Well here we are at the end of another very busy summer golf season, and now with preferred lies in place and the leaves falling, it must mean the Autumn/Winter season is underway.

Firstly, on your behalf, I must thank all the section heads who have worked tirelessly to ensure that club matches and competitions take place in a professional and efficient manner. So many thanks to-: Jenny Lycett, Bob Lycett, David G Williams, Martin Smith, Malcolm Boreham and of course Club Captain Richard Peatman. I am sure you will personally thank the organisers of your various roll ups and other groups within the club.

Congratulations to the winners of all the Summer knockout competitions, results are on the club website, and thanks go to Gary Clinch for managing to get them all played reasonably on time.

An important event in our club year is fast approaching and that is the AGM, to take place at Bishopswood on Thursday 30th November. I would encourage you to come along and see how the club is organised and to see the people working very hard behind the scenes on your behalf. It is also where you can vote for the members that you would like to represent you on the committee. With that in mind, why not think about joining us and put yourself forward. New faces on the committee would be welcome. Nomination forms are in the club house, all you need to do is to get another member to propose you and someone else to second the proposal. If you’re not sure grab an existing, or past, Committee member for a chat or advice. Why not give it a go.

Keep yourself involved during the winter months and enter the Winter Eclectic - 9 or 18 hole cards are accepted. If the weather stops you from playing, no need to worry the clubhouse is still open come and join us.

There are numerous social events on the run up to Christmas, firstly, The Captains Dinner Dance.
Come and support Richard for the final event of his Captaincy. Look on the notice board for all the details.Then early in December is The Christmas Celebration, a fun 9 hole competition when we dress up in Christmas colours and hats, followed by a Christmas lunch, it really is not to be missed. Look out for the sign up sheet on the board.

And to start off the incoming captains year is the Captains Drive In which is followed, in the evening, by the Christmas Draw. First prize this year is a £1000 voucher. Plus lots more. Wow!,

Check the diary and look out for notices and entry sheets.
That’s all for now.

Colin Woodward.
