Groundhog Day - 2nd February

This Friday (02/02/07) sees the annual Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania tradition of Groundhog Day!

Every year Punxsutawney Phil (The Groundhog) emerges at around 7.25am (around 12.25pm UK time) and 'prognosticates' on whether there will be an early spring, or if there will be a prolonged winter. If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

Last year Phil saw his shadow and so there was to be six more weeks of winter!

Visit to find out more about the tradition of Groundhog Day.

Richard Gottfried - Crazy Minigolfer

As of Monday 22nd January 2007 I have been an official member of the British Minigolf Association (BMGA) 2007 Tour!

I have entered the world of Crazy/Mini/Adventure Golf and plan to compete in as many tournaments as possible, including the British Masters and the PHCGC Open, building towards my participation in the event at the pinnacle of the Crazy Golf Calendar - the 2007 World Crazy Golf Championships which will take place in October.

Further information on the British Minigolf Association can be found on the BMGA website.
