Fund Raising - In preparation for moving into the new facility, there will be a need for funds to purchase items not covered by the project funding. Director, David de Cani has been charged with this task. This committee will not be handling minor fundraising events but rather one or two major events over the next six months. He is asking for club members from all sections (bowls, croquet and golf) to come on board with him to put together plan and assist with the implementation. Members who are willing to assist are asked to please contact David on 0417570447 as soon as possible.

From the Greens
Bowls Greens – Cut to 4mm three time a week.
Golf Course – Tees have been scarified, seeded and top dressed during the week. 10th hole has been fertilised and over seeded.
As part of the Project and the development of the traffic circle in front of the new club rooms, excavation is being carried out on the right-hand side of the 9th green.
As a result this will require a temporary local rule as follows:
This area is to be treated as GUR and two drop zone have been demarcated at the lower right side of the green and on the northern side of the green. Please use the drop zone nearest to where the ball has come to rest.
Commissioning of the irrigation has started and should be completed by the end of next week.
Please note that email addresses at the club have changes and are now as follows:
Tom Cowlard – firstname.lastname@example.org
Lyn Kent – email@example.com
Important Safety Notice: Players are not permitted to access the VOS Construction fenced area alongside the 11th fairway, and behind the 9th and 18th greens to retrieve golf balls. If a player’s ball enters this area, a replacement ball must be played at either, line of entry or from the respective drop zones without penalty. (GUR)
