Although a bit later than usual, we had our meeting after our match today.  We had a nice lunch then proceeded with the meeting.  Last years winners were awarded their prizes (see Competition Winners Page).  Erle Sexsmith had copies of last year's finances, and how we are to present and handed them out for the members to view.  Finances were excepted as presented.  No new business was put forward so we went directly in to selecting this year's Executive.  Allan Hepburn accepted the position of Captain, and Stewart Lawrence accepted the position of Vice Captain.  All other executives accepted to remain as is.

4.0          New Business

 4.1          Based on an email from Andy Yule there was a discussion regarding the opening day draw for prize-money.  With a declining membership the issue of how prize-money should be awarded provided several suggestions.  In the end it was decided to scrap the opening day draw and apply the money to competitions throughout the season.  The idea being to give any participant a chance to win any time during the golf year.  These prizes are in addition to the regular prizes awarded for club championship, fedup cup and match play.  Depending on revenue the some second and third prizes may be discontinued, committee to decide.  The competitions will be decided by Jack and committee members, however you suggestions are welcome.  It was also decided to discontinue the father and son day.

      As usual we will have competitions running concurrent with the regular match and  stroke play games it will be more important than ever that everyone putt out and abide by the fundamental rule of the club ?Play the Ball as it Lies?. The Captain or designate will decide if the course merits winter rules. Otherwise don?t touch or move that ball unless you?re willing to incur the appropriate penalty and if you can?t identify your ball without picking it up put a mark on it so that you can tell it?s yours.
