Update from the Captain

Captains Log Star Date December 2017
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good

A HUGE thank you to all the members who braved the cold the other night to attend the AGM, and to those of you who did not venture out or were away, you were sorely missed.
My abiding memory of the evening, which will always stay with me, was just after I had been presented with my jacket and tie, and just prior to my inaugural speech, I took a split second to survey the room, and I was greeted by so many happy smiling faces, at that moment in time I knew I was safe in the heart of my Bishopswood family and the emotions started to well up inside of me, so I stepped back and took a calming mouthful of relaxant (beer to you and me), and then I started my speech (many thanks to Bob Mitchell for a few tweaks here and there).
For those of you who could not work out the two gentlemen in my speech who conducted my interview and who are ultimately responsible for me being your new club captain, one is your ex president Mr Martin Smith, and the other Mr Keith Rosier vice captain at the time, if you need to blame anyone, blame them, I never will.
As most of you are aware Christmas is fast approaching, the weather has turned bitterly cold, and the Christmas trees have gone up in the club house ( I am still available for the switching on of the lights).
The course is still in great shape and condition, this is all down to Lee and Pete and their tireless dedication and effort.
As mentioned by Colin at the AGM several trees have been removed from the course, opening up some fairways and thinning out the copse, this is an ongoing course maintenance programme.
The call up sign on the 8th has now been placed adjacent to the tee, so hopefully everyone will now realise the 8th is a call up hole.
I will endeavour to keep you all up to date, with all things Bishopswood, with that in mind, please see below.
