Hampshire Hackers Golf Society
Held: Wickham Park Golf Club on Friday 12th January 2018. 7:30pm.
Matthew opened the meeting at 7:30pm, welcoming members and their guests.
Adrian mentioned membership is still very healthy with 56 members and he noted that 62 guests had come along, which in turn kept our numbers up. This was an increase on the previous by 14. Adrian stressed the importance of sending an email if you are to play an event and not to text or simply inform. This way there is an audit trail for him to follow to ensure members are added to the eventys.
Pete Stubbs presented the books to the members present and supplied them with a print out of the income and expenditure of the Society's main bank account. (for security reasons the figures are not shown here). He had also bought the actual books in for anyone present to check through.
Hon Handicap Secretary:
Ray reminded us again, that if we were cut shots last year for winning etc they will be returned 12 months on. It was also the responsibility of each member to notify Ray directly if their club handicap had altered in any way and to do it prior to an event, as they would not be changed until afterwards unless the position gave more shots than allowed.
There was no outgoing Captainís report, as Kevin Dye was unable to attend the AGM due to being unwell, but best wishes were sent to him.
David Bailey said a few words to include how proud an honoured he felt to be our Captain for 2018. He mentioned that the Captain's Day event was already booked and woiuld be at Arlesford Golf Club in June and that he hoped our members would be able to attend.
Election of Officers:
Matthew asked if anybody else would care to stand for one of the Officer positions. There were no additions or withdrawals from the committee and the existing committee were unanimously voted in. Members were reminded that the committee also put together the charity day. The committee stands at 9 members. These are Matt Fox, Adrian Knight, Pete Stubbs, Ray Cook, Terry Caister, Brian Kirby, Kevin Dye, Tommy Frampton, Richard Knight
Richard Knight was nominated for Vice Captain at last year's AGM and so that stands for 2018.
Ray ran through the list (as shown under the fixtures page of this site). It was decided to start organising the charity day in February again. Our goal is to raise anothr £5,000+ for the two chosen charities.
The two chosen charities for last year had both been presented with their cheques and were deeply grateful. Kevin Dye managed to get oneof the presentations into the Portsmouth News.
There were 6 charities put forward by the members and these were:
Winchester Community First Responder Group proposed by Kevin Dye
MacMillan Nurses Portsmouth proposed by Tommy Frampton
Abby's Heroes proposed by Ray Cook
The Rainbow Centre proposed by Roy Challinor
The Roberts Centre proposed by Matt Fox
