On Monday 6th November, Cotswold Edge was packed with Ladies for the 52nd AGM of the Veterans’ Section of GLCGA.
Many arrived early and chatted away over coffee and biscuits as they caught up with friends from other clubs before settling down to a smooth flowing AGM with Annette Murfin as Acting Chair and Eve Clement as Acting Secretary.
Members responded positively to Eve's combined report from the committee and the fact that Annette stated that there would be a reduction in subscriptions for 2018 to £1.
The Captains’ reports elected plenty of chuckles especially as they emphasised the pleasure obtained at matches with plenty of chat and laughter over the meal table regardless of the weather or results.
After the Committee was elected there was just one new face, Bobbie Woodley, who is welcomed as Captain South, which means job descriptions can now be revamped as needed.
It was lovely to see the spread of Ladies receiving prizes due to the varied nature of our competitions and the splitting into several handicap categories rather than just Silver and Bronze.
Despite suffering from side effects from a flu bug I was still able to enjoy being elected as Chairman and the Committee took note of all the comments made under AOB which were followed up in the Committee meeting held directly afterwards.
Photos of trophy winners who were present are below; the Committee list has been updated and the 2018 fixture list entered.
