Can I remind all members that when the draw is posted on the blog by any member of the Committee your tee time will not be amended under any circumstances. This happened last Saturday when The Competition Secretary's agreed to move one club member from pm to am. This was done in good faith given the explanation for the change but was an incorrect decision. See 6.4 of your fixture book. The Competition Secretary tries to accommodate all members requests when they put their name down for each draw, and will continue to do so.

If you have any questions about this post please contact the Competition Secretary.

Special mention must go to Gents Competition Secretary who must be needing some medical treatment having been in the job for 2 years and after Saturday playing from the wrong Tee on 13 claimed he had left his wedge on the second green arrived back at the club after 18 to find it had been handed in to the office. FOUND in the carpark, normal golfers usually go to the practice ground first, must have been in a hurry.
