Captain's Log - 27 May 2015

Summer is not far away so it’s time to find those shorts and sleeveless tee shirts that have been hibernating at the back of the wardrobe. You might not need them just yet but it’s best to be prepared!

Our Spring Meeting, which is the start of the social calendar, was held on May 14th. The bad weather forecast caused it to be only a 9 hole competition but it meant that we didn’t get too wet! Joel and his staff provided us with an excellent meal of chicken in a mushroom sauce with a choice of desserts. The apple crumble was especially popular – too popular as it ran out!

Congratulations to the winners on the day and to everyone who collected cups and trophies. For many the biggest excitement was looking underneath their chair for a raffle ticket, which meant winning the lovely plant on the table! A big thank you to the committee and other volunteers for their hard work.

On Sunday 24th May we played for the Ken Bird Tankard. This was a very enjoyable game played in good spirit between all four sections. The results were close with only 4 points between all the teams. In spite of a magnificent effort by our team – Pauline, Lin, Julie, Annette, Mandy and Pat – we didn’t win. The Men were again victorious.

The next big event is our Charity Day on Thursday 18th June. This is in aid of two local charities, Tilehouse Counselling which is based in Hitchin and Carers in Hertfordshire. I hope the weather will be kind to us. A lot of hard work goes into organising the day and we want everyone to have a great time and of course spend money whilst doing so. We still need bottles for the tombola and sponsors for holes and are very grateful for any donations. If you are unable to play, you are welcome to come just for lunch. If you are away then perhaps you could support by donating something or by buying raffle tickets.

Thank you
Jean Ray
