I would like to take this opportunity to pass on my sincere thanks to all the members who supported my Captain's Day on Saturday. I hope you had a great time and played well. Congratulations to all the prize winners on the day with a special mention for Ken Vernon who was the overall winner. All prize winners will have their Pro Shop accounts credited with their winnings.
Whilst emailing, I would like to say a few thank you's. Special mention must go to my Vice-Captain, Kevan Pallett who started issuing cards at 6.30am and continuned right through until the end of the day. To my wife and Lady Captain, Helen for all of her help. I hope she enjoys her Lady Captain's Day today as much as I did mine. Thanks to Neil Ansell for his wondeful keg of beer which was greatly enjoyed and to all of the ladies who baked cakes for the day, all of which went down a storm with the competitors after nine holes.
A few thank you's now for the staff, beginning with Ali and her team who made the day complete and without them it would not have been the success it was. Pete and Daniel for their help in the shop and setting up the challenging putting competition. Simon and his greens staff for presenting the course in such fantastic condition. It is a credit to you all for the hard work which you have put in during some difficult times. Last but not least thanks also to Andy Mee who has guided me through thick and thin with his enthusiasm and sound council over the last eighteen months.
Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the Lingdale members. The support and kind words which I have received during the past eighteen months has been heartwarming at times and your generousity on Saturday towards my chosen charity was phenomenal. This money will be gratefully received by my charity, MNDA and will be used for the benefit of those with MND.
Once again, thanks to you all for your continued support.
God bless you all.
