2015 AGM and Opening Muster

Hello RPGC Members,

Welcome to the 2015 season.

It's just 3 weeks to the AGM now on Sunday March 22nd and I need to let you know of a slight change to the timetable for the day. In order to get the AGM business completed as soon as possible so that we can get on the course for the opening muster I have decided to order the tea and coffee for all those attending at 9.30am and to start the AGM at 9.45am. This, I hope, will enable us to aim realistically for a tee-off at around 11am for our golf competition.

I need to impose a closing date of  5pm on Friday 20th March so that I can organise the teams and starting tees etc. Would you please let me know by email as soon as possible if you wish to enter for the opening muster and/or attend the AGM. The event itself will be a competition similar to those played at the opening and closing musters last year.

It will be a team competition over just nine holes and will be a shotgun start. Handicaps will NOT be applied and so every player will play off scratch. This will allow Golf Club members who have not yet got their official handicap to participate. The organisers will compile the teams from the list of those entering so as to achieve a fair mix of low, high, or no handicappers in each team.

Each player will mark his or her own card, with a maximum score of a triple bogey (6 or 7) for each hole. The team captain will sum the totals and divide it by the number of players in the team (expected to be 3) to provide the team score. The team with the lowest team score will be the winners and will receive prizes. We will meet in the House after completion of the rounds, hopefully not much later than around 1pm, to reveal the winners and present the prizes.

Your emails indicating that you wish to participate will be acknowledged fairly quickly. You will learn who your team mates are going to be on the morning of the competition. As usual we want to encourage lady members to play in this competition. It's a gentle introduction to the season.

Fingers crossed for a nice sunny day.
