President's Report & Results Cairns 3 Apr

G’day Everyone,

The weather of the past few weeks and the forecast weather, no doubt, had an effect on the field at Cairns today with only 69 players taking part in the game. The 55 men and 14 ladies were generally surprised by the condition of the course and congratulations must go to the Cairns Greens Staff for their efforts in preparing the course to the standard it was. No doubt some parts were a bit soggy but, in general, although there wasn’t any run on the fairways, the greens and surrounds were in good condition. 

Our sponsor today was STRATFORD PAINTING CONTRACTORS and the winners and runners-up received vouchers to be spent at Cairns Golf Club. Gordon’s support is very much appreciated and if you’re thinking of having some painting done, give him a call.

There is nothing much to report regarding a future Mirage game because, as yet, I haven’t been in touch with the Manager to try and organise a replacement game. The Committee would like to see it around the June – August period but that will depend on the availability of the course.

There were no new members this week and our membership now stands at 159, that is 121 men and 38 ladies. It is good to see that the ladies’ ranks appear to be increasing, with their percentage up to about 30% of our total membership.

Our next game is at Mareeba on 10th April. From listening to some general conversations, it should be in good condition.

Take care,
El Presidente”.
