Captains Update

January 26th

On my first update, I find myself apologizing for obviously being a very bad boy in a previous life and therefore being delivered the horrendous weather we experienced on Changeover Day. In the seven years of living here full time I do not think I have ever experienced such strong winds and heavy rain. My thanks go out to those who managed to play some golf and for those who did not, you have my complete understanding as at7.30amwhen I asked Ian if he was happy to let us play the course on safety reasons and he said yes, I did not know whether to laugh or cry!

The turn out for the evening dinner was superb for which I am truly thankful. I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

Again a big thank you to Howard McEvoy our past Captain, I have greatly appreciated the way he has involved me in all things, which I am sure will make this year easier for me, or at least that is my hope! Thanks also to Suzanne, who has given Howard and myself tremendous support and to all the members throughout the year who have offered help to the club.  Finally thank you to all the staff for continuing to support PDF and its members.

Welcome to Bob Hart my Vice Captain, please give Bob your full backing this coming year and beyond.

We had our first social night of the year recently; the Quiz Night, organized by David Spragg, Lorraine Bull and Carol Newland, on behalf of us all thanks to them. It was a very successful evening and generated a great atmosphere with some 54 players attending. The final winners were, Linda & Paul Anthony and Gloria & Allan Pooley so many congratulations to them. The February event is yet to be finalized but watch the notice board for details in the near future, as I am sure it will be another successful night.
