Charity Quiz 2021
In aid of St. John’s Hospice, Moggerhanger
‘At the Supermarket’
Once again, a ‘brain teaser’ quiz has been compiled, this year’s subject is ‘At the Supermarket’. Each answer is related to something that can be found in or associated with a Supermarket.
Even if you “don’t do quizzes” please donate £2.00 and buy a copy. You never know you may become a quizzer or, maybe you know someone who would enjoy the challenge and would also buy a copy.
Quiz sheets can be purchased from any of the Senior Committee members: Ray Clark, Anne Harrison, Keith Moore, Steve Begnett, Nigel Turner & Ron Harris or a copy can be emailed to you.

Further to my email dated 16th December, the deadline for nominations and questions related to the 2020 minutes has now passed. There were no matters arising from the minutes and I have received one (accepted) nomination for the committee – Nigel Turner.
As such, the committee for 2021/22 will comprise…
Captain – Vacant
Vice Captain – Vacant
Secretary – Keith Moore
Treasurer – Ray Clark
Competition and Fixture Secretary – Ron Harris
Committee Members – Anne Harrison, Steve Begnett, Nigel Turner.
Other points to note:-
1. It has been agreed that St. Johns’ Hospice, Moggerhanger will be our nominated charity for next year.
2. Historically, the Senior Captain has represented the section on the main club committee. With no Senior Captain in place for next year, Keith Moore will continue in that role. If a Senior Captain is appointed, that situation will be discussed.
3. It has been agreed that more “headline” competitions should be played off plates, rather than the tee of the day. All such competitions will be looked at as they come round in the golfing year, with any amendments made clear before the competition. Changes to the handbook will not be made until the 2022/23 edition.
4. We have a full fixture list of inter club matches for next year and we very much hope to play some, if not all, of those matches. That will, of course, depend on Government guidelines both on, and off, the course.
As my time as Captain comes to an end, I would like to thank you all for your help and support during what has been a very difficult time. I’m sure we are all frustrated at not being able to play golf but that is an irrelevance compared with everything else that is happening around us. We have lost some good friends and I’m sure we are all looking forward to getting back on the course and then raising a glass to their memory.

Completion of Cards During Covid Social Distancing
With the new Covid rules. the completion of competition cards has changed as you are all aware. Examples have been available, but too many people are completing their cards incorrectly. and we will need to disqualify those who choose to ignore the instructions that have been in place since the course reopened.
Anne Harrison has prepared a guide to scoring
