Dear Members, Friends and Guests,
Just a quick thank you to everyone who supported me on my Captains away day at Brookmans Park yesterday.
From the kind emails I’ve have received since, coupled with the many positive comments throughout yesterday, I think we can say the venue choice was a resounding success.
The weather was perfect, the food good and the company excellent.
Well done to all the prize winners with the overall winner on the day being Steve Hall with a magnificent 39 points.
Moving forward, we have a busy couple of months ahead so please note the following dates which can also be found on the table reminders in the club:
First up we have PRINCESS DAY next FRIDAY August 12th in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. As your Captain I urge you all to get behind this one, please. It’s always a well run day by the Durmans and Pattersons and definitely not one to miss. If you haven’t got a time yet it’s not too late, speak to Roy Durman directly or let me or Kevin know and we will liaise with Roy to make sure you get a place.
Next up, SATURDAY September 3rd is Quiz Night. The team sheet is up in the club. This is always a popular night so get your names down and guests are always welcome.
This year we are hosts for the FOREST CUP which is on SATURDAY September 10th and again this gives us an excellent opportunity for silverware. The competition is open to CGC category three players (13/20) and, again, you will find the sheet up in the club so names down please if you want to be considered for selection.
SUNDAY September 25th is our trip to Oxfordshire for the Clapham Common National Finals. Team Captain Peter Lawrence has steered his squad to the Final where we are one of six finalists. Come and support them on the day if you can please.
SATURDAY October 8th is my farewell bash as your Captain and so I would like to invite all CGC members and their guests to our ANNUAL DINNER and DANCE which again will be hosted at Theydon Bois Golf Club.
Again the sheet is up now for this one as we have limited space. That said I would love to see you all there so, again, names down ASAP please.
FRIDAY October 14th you are formally invited to Mr Brian Sinden’s PRESIDENT’S DAY.
This years AGM where Kevin will be sworn in as our new Captain will be on FRIDAY October 21st followed by his drive in two days later on SUNDAY October 23rd. This will be the last time I will be asking for your support. This time it’s for Kevin on his special day.
Finally we have our next party on SATURDAY October 29th, a Halloween themed fancy dress party. It’s going to be our best party yet!
Tickets on sale from next week. See me if you want one, two, four, six……….
That’s it for now, plenty to note so please add these dates to your diaries.
