2019 JAMBOREE REPORT

by Sandra Paul - YVLGA Captain 2019


Northern Team
Back Row: Karen Jobling, Cath Rawthore, Carol Helme, Maureen Richmond, Julie Wheeldon, Gill Mellor, Bet Sworowski
Front Row: Caroline Berry, Barbara Laird (Vice Captain), Audrey Pattison (Captain), Ruth Whitehead (President)

The 2019 Vets Jamboree was held at The Northamptonshire County Golf Club on Tuesday 6th to Thursday 8th August and I was very proud as Yorkshire Captain to have 3 of our players selected to represent the Northern team, Karen Jobling, Julie Wheeldon and Bet Sworowski. Also included in the Team were Caroline Berry, Cath Rawthore, Mo Richmond, and Gill Mellor, all from Cheshire, and Carol Helm from Lancashire.
The match format over 3 days is, 3 foursomes in the morning and 6 singles in the afternoon. Myself, President Jo, Vice Captain Karen and Treasurer Helen were there giving our support on behalf of Yorkshire.
The weather was surprisingly better than the storms forecast on the first day with just a couple of heavy showers and a bit of thunder that passed over quickly, and we went on to beat Scotland by 6 matches to 3.
The second day brought perfect golfing conditions and we played the South, again we won, this time by 5 matches to 4.
This meant it was all to play for on the final day, The Midlands were also unbeaten, but had more game points than us, so to lift the Miller Sterling Salver we had to win.
The morning weather was scorching as was the golf and after the morning foursomes we had a lead of 2 matches to 1, therefore we needed 3 matches from the afternoon play.
The afternoon singles were keenly fought, but unfortunately we couldn’t manage to secure the 3 wins and we were runners up and collected the Tony Moffat Quaich.
Thank you from all the Northern supporters to Captain Audrey Pattison, President Ruth Whitehead, Vice Captain Barbara Laird and of course our fabulous team. It was an absolute pleasure to be involved and to watch the outstanding golf played all week. Well done all, it was indeed a very exciting Jamboree.
Good luck Barbara next year in Scotland!

NCVLGA Championship (20th to 23rd May)

This year it was the turn of the YVLGA to host the NCVLGA Championships at Rotherham Golf Club.

What an amazing week that was.......

It’s hard to tell you the amount of work and organising it takes to host a championship like this, but we did it and did it brilliantly.

Special mentions have go to Karen Leake and Patsy Rochester who worked from dawn till dusk every day making sure everything ran smoothly, Helen Duckett for everything from treasury things to website, and of course our President Jo Somers doing anything and everything.  To Sarah Arrowsmith for choosing the raffle prizes and Penny Holroyd for selling the tickets.  To Rotherham Golf Clubs’ Lady Captain Jan North and our own Julia Smith who have worked with us and coordinated everything perfectly, not to mention the fabulous flower arrangements. To Rotherham Golf Club, from the bar, to the catering, the referees and the Pro Shop, just brilliant. Also, last but not least, the NCVLGA Secretary Julia Tate and Treasurer Lesley Barnes, who always work tirelessly for the Association, and of course the Captain Audrey Pattison and President Ruth Whitehead. 

The Championship Dinner on the Tuesday evening was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with super food, great camaraderie and a very amusing speech by our NCVLGA Captain Audrey Pattison.  The Captain then made a very special announcement, Julia Smith was named as the NCVLGA Captain for 2021, a very popular choice and many congratulations from us!

On to the golf........ Tuesday, the qualifying round had 96 entrants, the sun shone and the course was in excellent condition. Yorkshire had 7 of the 16 players qualifying in the championship flight, Karen Jobling (who finished top qualifier), Sue Dye, Julie Wheeldon, Mary Pat Moore, Ann Flintoff, Pat Wrightson (also had best gross in the over 65 category), and Bet Sworowski.

Bet got to the semi final, beating Karen and Julie along the way in very close and exciting matches. Congratulations everyone.

In the second flight Julia Smith, Angela Morris and Elaine MacGregor qualified. Julia and Angela made their way to an all Yorkshire final and Angela went on to win the match and the trophy. Well done all. 

A great Championship for Team Yorkshire!
