Captain's Newsletter - 29 Oct 2018

Looks like some colder weather has now arrived as the clocks go back!

On Tuesday we had the presentation of the prizes for the Summer Stableford Competition. Unfortunately not all the winners were able to be there and enjoy tea and cake but congratulations to all the winners - Division 1, Vicky with Hazel as the Runner up, Division 2, Anne with Lesley as Runner Up and Division 3, Maggie, with Katy the Runner Up. I have your prizes and hope you will be able to pick them up at the AGM this week.



Congratulations to Pat Ward who won the qualifier on Thursday with a nett 67 and a great handicap cut as a result. It's been coming Pat so well done. Pat along with 7 others will qualify to play for the new 'Faircliff Winter Scratch Cup' (same format as before) whilst the next 8 finishers will play for the Winter Handicap Cup. The draw will be published in the next couple of weeks.

The AGM is on Thursday this week (1st Nov) at 7pm. Wine and nibbles will be available so come in good time. If you haven't yet signed the sheet don't worry you can still come on the night. There are lots of end of season prizes to award and Margaret will be introducing her new committee members. I look forward to seeing you all then.

The Pearson squad will be having their first 'Matchplay Tuesday' this week as their matches begin on Nov 7th with a match at home against Manor of Groves. The plan is to run a Matchplay Tuesday once a month using the early tee times for members of the matchplay squads. However, this will in no way affect the usual Tuesday Fun competition. We will publish the future dates well in advance and should you have any concerns then please talk to a member of the committee.

Jo Oliver is still running her Monday/Wednesday clinics, open to all. It is a great way to keep your swing in check and tweak those bad habits. Please sign up on the board. In addition I am hoping that Jo will run some squad clinics in due course too.

There are several events to sign up for on the board in the changing room, rather than on the computer, as follows

8th November - The Hattersley Cup - Captain v Vice Captain team - Margaret and I will pick the teams next week.

22 November - Winter Invitation 9 holes and lunch - we already have a number of guests signed in so please see the board for all details, sign up and bring your friends!

25 November (Sunday) Ladies v Men. We have given priority to our weekend ladies here but it is open to all and you will have courtesy of the course that day if you are only a 5 day member.

Finally, social sec Jackie has put the details up of a Christmas shopping day out to Ely Cathedral market on Friday November 16th. Details and costs are on the board. Please email Jackie if you would like to go.
