Hello everyone, the committee met on Monday for the final time this year with a very long agenda that took us past 10-00 pm. Therefore lots of info to pass on.
Guy reported that we are holding just £2-50 short of £800 in the bank plus £50 out on deposit.
Gareth / Guy / Paul Clarke have had a reduction following Stratford with Gareth winning on his own track (Still he did buy us all a drink as it was Captains day)
Diddy Dave & Tim Millis have been increased.
Christmas Party. Friday 15th December. Worcester G & CC
If you have not had a call yet your Buddy will be in touch soon as if you & your wives / partners are coming you will need to select your choice from the fantastic Christmas menu that is on offer @ £20 a head. We will not have a table plan as each couple will draw for which table where to sit before going into the dining room. We are planning to move 2 couples at the end of each course to the next table in order that most people will have a chance to meet others. If (as one of our members is adamant he is not moving) you do not wish to move please let me know & I will make sure you stay put.
We are meeting at 7-00 for 7-30 & Dress is smart casual (No jeans)
Christmas Trotter Bewdley Pines Wednesday 27th December
We are meeting @ 9-45 for Full English (I'm sure you will all be starving) Tee- Off is 10-45. Again Buddies will be in touch. Guest are welcome but we need to be careful ensuring everyone can get back in the light so please inform your buddy. (I know Dave SOS & Mike Alldritt are bringing guests) Cost is £35 & remember we only meet following golf for presentations without food.
As I am sure most of you are aware Dave Morgan won on the 18th hole from Paul Clarke in what must have been one of our very best finals with great golf from both players. The match ebbed & flowed with both players in front at one stage or another. Well done both of you I know Andrew / Mark Wright & myself really enjoyed
Following a superb match.
Golf Courses for the coming year 2018.
This is not an item on the agenda that is completed quickly & it would be fair to say that some decisions have yet to be finalised however I can pass on some information. Bromsgrove is our planned venue for Easter, Burghill Valley in conjunction with Westfields FC (Who!) will be our only May fixture & we will play for the Portobello Open at the same time. The Captain has chosen Shifnal for his day in Sept or Oct. That leaves 2 dates to fill Edgbaston is looking good for one but no decision yet on final choice.
Gareth would like to go for a Curry following the Cup presentations at the St Johns working men's club which will be in February. However there was some descent over this so if again you are against this let me know but I do feel it is the Captains choice & unless there are a lot of chaps who won't come we should respect his wishes.
Portugal / Ireland Tours
Portugal tour is from 3rd to 8th June. I think all places are full but you need to contact Steve Mc if you are thinking of going. Ireland Tour is still in the hands of Steve Welsh & Pete Newell & as soon as I hear anything I will let you know.
A G M 2018
Pete Wilde has once again challenged us to a match which I am hoping we can play on 22nd March our intention at the moment is to eat at WG C&C & hold the meeting there. However there is a little bit of work to do before then so again I will update later.
AOB. Finally the committee has decided that unless a specific golf club we visit tell us we must wear Jackets & Ties in future all PIGS matches will be Casual smart dress. We would ask everyone changes out of golf gear. What ever will we talk about with PIGS ties off the agenda?
