Sonia’s December Blog
Welcome ladies to my first blog. Before I go any further I would like to congratulate Sue Whitecross on a very successful year. The ladies section ran smoothly and she raised over £3000 for her charity, outstanding.
Our new captain Sue Howitt has chosen Acorns as her charity, a children’s charity that is close to her heart. I am sure that we will all do our best to support this very worthy charity. To kick start the charity for a small donation you can hang a card on the tree in the locker room rather than sending individual Christmas cards to ladies in the club.
We have two new Committee Members (apart from myself) .They are Cathy Wise who has become Handicap Secretary. As most of you know Cathy is a very experienced golfer and brings with her a great depth of knowledge. We are also joined by Lesley Kiener who has taken on the role of Competition Secretary. We are very grateful to both Cathy and Lesley and know they will be valuable members of the Committee.
Then of course there is me. I joined the golf club 13 years ago .My husband ( a non-golfer ) bought me a set of clubs as a birthday present and told Nigel to sign me up for three months, she’ll soon get bored! It didn’t take long for me to realise that golf meant a whole day off work! And I have stayed ever since.
The Committee would like to say thank you to the 56 ladies who attended the AGM. There were no letters received and the meeting was closed in a timely fashion.
Warwickshire Veteran ladies is open to ladies 50 + with a joining handicap of 28 or less. The cost of membership is only £5 per year. There is a sign-up sheet already in the locker room, place money in an envelope with your name on it and pop it in the payment box.
From Sunday 15th December to Wednesday 15th January 2014 you may book your own tee times for social golf or play your winter pairs matches. After that date check the notice board for details of Winter Competitions and events.
Finally this week is the very popular Christmas Bring and Win followed by lunch. Don’t forget to bring a small gift with you. Enjoy your golf and have a lovely Christmas.
The Committee wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Sonya Kimber Vice-Captain.
