Captain's Newsletter - 25 September 2022

This week we are all trying to get our heads around the sudden and quick death of our lovely smiley friend Marion.

On Tuesday 27th September it has been suggested that we flood the course with pink in Marion's memory. If you aren't going to be at Chesfield then honour Marion's memory wherever you may be. We will raise a toast to her in the clubhouse afterwards and those of us who can will toast her in her favourite tipple - lager.

The flags remain at half mast in her memory.

The funeral will be a while yet as there is to be a post mortem and an autopsy

RIP Marion

Wednesday 28th September 6.30 sees the inaugural meeting of the Chesfield Downs Ladies Book Club. Thanks to Pat Ward for organising this. I for one am really looking forward to discussing books with everyone.

Thursday 10th November Ladies AGM after golf in the conservatory. Please let Olive know if you are attending or sending your apologies.

Tuesday 15 November 7 pm Club AGM. All welcome

Hazel would like to let everyone know that due to family commitments Jackie S has reluctantly withdrawn from Vice Captaincy next year. Hazel is pleased to announce that Olive has agreed to be her Vice Captain for 2023.

Reminder that entry into a competition with food afterwards is one price whether or not you stay for the food. Withdrawal from the comp within the week means that we still have to pay for food so payment will not be refunded.
