AGM - Wednesday 24th October

The AGM was held at Balbirnie Golf Club on Wednesday 24th October.  The sun was shining and the autumn colours seen through the clubhouse windows were magnificent.  The course looked very inviting - however, the Midland Vets were meeting for business!

Captain Winifred reported on a wet, but successful year with only one of our competitions being postponed due to the weather.  Competition entries remain healthy and all our members report that they really enjoy their golf with the Vets.   Neither our inter-district teams or our international teams had their best results this year - better luck next year!  We did win the (sharing with West), the Lyon Trophy - the inter-district trophy at the SVLGA Meeting at Blairgowrie - and Midland Vets featured strongly in the prize list.

For 2013, Alison is stepping down as Secretary, having served 3 years, and Sandy Bushby (Blairgowrie) has agreed to take on this post.  Rose Graham retires, having also served for 3 years, and the new committee member for Stirling & Clackmannan is Linda McAinsh (Alloa).

After the business of the meeting was concluded, the trophies and prizes were presented by Captain Winifred.  Midland Vets champion, Kathleen Webster proposed a Vote of Thanks.  An excellent buffet lunch was enjoyed by all.

2012 Prizewinners - Margaret Tough, Dot Whytock, Winifred MacCallum, Kathleen Webster, Alison Houston, Emma Wilson, Linda Dyball

Midland Vets AGM

The Midland Vets AGM will be held at Balbirnie Park Golf Club on Wednesday 24th October at 11.30am.  The meeting will be followed by a buffet lunch at a cost of £12.

All Midland Vets - playing members and Associates - are welcome to attend.  It is a good chance to catch up with friends in the Vets and to chat in a non-golfing setting.  If you have not already done so, please let Alison (Secretary) know that you are intending to come as it helps the caterer to have an idea of numbers attending.

And remember.  As last year, you can pay your subscription for 2013 at the AGM.    The subscription is £12 - no change from last year. Cash or cheques are acceptable.  Your receipt will be sent out with your Fixture List early in 2013.

Hope to see you next Wednesday.
