Lady Captain's Announcements
What a pretty scene to wake up to, unfortunately no good for playing golf though and most of us made the decision early in order to benefit from a lay in. We had a few for bridge and more for lunch so not a complete white out which was nice.
In case you missed it last week the format for the Lady Captain's Day and Lady Captain's Charity day. The lady Captain's Charity Day will be in threes on August 1st and Lady Captain's Day on August 22nd will be 4BBB.
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.
Jenny Benge is running for my charity Alzheimer's UK on Sunday March 25th and I will be coming round with a sponsorship form next week, which will then be put in the locker room, plus you can sponsor her through the website via my charity box on the Lady Captain's page.
Hopefully you have already heard, but just in case you haven't, Middlesex won the 'County of the Year' award at the England Golf Awards last week against their hottest rivals Cheshire.
Goodness we're into March from tomorrow. My year seems to be whizzing by and we haven't really touched the golf yet! The sign-up list for the spring meeting has now gone up in the locker room, for you all to book in, am and corresponding, colour coded, pm slots.
Note we have arranged two practice sessions each for the 5-a-side teams and the Pearson teams. The five-a-side are by invitation only, to those who are in the squad, and the Pearson are on a first come basis for those who have signed up to play in the matches. There is a sign-up sheet in the locker room for the Pearson practice which will each be an hr session with Danny and a maximum of 10 persons per session. These will take place on Tuesday March 6th and Tuesday April 10th. Please sign up asap so that we know who to expect.
