Presidents Notes

The Vets members, their wives, partners and guests were welcomed by the President to the 2021 Christmas function at the Rossdale Golf Club.  The venue had been prepared in a bright Christmas atmosphere and with appropriate table decorations. The hosting club and staff were thanked by the members.

In attendance was Life Member, Ray Underwood with his wife Rhonda.  Fellow current Life Members Lance Bolam, Bernie Coyle, Donald MacDonald and David Vine sent their apologies due to health situations.

The President introduced the current CoM and volunteers who were thanked for their assistance throughout a year which was governed by health and government restrictions causing the cancellation of numerous tournaments.

Our Sponsors, The House of Golf through Innes Ireland and Chris Thorne of Jims Window Cleaning were thanked for their continuing support over the last couple of years.  Sadly for health reasons Chris has had to retire and withdraw his sponsorship.

The President also welcomed our guest Elaine Hills and mentioned our new Social Members Norm and Barbara Grant.

A special mention went to our oldest playing member George Giles at 86 who attended with wife Suzanne.

Our members present congratulated member Alex Johnson who now resides in Maffra on receiving an OAM on the Queens Birthday Honours in June for Services to Golf and Community services.

After our delicious lunch which consisted of main course and sweets, the CoM presented the ladies in attendance a gift box with a Breast Cancer Network biro.

The Captain Jeff Stevens then presented the awards to the lucky golfers for the 2020/21 season with Bruce Keenan being awarded the Lance Bolam trophy as being Club Champion.

This was followed by the drawing of the 13 door prizes which concluded the day.

A great day was had by those who attended our 2021 Christmas function.
