Midland Vets enter the New 20's

As our Association enters into a new decade, I am happy to welcome nine new members into the fold.

Jude Allardice, Lynne Tait, Fran Gibson, Moira Morrison, Jennifer Anderson, Alex Glaister, Jacqueline Trangmar, Fay Ronaldson and Kathy Mackay (revisited).

On behalf of Hella Ballantine, Auchterarder, I pass on her best wishes to you all . Hella won't be renewing her 20 year membership (change of circumstance) and appreciates your friendship during
this time.

I know that "Senior Moments" are completely your prerogative, but don't forget to renew your sub
before the end of February 2020!

Snowdrops are peeping through, not long 'til the Spring Meeting at Auchterarder.

the semi finals from 9am on Monday 28th and the final at 1pm on Monday 28th September.

The SVLGA COMMITTEE MEETING will take place on Sunday 20th September at 6pm in the
Blairgowrie Clubhouse.
The Partick Rosebowl will be played on Monday 21st September 2020.

Decibel levels rose yesterday at Dunblane New Golf Club, when fifty Midland Vets came together from the three Counties to hold their AGM and Prizegiving.
The gathering heard retiring captain Margaret deliver an eloquent account of the season's events.
There had been many highlights and in particular the standard of  golfing achievement amongst our "infant" Vets shone out. The members are truly justified in feeling proud that their Association is vibrant and overly represented at International level. Business over, Margaret presented the silver ware and vouchers, ably guided through by Treasurer Joan. The Friendship Quaich (presented in 2010) by Liz Miskimmin and played for annually between the East and Midland divisions, was welcomed back to the fold. Margaret mentioned that this trophy was held "dearly" by the Midland Vets.
The 2019 Midland Champion, Linda Dyball was presented with the Lady McInnes Shaw Cup, which commemorated the inauguration of the Midland Vets in 1950.
Linda concluded the prizegiving with a resounding vote of thanks to Margaret and all the committee.
Lunch followed accompanied with a welcome glass of wine and served by the newly installed caterers at Dunblane
