GC Elite Squad Practice – 23/24 November

JP Moberly

The England GC team are holding a warm-up weekend at Bowdon at the end of this month (23/24th Nov). It will be over two days when the England team will play the Elite Squad. There will be singles and doubles.
3 full lawns will be in use by the squad over the weekend.
The games will start at 9.30am each day
England – J-P Moberly, Stephen Mulliner, Tobi Savage, Richard Bilton
Elite Squad – Ian Burridge, William Gee, Rachel Gee, James Death

It will not only be a chance for members/spectators to see some of the country’s best GC players in action, but also the England team. It doesn’t seem like there is much top level GC around this neck of the woods so it’s a great opportunity for people to come and spectate – the more spectators the merrier!

Suggestions Book

As part of the initiative to provide feedback from club members, a Suggestions Book is now available in the clubhouse.

Members are encouraged to use this book to put forward suggestions to improve the organisation, facilities, competitions, and general management of the club. Please date and sign your suggestions which can then be considered by other members and by the management committee.

Website Update

After 4 months of the new website, we are making a few changes to the structure of the pages and the news items to try to make it easier to use the website.
The main changes are to the posts of the various competitions.
The changes are:
1) The Wednesday Competitions will now be shown as a subset of the Competitions page rather than part of the General News page. And the top 10 places in the table will only be shown on the latest competition
2) NWF League games will also be shown as subset of the Competition page, as will the CA Competitions.
3) The Tea Rota will be moved to the About Us page. Although the rota will not be used until next summer season. It will mean that members do not need to be registered to see it.

These changes will take place over the next few days. So apologies if some of the information is not quite where you expect it.
