Captain’s charity for 2017/2018

Our charity for 2017/2018 is the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

Bone cancer can affect children, adolescents, young adults but can also occur in older people, whereas the majority of other cancers occur mainly in older adults. The Bone Cancer Research Trust is the leading charity dedicated to fighting bone cancer and providing support for those affected.

In recent years there have been significant advances in the understanding and treatments of more common cancers, but because of a lack research there has been no significant improvements to primary bone cancer survival rates for nearly 30 years.

The BCRT is working hard to change this and since its formation in 2006 has supported over 60 research projects. They receive no government funding, relying solely on supporters’ and public fundraising.

Let’s do our bit for the Captain’s charity 2017/2018.

Although our greens are in excellent condition for the start of the season, with the weather being about four weeks late extra care needs to be taken to maintain their condition.

Until 1st May both greens will be closed in the mornings, although this will be reviewed on a weekly basis. The closure does not apply to the Wednesday and Saturday coaching sessions, which will start as normal at 10:00. Keep checking the greens’ notice board and the website for updated information.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Markers’ refresher

There will be a Marker’s refresher session, on Friday 11th May starting at 2:30pm, for all those who are on the Club’s list of markers. This is your opportunity to sharpen your marking skills and clarify any points of the Laws of the Sport you are unsure of.

The session will also be open to anyone who has not marked before and who wishes to understand what it means to be a Marker.

If it’s wet, we’ll hold it in the Club House.

If you have any questions, please contact John McKenzie.
