CAPTAINS REPORT:

All games since last meeting have been well attended and the issue of no shows seems to be fixed with all attending the last two games.

We have not been able to send out a blanket email covering the specifics for the club championships. Gordon will advise Gary of the details and he will get an email in the system this week to cover the bookings and the green fee payments.

Reduced green fees for delegated positions only on the committee was confirmed as proposed by Colin Thorniley.

Gordon proposed a fun / novelty day be planned for the Hartfield game on 28th November, ie second last Game of the year. Competition to be based on teams of four from the same club where possible. Details to be advised and a special prize will be offered by Stan Bird for the “best dressed team”
