February 13 - Club Committee Meeting Report - Main Points of Interest for Members Information.
The following are the main points arising  from the Committee Meeting  that took place at Folke on  Wednesday 13 February.   A copy of the minutes will be posted on the Club Notice Board.

Club Captain’s  Report: Club Captain Kevin  opened the meeting by thanking everyone for attending, for those who had agreed to fill vacant posts and for new members that had joined the committee this year.

General Secretary Report:

Treasurers Report: Stuart distributed copies of the accounts and said that as usual at this time of the year the club was in surplus.

Handicap Secretary’s Report: The February medal cancelled due to weather will be rescheduled for 24 February. The two Knock Out competitions are down to the finals stage and will be played by the end of the month. There was a discussion about the number of cards submitted that had an incorrect stableford score recorded on them and it was noted that this is not a disqualification situation as players are signing for their gross score on each hole. Nevertheless in most competitions there is at least one player who will have a stableford score on the results sheet different to what they had recorded on their score card.

Sponsorship Status: Kevin reported that to date we have 13 confirmed sponsors after our first 4 weeks and, with four weeks remaining before the draw, he encouraged all members to try and get us a few more sponsors. It was agreed that Peter would ask Steve if he, or one of the Harris family, would do the draw for the sponsors at the start of our next committee meeting.

Hardy A Captain: Darren said that their first match is in March and he will put up a sheet for people to indicate their willingness to play for the team during the year

 Hardy B Captain: Simon said their first match is against Crane Valley on 23 Feb at home.

3 Counties League Captain:: Kevin said the team were in the final of the winter knock out and this will take place on 9 March at Charminster at 10.30am – no food. The Freeman Trophy will take place on 6 April.

 Senior Captain:  The seniors had been playing largely team ‘fun’ games during the winter rather than stableford competitions. Their first match is away to Kingweston on 19 March.
