VETS – Newsletter week ending 12th December 2015


It was great to see so many members turn up and enjoy our Xmas 4 Man Ambrose and lunch on Wednesday.  We have a very good mix of members and well done to you all for turning up each week to play.

Thank you again to “The Bush Boy’s x 15” for their sponsorship.  As I said on the day: “It is yours and other members’ generosity that makes my job easier, it enables us to pass on member benefits to you all”.  I would encourage anyone who may be interested in becoming a member sponsor next year to either contact Rod Booth or myself.  If you sponsored a competition by yourself or as part of a syndicate this year it is likely that over the next month or two you will be asked if you wish to do so again in 2016.  Thank you all for your participation.

I believe we did quite well in playing a round of golf, feeding everyone and completing the daily competition and annual trophy presentation by 1.00pm.

In my haste I missed a paragraph of my “Captain’s message”, so I will now make up for it now.

Watson Bob“Thank you to my helpers in John Stewart (timed start day’s) and Ron Blount (shotgun start day’s) for putting out the NTP containers each week.  Also a big thanks to Bob Watson (left) , our roving photographer who quite often gives up his chance to play so that he can provide us with some quality pics. Over the past few months, at my request, Bob has been providing me with a variety of nature shots from around our golf course.  Some of these are quite impressive and will be used on our winner’s certificates in 2016”.

This will be my last “Captain’s Corner” until the 2016 season starts.  Most of you I will see over the next few weeks during the “Xmas Break Stableford Competition”.  We will send out the weekly results of this competition on the website, and they will also be up on display on our notice board for those who are not taking part in the comp.

I wish you well over the festive season and look forward to catching up in 2016.
