Members’ News

Hi All

Just a reminder that Tuesday Club Night will start at 5.30pm from now on, so be there early (5.15) and don’t expect a game if you are late. This is not a change to annoy everyone, but a recognition that it gets dark earlier. Thursday should not be affected as it starts earlier anyway.

Club Nights will continue until the green is refurbished. We will let you know the date ASAP.

Our finals will be next weekend and there are some unfinished semis to play. The Green Team would be obliged if you put any games in the diary so that we can work round you to get the green ready for finals weekend.

Do come and watch any games and of course finals days are open to anyone. You never know, they might catch the bug!

Looking further ahead, watch out for notice of Margaret’s party on October 21st and consider entering Middx Competitions. You can speak to me or Cassie as Middx rep and ask for entry forms available later in September.

David Chatterton (Hon. Sec.)
