Lance Bolam, Noel Manning, Taffy Davies. Thanks for a great job.
Good to have another new member through the website in Declan Stephenson. Please keep promoting our wonderful Club.
Brighton is our yearly challenge,which we hope to win this year.
Nhill is a VVGA tournament teams event which our club won last year, hopefully we can repeat the effort this year.
Centenary Park is our monthly event,which will have a early start,because of one tee start. Good luck for all of those events.
Harold reminded us of our sponsorship from the House of Golf (Moorabbin), who are subsidising our monthly winners' vouchers and he urged us to support them. Please go and see Innes at his new super store near DFO, Moorabbin Airport in Cheltenham.
A quieter month in terms of achievements with only one to report.
Here it is:
See Daryl Edwards who has some good club merchandise and keep Neat and Tidy with good dress code.
An IT expert friend was asked to do a review of the web site. HIs comments were quite favourable although he mentioned the extensive use of photos on the site could make it slow for some users with Smart Phones.
Any one who has found this an issue can advise the Webmaster, Laurie Comerford at:
There were no questions.
He then handed over to our Acting Captain, Jeff Stevens.

Three aussie blokes working up on an outback mobile phone tower: Mongrel, Coot and Bluey.
As they start their descent, Coot slips, falls off the tower and is killed instantly.
As the ambulance takes the body away, Bluey says, "Well, bugger me, someone's gotta go and tell Coot's wife."
Mongrel says, "OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it."
Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Beer.
Bluey says, "Where'd you get the grog, Mongrel?"
"Coot's wife gave it to me," Mongrel replies.
"That's unbelievable, you told the Missus her husband was dead and she gave you a case of beer?"
"Well, not exactly", Mongrel says.
"When she answered the door, I said to her, "You must be Coot's widow."
She said, "You must be mistaken.. I'm not a widow."
