Dear Ladies,                                                            1st November 2018

I'd like to start by congratulating Sue Ashworth on an excellent two years as your County Captain: she will be a hard act to follow, but I am delighted that I have that opportunity.

There are a few brief messages from yesterday's AGM that I would like to share.

I have chosen to support two charities over the next two years - Workaid (based in Chesham) and Thames Valley Air Ambulance (based in Stokenchurch).

Workaid tackles poverty by renovating unwanted tools of all sorts, including sewing and knitting machines, and supplies them to specific projects in Africa to enable disadvantaged people learn new skills and become self-supporting. Not only will we collect funds for the charity, we will also arrange opportunities at some events for you to clear out your cupboards of surplus wool, material and haberdashery...and of course unwanted tools.
Thames Valley Air Ambulance provides medical and paramedical services at the scene of an incident, and then speedily transfers the patient to the appropriate hospital, increasing their chances of survival. On average they are called out 6 times a day to locations not easily be served by regular ambulance services.

Workaid will be having a Charity Golf Day at Gerrards Cross, my home club, on Friday 14th June and I hope that some of you might like to come to that event. Details will be on the County website in the Spring. Apart from the Charity Golf Day which is specifically for Workaid, I propose that all other funds raised are split equally between the two charities.

I would like to highlight just a few:-

The County Lunch will be at Gerrards Cross on Wednesday 27th March - there will be an opportunity to play 13 holes before lunch for the early birds. Sara, our Head Chef, is excellent so I hope lots of you will come to that.
The County Championships will be run across two weekends in 2019. The 36 hole qualifying rounds will be played on Sunday 12th May (combined with the 18 hole Seniors championships as usual). The matchplay knockout stages to find the overall County Champion will be held on Saturday and Sunday 18th/19th May. We are very grateful to Burnham Beeches GC for allowing us to try out this weekend format, which will enable our working ladies and juniors to enter without taking time off work or school.
• We are planning a Gala Golf Day at Gerrards Cross on Friday 26th July, open to any female member of a Bucks Club to come along and enjoy a day filled with golf-related activities.  A flyer about this event can be seen click here:- BCLGA Gala Golf Day.  Keep the date free.
• Our summer meeting will be at Harpenden GC for Wednesday 10th July, which is relatively accessible from different parts of the County and comes well recommended. It will be the usual 3 ball alliance format.

All event details will be on the County website in due course.

Our new website is nearing completion thanks to a lot of work by Anne Terry and will be operational before Christmas. We hope you will like the new format. We are at the stage now of finalising the initial content. When it is ready, we will do a changeover from the current website to the new format; This will mean that the website is off-line for a short period, whilst switching from the old one to the new one. The web address will remain the same.

Finally, we are encouraging you all to "opt-in" for news emails - under GDPR we cannot just assume that you want us to contact you about golfing matters! Another form to complete - but very easy and quick to do. You can do it online on the existing website (under Latest News, Keeping in touch). This service will start when we have gone live with the new website.

I look forward to seeing some of you for mince pies at the next Delegates meeting which is on Wednesday 5th December at 10.30 at Buckingham GC.

Best wishes,

Gail Sharp
(County Captain)
