Ladies' Captain's Announcements
The Past and Present Lady Captains Cup had a few problems at the start but not enough to spoil the day. We had a very nice meal and the winner of the competition was Janet Connor with 39points, well done she is playing well this year.
Talking about Janet Connor, she and Wendy Goodman played in the Coronation Foursomes regional final on Wednesday at Romford GC and had a rather trying time playing with a pair from Benton Hall GC.
* The club Scratch and handicap competitions are to be held on Saturday 21st & 28th of July, 18 holes each Saturday. These have been combined with the men in an effort to make it more of an occasion and are open to all members to enter, obviously if your membership does not cover Saturdays then a green fee would have to be paid but it would be less than the two Saturdays would normally cost. This is an effort to try to make this a real CLUB championship. If you can, please try to take part and make an occasion of this as the Captain's committee is trying to make it, sign-up via BRS!
* Lady Captain's Charity Day is coming up on August 1st, which isn't that far away actually! Billie has kindly agreed to organise the day for us and is asking that all those who intend to compete on the day bring in a prize, preferably something that you would like to receive and certainly within date if edible! Can you please bring in your contribution and leave it in the locker room labelled 'Lady Captain's Charity Day' by next Wednesday, July 25th, at the latest; also any spare wrapping paper so that Billie can wrap the gifts. We are also selling 'balls' for Danny to hit off the 15th tee and the closest to the 17th hole will win a prize, so please bring change with you! The sign-up list is now in the locker room.
* 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.
* 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.
* For those of you who knew her and wish to attend the funeral of Jean King it is taking place at New Southgate crematorium next Wednesday, July 25th, at 2pm.
* 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.
