CAN ANYONE HELP?

Our Treasurer, Meriel  Walker, completes her 3 year term in October and we  need someone to take over.  If you would like to know what's involved,  you can  email or phone Meriel and she will be happy to explain how everything works.
The AGM is only 8 weeks away, so it would be wonderful if someone  volunteered to take up the post, and be in position for the Meeting. Thanks!

CANCELLATION OF STABLEFORD GREENSOMES

We had hoped to re-arrange the Stableford Greensomes  which were cancelled on August 3rd due the flooding at Buchanan Castle. We were offered a date  in September by Buchanan Castle, which we accepted, however, this has now changed and the Captain has reluctantly decided that due to conflicting Fixtures, the Stableford Greensomes will not take place this year.  We are very disappointed, but  hope to see  as many ladies as possible at the Autumn Meeting on Monday 21st August  at Dunblane.

The Treasurer will give those who had entered Buchanan Castle Greensomes a refund at Dunblane, if you are not playing at Dunblane the refund will be posted to you.

RETURN OF TROPHIES : We are starting to think about the 2017 AGM and prize-giving. If you have any trophies to return, please bring them with you to the  Autumn Meeting or make arrangements to have them returned to any member of the committee as soon as possible.

3 August 2017

STABLEFORD GREENSOMES CANCELLED

6.30am
We have been advised by Buchanan Castle that the course is unplayable, due to torrential rain and flooding....so the Stableford Greensomes competition has had to be cancelled. 

It may be possible to re-arrange a later date, but  we shall let everyone know in due course. It's very disappointing for all, but do sign up for our Autumn  Meeting at Dunblane on Monday August 21st.
Lizee McGraw, Captain
