What  a lovely autumn day we enjoyed at Blairgowrie Golf Club this morning for our  AGM and Prize-giving.  Captain Shelagh Quinn welcomed fifty four ladies and gave a comprehensive report  on the year's activities.  Reports were given by the Secretary, Margaret Hunter and Treasurer,  Meriel Walker, before Shelagh handed over to the new Captain, Lizee McGraw (Auchterarder).   Lizee  congratulated  Shelagh on a very successful year for Midland Vets and  thanked her for her dedication. Lizee  introduced her Vice Captain, Lorna  Bennett, and Angela Crossland, who replaces Liz Milligan as P & K committee member.
Following  close of business,  the Prize-giving  took place.  Proceedings were rounded off by the  Midland Vets 2016 Champion, Lorna McKinley who gave a very kind vote of thanks.

She had been unwell for some time with emphysema and various other ailments but died quite suddenly on Friday 7th October.  Some Vets will remember Cecily and the work that she carried out as Captain when we had the internationals at Strathmore.

England are the Senior Women's Home Internationals title winners for the 10th time since the tournament started in 2003. They completed a 100 per cent winning week at Alyth, by beating Wales 5.5-2.5 to win the Sue Johnson Trophy for the third year in a row.
Ireland, Scotland and Wales finished with 1pt apiece. After a long involved three-stage countback, European champions Ireland were declared the runners-up with Wales third and Scotland last of four, which means Scotland "won" the Wooden Spoon. Oh well, there's always next year....
