SVLGA Decides to Rollover 2020 Golf Season to 2021

The SVLGA committee made the decision at the beginning of May to abandon all golfing events programmed for 2020 season.
The Jamboree, hosting the English Divisions at Glenbervie Golf Club will now take place there from Monday 2nd to 5th August 2021.
The Scottish Championship will not be contested this year. The SVLGA Championship Finals will take place on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th September 2021 at Blairgowrie as usual.
Consequently, the Blairgowrie event will run on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st September 2021.
 
The exact reasons for taking this course of action also apply to the Midland Vets.
People of a senior age joining together from three Counties with catering facilities severely restricted.
Your Midland Vets' Committee decided that the right thing was to follow suit and rearrange the 2020
into 2021.
Thank you to everyone who paid their 2020 subscription. The official membership is 68 members from
P&K, 57 members from Fife and 43 members from S&C. Your membership will rollover to include the 2021 season, unless you intimate otherwise.
I have decided not to "rollover" my captaincy, however I will remain on the committee as Past Captain and along with Dorothy and a new Vice Captain we will carry the Midland Vets forward.
I will post all the new dates for the 2021 Fixture Card when I have them all firmly in place.
 
Meantime, enjoy being back on the fairways of your own clubs and renew your zest for the game we all
love.
 
Take care, and enjoy the three hour rounds, while we have them!
 
Liz Milligan Captain.

Sheila Johnston, Ladybank Member

Sadly, we report the passing of Sheila Johnston, who lost her brave fight against cancer last Tuesday.
Sheila was a Midland Vet and member of Ladybank Golf club, where she was a club champion and Lady Captain.
She survived her husband's death, only by a few months, and despite enduring some harsh medical treatments,
her outlook remained positive.
Sheila will be remembered fondly by many of our members.

INTER DIVISIONAL MATCHES

Good afternoon Midland Vets,

I have been in telephone conversation with the Captains and Vice Captain of the SVLGA East, West
and Northern Divisions regarding our fixed matches, which were due to take place during the month of May 2020.

We are all in agreement that these scheduled matches CAN NOT go ahead, in line with Government
direction, designed to save life.

Consequently,       7th May 2020, Midland vs North, Alyth
                              14th May 2020, Midland vs East, Mortonhall
                               28th May 2020, Midland vs West Troon Portland

Have been cancelled.

Whither these matches will take place, later in the year, currently is impossible to predict.

Best wishes to you all,

Liz Milligan, Captain.
