 After 7 days in Madeira to start the year it came as a real shock to land back at Leeds/Bradford to a temperature of 2 degrees!  Even more of a shock to get back to Richmond and find that everything was covered in a layer of frozen snow.  No golf here at the moment! 

However it was lovely to hear from Karen (last year's LC) that she had managed to play 4 holes of golf earlier this week following her knee operation.  Amazing recovery and obviously warmer at Oakdale.

I do hope that you have all managed to have a good festive season and continue to stay well. 

Please remember that Club entries need to be with Patsy by March 1st so get your names onto those sign up sheets. 

Reps, please remember to prioritise those entries before you submit them - we really do want to include as many members as possible in our competitions.

I know that April, when our season gets underway, will come round very quickly and am keeping everything crossed that having the cold weather now will mean that Spring will be very kind to us. 

With very best wishes to you all.  Penny

 

 Wishing all members of the YVLGA a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY AND HEALTHY 2022. 

I look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to our events next year. 

with very best wishes Penny

Following the trophy presentation, the rest of the AGM was completed within the hour.  Minutes of the meeting will be available on the website in the not too distant future.

I would like to express my thanks to Ros Lumb and Karen Leake for all their advice over the last two years, and to all those members of the Committee who work tirelessly on your behalf behind the scenes.

Lastly, welcome to our new President, Gill Travis, and my Vice Captain, Pat Wrightson, both of whom I think will be well known to you.

A full list of those on the Committee for 2022 is on the website.  

I look forward to meeting more of you during the coming year.
