Wednesday Night Comps and Invitation Day

Dear All,

Now that the season is well and truely underway I thought I would drop you all a quick e mail.

As Captain I am now starting to get to grips with my duties, it has been a bit of a steep learning curve but we are already into May and the weather is improving, I could say I was living the dream!!!!.

All the competitions are being well attended, which is great for the club and the banter within the clubhouse seems to have carried on from last season. We have tried some new pin positions this year, I hope they have given you all something different to think about.

The Wednesday Comps start this wek on the 7th, so good luck to all that are going to take part. From a personal point I am not going to be able to attend on the evening to open and close the computer so on some occasions it will not be there for you to enter your scores. If the computer is not there for use please will you put your cards in the slot and they will be collected and the scores recorded and circulated. (This may not happen the same day).

Thanks for your understanding on this matter.

Lastly on Saturday 17th May we have the Goan Vase, which is an Invitation day. I am sure most of you know someone who plays golf, so why not invite them up to play your golf course. It is always good to bring someone new to see the course and this is an ideal oppotunity for us all to get people interested, who knows they might like it so much they join.

Thanks everyone for your time and happy hitting.

Iain

Volunteer Working Party

Well the excitement of the Chairman v Captain season opener (5th April 10.00 meet) is almost upon us, but there are a couple of things you need to know about also:

Working Party – on Saturday 12th meet 10.00 To Strim and Rake the Plantation with a view to improving the presentation of the course at the start of the season. Anyone with a power strimmer is encouraged to come along and others plaes come prepared to rake and collect the cut grass.

Match v Tynedale GC – We are due to play a Ladies & Gents match away to Tynedale on Saturday 26th April. The teams comprise six Ladies and six Gents and the Ladies have already filled their allocation! At the moment we need TWO Gents to complete the six man team. Places will be allocated on a first come basis, so if you fancy some fun on Tyne Green e-mail your Captain Iain Thompson – tomma100@btinternet.com

Many thanks for your time, and see you at these events!
