Brockworth Salver Wednesday 16th May 2018 at Fitlton GC
On a dry but cool blustery day 126 ladies assembled at Filton GC for the first Vets Competition of the season.
This is the Brockworth Salver which was first played for at Stinchcombe Hill GC in the early 1970s. It was won by a Mrs Mary Walwyn who had been a member of the former Brockworth GC after which the Salver was named. The competition is held annually for the GLCGA Vets Members in May in the North and South of the County alternately. There were ladies from 19 clubs including 21 Supervets (aged 75+). The game was played in good spirits and the results are below.
Grateful thanks must go to the Staff and Members of Filton GC for their help and efficiency on the day – not forgetting Julia Colling, Vets Rep at Filton, for her tremendous support and organisation.
The prizes will be presented at the Vets AGM to be held on Monday 5th November 2018 at Cotswold Edge GC.
Please make every effort to attend and collect your Trophy and Vouchers.

There was a buzz as club Club Reps met for coffee before the annual meeting of Reps and collected annual cards Sue Johns welcomed everyone to the meeting especially new clubs Alexander Park and Lansdowne as well as Gloucester now a Members Club.
Eve Clements thanked all the Vets Reps for their cooperation and responses to her various emails and attachments.She thanked the Committee for their support and hard work over recent months.
Annette Murfin requested that reps sent subs in one payment by the end of March.
In her absence Pat Righton’s report was given by Eve explaining the competitions. In 2018 the handicap limit would be 36 but 37-40 handicapsmay enter off 36. Once start times are issued there are no refunds, but Ladies should try to find a replacement and keep the rep and Pat informed. Results are put on the Vets web site and prizes presented at the AGM in November, so reps should encourage members to attend.
Reps were informed that by the AGMin November nominations would be welcome for a Treasurer, Kit Organiser and Vice-Captain North and asked to encourage their members to contact the committee for more information and then to stand.
Thanks to all who attended and for the kind comments made about the meeting. Thanks also to Cotswold Edge Golf Club for hosting the meeting.

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.
