I invite all Members to join your Board and Management on Monday 27 June (next week) for our Club's 73rd Annual General Meeting at 7pm. We hope to share an informative update, answer your questions and enjoy a convivial evening with a snack and drink afterwards.
Once again, I'd like to thank and acknowledge my team who has presided over and managed so many improvements to our Club over the past months, including the 18th Hole, Practice Nets, paths, bunkers, air conditioning and solar panels, to name just a few. Much of this work coincided with trying to stop the course from floating down Lane Cove Road! Well done to everyone.
As we plan for the next horizon, including potential changes to the Balcony and Auditorium, we will keep Members informed and seek feedback. On this, I urge you to speak to Management and your Board and read the 19TH NEWS rather than believe every rumour and scuttlebutt you hear on the Tee! The most recent one I heard was that I was playing at Castle Hill - not true!
This week saw the shortest day of the year and with it we have the annual challenge of getting everyone a game. One of the innovations introduced this year is the 5-Day Membership limited to playing on Sunday-Thursday. We have welcomed 18 new Members into this category, so please join me in welcoming them. This, along with the additional Monday competitions, has reduced the load on Saturday giving working Members more opportunity to play.
Finally, a warm thank you for the unending support and encouragement over the past 3 years as we look forward to a successful and sustainable future.
Mark Mathieson - President
