      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically.

The telly was switched on with it on all day, so I caught some of it as I was walking by, then got sucked in to the second half of the afternoon session!  I'm not a golf fan by any means, and would normally actively avoid it, but there's something about the Ryder Cup and the way it's played and scored that makes it irresistible. :D

We had golf on all Saturday and all yesterday.....awesome golf from our guys and so chuffed they managed the win on home turf. I imagine some sore heads today.

It couldn't possibly be as tense and exciting as Medinah, but it was still great :D

 

I was sad to hear Phil Mickelson criticising Tom Watson as soon as it had finished.  Even though he was doing it indirectly, it still seemed pretty bad.  Something must've happened behind the scenes that resulted in him being left out on Saturday :shrug:

Yeh...I used to like him but it wasn't called for and should have been kept from public. Tom Watson is a lovely guy and maybe he didn't do things right for some, but if you are part of a team with a captain  you have to respect his decision. Think his nose is just out of joint because the lost again. We are certainly doing something right with organisation etc and our choice of captains.
