Hi everyone,

Firstly my apologies, I have not communicated with you for a long time. Most of you will know I had my Gall Bladder removed in February which knocked me for six for a few months. These months were the months I was hoping to utilise initiating some of my personal ideas and these have consequently been delayed.

But let’s look at the positives from the past few weeks:

Last time I mentioned improving communication within the club, utilising Ben’s weekly newsletter, changing our website etc. Things are improving.

Our Wine Tasting evening was AGAIN another great success. Captains wines have been selected and available at the bar, £1 per bottle to the charities.

The Masters week was more frantic than ever, with me and others having the opportunity to play with Robert Rock, a privilege 5 under through nine holes with a three putt (Robert was, not me). The new academy opened at the start of the week followed by a bigger than last year par 3 event on the Friday. The weekend saw one of our largest playing fields in terms of numbers. Next year, expect something to change, either size of field or order of playing. Having the potential winners playing the final holes in near-darkness is not desirable. Congratulations to George Hussey, both net and gross winner.

I mentioned last time that we would try and turn The Richard Moore Trophy into an event to be remembered, and I hope we achieved that. We tried to produce a tournament atmosphere with a two tee-time, drawn start, and a BBQ included in the price to encourage people to stay afterwards.

The response at the prize giving was tremendous, very rewarding for me and the others who made the event what it was. Special mention to David Frost for dreaming up and leading the event, and to Andrew Drummond and Brian Mulrey whose efforts have left us with a superb scoreboard for future use.

YOU raised in excess of £700 pounds for Kent Air Ambulance, be proud of yourselves, I am.

Busy now getting ready for the Captains Charity day on Saturday 30th May. Before anyone says it, May does indeed appear too busy - The Richard Moore Trophy followed by Argyle Trophy, then Falmouth, then Captains Charity Day. We are looking at this, and propose to spread these events in future.

I am keeping this brief so I can get it onto the website before we add information about Charity day and get a chance to send a letter to you all saying to read this. So cheerio for now and more info and more regular info to follow.

Hope you like this new members website
