philly the Bat was hittin' the ball too flippin' far by the end of the week. Well fans - its lookin' like it could be Scotland next year - watch out fer more details. An' thanks to yers all for your unstintin' support over the years..............
