Fellow Golfers and friends,
This a much delayed new captains log for which I apologise and promise that more reports will follow with more frequent regularity.
Following the very well attended AGM and a colourfully related Drive in by our roving Website manager, come Photographer, come Reporter Greg Harper, I have experienced great support in my new role from everyone in the club. From the members on the committee including the two Pauls to various ex Captains like Alan Charlton, Don Johnson and Jonathon.
The combination of sound advice and tongue in cheek sarcasm reminds me of why have remained a member since 1997.
Various Muddy Medals, Bogeys and Turkeys have been fought over since that Drive in. However it is getting less muddy and less cold as we approach Springy March when proper Cutworthy Competitions will abound. So look out you winter ‘free rollover’ bandits, 45 points may not be so easily found!
On the topic of bandits, a group of them were encountered from Cheshunt and despite valiant efforts from our men one of our teams was beaten in the Gordon Forster. However we still have a shout as the other team, Lovers, Paul Wilson, Steve Durman and Dickie managed to get the better of Huntswood and will be facing the might of Haste Hill this Sunday. Best wishes to them.
Dark dreary December was lit up by another fantastic quiz hosted magnificently yet again by our quiz masters Andy, Eileen, Sinders and the very patient Stef! The atmosphere was welcoming and warm, the questions were tough but the food was hearty and comforting, especially when washed down by a nice drink. A great time was had by all but a last place prize should be included so I have a chance to win something!
The less said about Flu and Mud ridden January the better, however Big Paul Wilson and the lovely Tanya (I think she’s quite patient as well) were beavering away planning what was a great New Years party in February. Sadly I was unable to attend due to a family commitment. Hopefully it will ensure a good Sundhu presence on Captains day which is on Sunday July 19th.
A big well done and thanks to the Vice and Tanya; the club needs these events.
