I am delighted to invite you to come and celebrate the formal opening of our 'transformed' Pavilion and the No.2 green, a great start to 2018.
The pavilion transformation is nearing completion and it will provide all members and visitors with much better facilities. You will be truly amazed at the outcome.
In order for as many members as possible to attend, we are having two opening celebrations and both will be followed by a Round Robin on No.2 green, weather permitting, for those who wish to play.
Soup and snacks are planned at 1.00pm on both Tuesday, 9th Jan and Saturday, 13th Jan.

The end of month EVENT will be a Handicap Singles Competition which will run in place of the usual Round Robin on the main green. This competition is open to all members, male, female, experienced or beginner, with the usual handicap system operating. I hope to run a reserve competition for first round losers so that everyone will get at least two games. Our Cup/Award specialist Ted is away on holiday so the winner might have to wait for that, but hopefully we can run to a cash prize for the finalists of the Main and Reserve competition. The comp will start as soon after 12:30 p.m. as I can manage.
The Club has decided to provide sandwiches and cake with the usual tea/coffee for all competitors and increase the entry fee to £4 per person.
I am hoping to use number one green only as number two green is not suitable for competition, but this will mean a shorter game (probably eleven up plus/minus handicap) in the preliminary matches and first round of the competition and throughout the reserve comp.

The last club event of the year is on Tuesday 11 December at 11.00am for mince pies with
coffee/tea/mulled wine. We do hope for a good turnout.
This is primarily a social event with a short Chairman's Question Time session where you will be
able to say what you wish and I'll answer any of your questions about the club. It's especially suited
to our newer members.... and there's nothing off limits.
