Ladies' Captain's Announcements
The Committee cup went well on Monday and was won by Pauline with a nett 70, well done.
Pauline also played well today to win the Silver division with 37 points and getting her handicap back down to 20, Tracey was runner up with 35points. The Bronze division was won by Lisa Martin with 39 points and the runner up was Sarah Rees with 37 points and both had their handicaps cut. Finally the Copper division was won by Alison with a massive 40 points getting her handicap down by 2 shots and the runner up was Sue Agapiou with 39 points who also had her handicap reduced. Well done all of you.
The club Scratch and handicap competitions first round took place on Saturday and the ladies are very close, so this Saturday's final round should prove to be an exciting finish. Let's hope it's not too hot and wish everyone a good game.
Lady Captain's Charity Day is next Wednesday. Billie is kindly organising the day for us. Registration will take place in the reception area of the clubhouse; there is no need to sign in on the PSI this week. Remember that the competition is non-qualifying, entry is £10 and will include many 'fun' extras. Thank you to the five or six ladies who have volunteered to bake cakes for the hut.
Another upcoming competition that needs a bit of planning is the Ladies Invitation Day. Remember this is on Thursday August 16th, so get going and be sure to invite your guests. This is to be a fourball team event played as an alliance. You can either invite three guests or team up with another BHP lady with one guest each, the choice is yours. The sign-up list is now in the locker room and is looking a little bare at the moment, please get your team together and add them to the list, we don't want to have a small and embarrassing field do we!
The Gents invitation to the Ladies is also on the horizon, Sunday August 19th. Ray Ripsher is organising this and has lined up many men to play that did not play in the Ladies invitation, so are looking for ladies to partner them. If you are interested in taking part be sure to contact either myself, Tracey or Ray to let us know your availability and we shall find you a man!!!
Di Williams is seeking help for her South of England Junior Girls Championships August 13th – 15th; please sign-up in the locker room if you are available and willing to help.
Mia is still in Barnet Hospital with her back and leg problems plus an infection. We wish her well and a speedy recovery. She is hoping to be discharged later this week.
I would be very happy if more of you would sign up for the Lady Captain/Pro challenge. The sheet is now in the pro shop.
Do remember that Pauline is collecting 1&2 litre milk bottle tops in aid of the London Air Ambulance. If you can please collect these, give them a quick rinse and bring them to the club we will provide a collection container in the locker room.
