Richard Abbey was intending the annual charity plant sale this year to take place between 10.00am and 4.00pm on the weekend of Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May. Unfortunately, due to a combination of circumstances, our supplier is short of stock (and all nurseries are apparently facing similar problems). Consequently, we are awaiting an update on the situation from the supplier and although Richard still intends to carry on with the sale it is likely that it will be reduced to one day. We will advise as and when we receive any updates. Richard gives freely of his time in organising and manning the sale which will, hopefully, consist of a wide range of summer bedding plants. All profits from the sale will go to the Captains' Charities.
Another reminder of the Poker evening scheduled for Friday 8th June. Although more interest has already been generated than for the previous evening, the format adopted for the next event is more flexible and will be able to cope just as easily with beginners and more experienced players. Whatever your ability, come along and enjoy the evening - tickets are available from behind the bar and the £20 cost includes food and £15 worth of Poker chips.
There is planty of golf activity during the next week or so with visitors, team matches, the Nine & Dine on Friday evening, the Rabbits Open Day on Sunday, the Mid-Week and Nine Hole Stableford on Wednesday and the First Seniors Open Day on Thursday. Please look at the board by the tunnel, notices in the clubhouse and on the website for tee reservations.
There are still places available for the Invitation Am-Am on Saturday 2nd June - please sign up on the list in the 19th.
The draw for the Moor Allerton Mixed Exchange Day on Wednesday 6th June will be made later today and be posted in the hall.
The Gent's Final Medal will be played in conjunction with the Medal on Saturday 9th June. Those who have qualified for the Final Medal have the opportunity to reserve their starting time prior to the booking going live for everyone else. If you wish to avail yourselves of this, the list of the people concerned is on the board in the 19th - please enter your preferred time alongside your name.
The Hole in One on Sunday 10th June is open to members of any category who have achieved a hole in one. The entry sheet is in the hall and explanatory notices are in both locker rooms.
Possibly the standout item covered in yesterday and todays emails concerns Andy Harm's Gent's Captain's Weekend. The entry sheet for the competition on Saturday 16th June will go live on the website today. Also available from today are tickets for the ABBA Tribute Act on Friday 15th June, the start of the Captain's Weekend. This is a superb act and entry will be strictly by ticket only. The tickets, including some buffet food, are priced at £22.50 and are available from behind the bar. Prompt booking is highly recommended.
