Notes of previous meeting, and review of action points.
i. Notes from the previous meeting approved.
- 2 meetings were held on the 1st Sept, to explain the proposed Unified course. 16 ladies in the afternoon and 3 in the evening. Very positive meeting, trial cards will be drawn up and suggested that they will be used at the ladies Tuesday role up. Brenda has spoken to Alan to see how the 6th Tee could be made less challenging when playing off the black. The 18th is more difficult, as they can’t at the moment get a mower over the carry to give an even cut. Will look at getting a working group/ committee together to look at the proposed unified course.
- New jumpers. Brenda will put a letter together and send to the committee. The colour chosen will be for the next 5 years.
- Quote now received for £365 for the cupboard.
- Results from the survey have been put in the ladies changing room.
