We are also planning a PlayDay.on Saturday, 1st July. This will be a pairs competition , the Pellow Cup, with a session before lunchtime
The AGM was held on 20 March 2017. Unfortunately the election of club officers and committee could not proceed. Due to a number of withdrawals of candidates' applications, only four valid applications remained, and this was insufficient to meet the constitution's requirement for a quorum. In view of this, members agreed unanimously on the following resolution: "That a General Meeting of club members be held within one month of this meeting , with the purpose of re-electing the officers and committee; and that in the meantime the present officers and committee remain in office in order to transact essential routine business of the club and to arrange the General Meeting." The date of the General Meeting will be notified to members as soon as possible.
Cups were presented to the winners of the competitions held during the year. Congratulations to all the winners (listed here).
