Captain's Newsletter - 20 June 2021

Rain, rain and more rain! Lets hope this week brings back the sunshine and stays with us particularly for next weekend as 30 of us travel to Staverton Park for our ‘Away Weekend. Nikki and Nicola have an abundance of fun planned along with some golf, personally I can’t wait. Tuesday Club on 29th June will go ahead as planned for those of you who wish to play '5 clubs and a putter' further details on IG.

Charity Day 15th July

This years charity day will be a little different from those we have been used to in the past. There was a suggestion to postpone it to another date when restrictions might be lifted, with this in mind the ladies committee met to reassess. It was decided, unanimously, to go ahead with 15th July as so many plans had already been put in place. Therefore, we ask for your cooperation in helping us to make the day a success, whilst assisting us to keep the running as smooth as possible under the present circumstances. There will still be our two course meal, but it will be on a rolling basis, we would appreciate when you have finished dining to move swiftly into the bar area where coffee and mints will be served. Unfortunately, no presentation of prizes will be possible but winners will be congratulated personally and asked to collect their prize from the presentation table. We still aim to have all our stalls in the bar area prior to the competition, so bring along all your unspent cash and we will help you to give it to a good cause whilst having fun. Information will be on the notice board this week allocating our volunteers their tasks. Bottles and 'bric a brac' items for raffles will be gratefully accepted.
