Mini Olympics for members

Hello everyone!

Another busy week is past and we continue the advance to 2017 at an unrelenting pace! It is really scary how fast this year rushed past. We are very grateful for the cooler weather conditions and the 13mm of rain on Tuesday night. Let’s hope we get a lot more.

We welcome the Knights of Da Gama back to Reading on Thursday (as you read this) and next week we have the Rovers Football Club and Queenshaven Golf Days here on Tuesday and Thursday respectively.

This Friday evening is fun, fun, fun! Heather and her team have arranged a Mini Olympics fun evening in the bar. Teams of up to 6 can enter and it promises to be a fantastic evening. Contact Heather for more info on 076 972 1551. Bookings for tables can be made with Roz on (011) 907 8906. Food will be a la carte, so give our fantastic pizzas a try!

Captain vs Vice Captain is taking place on the 12th November. Please put this in your diaries. ALL prize winners over the past 18 months are requested to attend prizegiving in the bar (and hopefully play golf on the day too). It is one of our big annual days and is a lot of fun. More details next week.

The Kids Christmas tree is on the 4th December at a cost of R30 per child (Sweet hamper) and R40 per adult (tea/coffee and eats). Please diarise. Also the Members Christmas Lunch is on the 18th December. Bookings are open with Roz already on (011) 907 8906.

From January 2017, The Governing Body have decided that Reading will be implementing what most clubs already have in place, namely a small levy on private golf carts for visitors and members alike. All money raised goes to a separate account allocated exclusively to the establishment of cart paths, to be built where carts are ruining the course. The idea is that the course will eventually have cart paths everywhere they are needed and this will be financed by the people who use the carts. The amounts are small. There are 2 options, namely:

Up front annual payment – R600.
Pay by round – R20 per round.

Please Note that we will be sending reminders out in a week or so about subs for next year. The increases have been kept to a minimum as we realize things are tight out there. Please, if you intend resigning, I must receive your resignation in writing before the 31st December (as per our constitution), otherwise you are liable for subs for 2017. Obviously I hope we don’t receive a single one. If you have any problems, please feel free to contact me to discuss it before you resign. We want to keep our members happy and strive to do so.

Have a fantastic week. See you all at the club.

Best wishes,
Dave and the Team
