County Competitions 2020

The entry lists for next season’s competitions are up on the notice boards.

The Ladies’ list will be taken down on Sunday 15th September (although Julie says she will be able to take last minute entries by phone for a few more days)
The Men’s list will be taken down on Sunday 29th September
The discrepancy between these dates is dictated by the dates the different County sections have specified by which the entries must be received.  Please make sure you put your name on the list in good time.

If you are entering a team for a pairs, triples or fours competition, please make sure you put down all the names of your team on the list as this a) is required by the County and b) prevents confusion later on.

Putting The Green To Bed

The Club will be putting the green to bed on the morning of Monday 7th October.  This is the usual call for a volunteer force of members - the more we have the quicker it gets done.  No specialist knowledge needed - jobs for everyone.  Come along (men and ladies) and be part of the gang.  If you are able to turn out, please add your name to the list on the notice board.  A small bribe of tea/coffee and bacon/sausage sandwiches may be involved!

Club Clothing

Will members please be aware that responsibility for the supply of Club shirts, fleece jackets and ladies’ cardigans has been passed to Peter Munn for the time being.  Please speak to Peter in good time if you require anything as we don’t hold large stocks and lead times can sometimes be longer than we might wish.
