Whitstable Tidings Issue 9 2016

Message from the President:

Hello everybody,

Firstly, in my last message in the Tidings, I asked the weather Gods to give us good weather for our summer golf season… well if you don’t ask you don’t get! Fantastic weather we have had and it looks like it is going to continue in the short term.

I would particularly like to thank all those who took part in the men’s Presidents day. I found it very rewarding although quite hard work. I had forgotten from the previous year how full on it was! We had very deserving winners in Brian Wild & his late ‘stand in’ partner, Dave Atkins. Thanks again Dave for standing in late the day before. It just shows you it was meant to be.

That brings me on to the Ladies Presidents day, again really well attended and together with the weather, they had a very enjoyable day with the Lady Captain winning the day for the second year running. As you may know, Joan has recently been in hospital and I am sure you will all join me in wishing her a speedy recovery and hope to see her back on the golf course soon.

I would also like to congratulate James on his very successful Junior Captains day in which he came of age in his public speaking. Well done James indeed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported this day. Without your support these special days wouldn’t happen and would not be so enjoyable. So for those who didn’t take part this year, come along next year and support next year’s junior captain.

Captain’s day and Captains charity days were both a huge success and enjoyed by all those taking part especially by Bob who raised money for his charity. In particular thanks go to Richard Gremo who organised the charity day for Bob, finding sponsors for the different holes and organising the Hog Roast. I am sure Bob will go into more detail in his section of the Tidings. I would like to say well done Bob and all those who helped.

Finals day happened this week-end, so well-done to all the winners and commiserations to all the losers. Unfortunately there has to be a loser but next year could be your year so put your name up in 2017.
