PGC Newsletter 28.10.2020

AGM AGENDA: As previously reported, it has been necessary to bring our AGM forward by 1 week to Wednesday 18th November. Eligible members will receive the agenda and reports via email in the next few days.We are looking for a Secretary, a Club Captain and committee. It is imperative that we obtain a Secretary – we cannot function unless we have someone in this role. Without a Secretary, we cannot apply for or receive a Bar licence. Think about the implications of this!


We have firewood for sale. Get your wood in ready for next year! We have pine at $250 and gum for $300. Prices are for 3cubic metre loads, delivered. Please contact Gerald Smith, 376 5516.


CONGRATULATIONS to Lisa Cotton who represented Manawatu-Wanganui the weekend of 10th/11th in the Sybil Green quadrangular at Te Ngutu just north of Hawera. Along with our team, the other teams are Wellington, Hawkes Bay-Poverty Bay and Taranaki. There are 8 women in each team, and they play each other in matchplay. Results were mixed, with Manawatu-Wanganui being placed 2nd equal with Wellington.

 BUSH CLASSIC 2021 – The weekend of Bush Classic is changed from what it is in your programme – it has been moved to the next weekend, 16th and 17th January. If you entered or expressed interest in 2020 you will automatically receive notification, if your email is registered.
