Welcome to the August newsletter.
This month we start with the Annual General Meeting, which due to COVID-19 restrictions we are having it hosted in person and online via zoom. I would like to thank all the committee for their hard work over the last 2 years, in such a challenging time trying to get some sort of normality within the club, even though we are also hosting a state titles during the pandemic. I want to make a special mention to Brenton Schier for all the work he has done over the last 12 months or so presenting at the club meetings a run-down of the club history. Thankyou Brenton.
If you are reading this before the meeting it’s not too late, to put your hand up for a committee position, remember this is your club and we are always encouraging newer members to join the committee and so on.
With the COVID lockdown we have experienced in July, that has thrown our Presentation night plans out the window. Thanks to Jim Bishop our presentation lunch will now be held on Sunday 15th of August at 12.30pm at the Knox Club in Wantirna South.
We have a very busy couple of months ahead and hopefully we can have these events go ahead without any restrictions, this includes on the Saturday 4th of September our clubs 50th Birthday Celebrations at The Mulgrave Country Club — starting at 6.00pm. Then the following weekend on Sunday 12th of September, we are having our Interclub Challenge with the Melbourne chapter. This will be a treasure hunt at Hanging Rock followed by BBQ Lunch. (ok insert sledge here) — We will be leaving the Club Rooms at 9.00 am and meeting at BP Calder Park at 10.00am for a 10.30am departure.
Then after the interclub challenge which we will know doubt win, we have a short break of a few weeks where we will be then hosting the 43rd FX FJ State Titles on the weekend of the 16th and 17th of October at the Heritage Golf & Country Club / Yarra Valley Lodge, which will be an excellent weekend.
As it is now August, just a friendly reminder for those yet to pay their membership fees that the membership fees are now due. The club banking details are on the front page of the newsletter and a direct deposit is the easiest way to pay at the moment due to changing times
Anyway, that’s it for me for the month.
If you are on the road, please drive safe.
