AOB for this meeting:
PM asked for winners photos from golf days for the website. GA offered to do this at Oundle.
RS asked if we should re-introduce NP trophy but it was decided we’d stick with a sleeve of balls. RS also mentioned a discussion about a Spain 2022 tour t-shirt that evolved into a decision that we’d look at a new society shirt for all. RS will investigate cost & demand.
SF asked if NP3 could be resurrected but the following discussion showed an additional NP or NP2 would be preferred. SF suggested a challenge on the 18th at each course. ST suggested looking at the numbers playing on a month by month basis to justify the cost. PF suggested funding the prizes as Captain to continue the tradition and support the supplier.
ST asked for volunteers for the Fun Run in aid od Macmillan on Sunday 26th June. If you can help please let ST know.
Date of the next meeting: The next meeting will be the AGM with the date to follow.
