2019 Captain & Captain's Drive-In

posted 2 Apr 2019, 05:01 by Peter Kolton
As you know, the Captain’s Drive-In takes place this Saturday, 6th April.

At the recent AGM, it was agreed by all that Dave Morgan should continue his captaincy for one more year with Kevin Beaumont taking over in 2020 instead of 2019.  

Unfortunately due to family circumstances Dave finds himself unable to commit to playing much golf in the foreseeable future as he is likely to be looking after children/grandchildren most weekends. As a result he will not be rejoining as a member for the time being. He does hope to rejoin at some point during the season. Dave is extremely disappointed about this and sends his apologies to all of you.

This does, of course, mean that we are currently without a captain. At our Committee meeting last night our Vice-Captain Kevin Beaumont confirmed that he is content to take over the role, and this met with the approval of the Committee.

This does contradict the decision at the recent AGM, although it confirms the decision at the 2018 AGM when Kev took over as Vice-Captain.  The Committee are confident that the members will be happy with this decision, but if any of you disagree with that please contact me to let me know.  If it appeared that members were not happy with this decision then we would need to quickly arrange an Extraordinary General Meeting to discuss further.  Given how close we are to Captain's Drive-In it is likely that it would have to take place early on the same day, before the Drive-In takes place.

However, if I do not hear from anyone then please be on the 10th tee at 08:45 on Saturday to watch Kev smack one down the middle/hook one out of bounds [delete as appropriate!].
