Captain's Newsletter - 3 July 2022

Oh my goodness I can't believe I am half way through my captaincy. I have enjoyed the first half - let's hope the second half is as rewarding

My Charity Day has raised £3774.70 p so far. Thank you so much for your generosity

What a fantastic weekend we had at Belton Woods. Nikki and Nicola pulled out all the stops to make their final weekend memorable.

The winners of the inaugural Pauline Humphrey Plate were :-

Congratulations to Caroline K, Julie Pa, Rosie and Linda A.

The task for the teams was to take the theme " royal" and do with it what you will

Here are the results - I don't have photos of all the teams so please let me have any you may have on your phones or cameras

Australia is a commonwealth country







Royal mail, complete with royal mint (humbugs) and parcel addressed to Tower of London with (reputedly) Crown Jewels






Australia was a popular theme







The Queen's jockeys with their trainer








Emulating the Queen complete with handbags - guess what is in the handbags???








The whole group








There are many more incriminating photos but "what happens on tour stays on tour"

Dates for next year are 25th - 27th June venue TBD.  Rosie and Olive take over the reins. Looking forward to experiencing their take on the weekend

The mens' Charity Day is Saturday 16th July 8.15 shotgun start. Ladies are invited to play. Team Alliance £25 for members, £35 for guest. Speak to Phil Tovey if you would like to play

An appeal from JonJo - there were numerous pitch marks on the par 3s this weekend. Even if you didn't make a pitch mark if everyone repairs a pitch mark it will help the green recovery enormously

There are good second hand golf clothes hanging in the ladies locker room. If you would like to buy any of the items then please do and put the money into the ladies account ( same account as above) or cash in the black box

There will be scones after the 2nd round of the club championship on Thursday. If you are playing but not staying please let me know, if you are not playing but coming up for the presentation please let me know. Kitchen needs numbers by Tuesday.
