Update from the Captain

Captains Log Star Date March 2018

Shout, shout, up with your song
Cry with the wind, for dawn is breaking
March, march, swing you along
Wide blows our banner, and hope is waking

The continuing tree work around the course is progressing nicely and opening up views that would not be out of place on picture post cards.
Once again, last month and the beginning of this, we found ourselves enduring the elements of the golfing gods. the weather has hindered many of us from participating in our favourite pass time, although some hardy souls do venture out.
As the weather hopefully does improve and golf starts to take centre stage, I would just like to remind everybody, that course etiquette and pace of play come with the territory.
And with that in mind and as the new season approaches, the summer competition entry sheets are now available for sign ups, as well as our own competitions, all sections have started preparing for their forth coming fixtures and knockouts, I would just like to take this opportunity to send you all my best wishes for the coming season, whether you are taking part or supporting our great club and I look forward to getting to as many of the matches and events as possible.
Steve Ward now has in stock various items of logo’d Bishopswood apparel in the Pro Shop, please go and take a look.
Now onto some light hearted social events that have taken place or will shortly take place since I wrote my last report.
During a dry spell of weather, on a Saturday afternoon, we were able to complete one of our fun events that we are arranging throughout the year, this was a nine hole greensomes competition to celebrate the Chinese New Year, the year of the dog, the field was made up of individuals from a cross section of the clubs membership (ladies, gents and seniors) and with varying degrees of handicaps, the eventual winners were Mr Keith Dennis and Mr David Williams winning bottles of Chinese wine sourced by our club secretary, well done to all who made this a great afternoon.
We held our monthly quiz evening recently, this once again was well attended, and I do thank you all for coming out and exercising your minds.
The Port and Cheese evening, organised at the golf club, was a great success, it was a very close and personal affair, with various Ports and Cheeses being consumed by all who attended. And afterwards it was agreed by all, to follow up this event with a pie and ale night within the next few months, and hopefully arrange a cocktail evening going into the summer months, I will keep you all informed
The Valentines evening held at the golf club was attended by my Vice Captain Mr Roy Ward and his lovely wife Gill, I have received glowing reports back about the evening from all who attended.
Finally I have no guilt in self-promoting my upcoming Vinyl Revival Evening, this will be held on Saturday 14th April 2018, where you will enjoy a three course meal and be entertained live by Monty’s Boogie Nights, reliving all the greatest hits of the 70’s, names for tickets should be left behind the bar and I will come and find you.
Many thanks for taking time out to read this report
