Captain's Newsletter - 4 October 2020

Autumn is definitely upon us what a change in the weather, one day i played in shorts the next day the weather turned and i have been in trousers ever since, i really do not like to see the back of summer and the light nights. Rain has closed the course this weekend i would suspect the course was so dry that the amount of rain we have had over the last few days took time to soak in.

I have some beautiful Christmas cards hand painted by our very talented artist Mandy Unger for sale and all proceeds to go to my charity "Crossroads Care" please see me on Tuesdays/Thursdays if you wish to purchase these, they are very special for 2020.

Two of our lady members, Di Alford and Maureen Martin have had successful operations and are recuperating at home now, we send you our best wishes ladies and hope it will not be too long before we see you at the club.

At the latest Club Committee meeting it was agreed that the Men's and Ladies sections would now adopt payment of competition entry fees via IG which will go live on Monday 2nd November. The senior section at this time are not charging competition fees so therefore will not be adopting this at the moment.

Lin has done a brilliant job of keeping track of what everyone owes over the last three months and the committee are very grateful to her for taking on this task on top of the responsibilities of Competition secretary, this was never intended to be a permanent arrangement. But with no let up on restrictions due to Covid, the alternative for payment of competition fees being paid through IG for the future is the other option.

Ladies, contrary to what you may have heard you do not need a paypal account, you can top up your IG account with a debit or credit card or paypal. The committee are in the process of producing some notes to help but in the mean time do not hesitate to ask myself or Pauline for guidance.

Mens section Charity Day Saturday 10th October sign up for this is open on IG. Ladies it is a 4bbb £20pp all donated to Paul's charity Mind in Mid Herts, lots of prizes to be won 1st, 2nd & 3rd, nearest the pins and longest drives.

Stay Safe All
Ladies Captain
