Orchardleigh Ladies enjoying their Lady Captain's Day
We are well into the golfing season and on Saturday, 4 June, Jackie held her Captain's Day. Jackie is following in her mother's footsteps, Janith Small was lady captain in 2005.
Following tradition, the lady memebers had decorated a golf buggy for Jackie to drive round the course on the day. The buggy was adorned with balloons in the ladies colours, horse memorabilia and photos. Jackie, as well as being a keen golfer, also helps to organize the dressage at several local horse events including the Longleat horse trials. Keeping it in the family, Jackie's father, Mike Small, was the starter for the day.
The sun shone and for a change we palyed a Florida Texas Scramble. It was most enjoyable fun day followed by a sumptuous 3 course carvery served at the golf club. A raffle was held and raised over £175 for Jackie's charity Hope for Tomorrow - a local project raising funds for a mobile chemotherapy unit.
Prizes were awarded to the following: 1st - Pat Pitt & Sue Langelaan, 2nd - Rachel Priddle, Mary Lock & Pat Jones, 3rd - Anne Regler, Di Norris & Mollie Stebbings. Nearest the pins: Sally Tucker and Pat Jones
After the prize presentation, Liz South, the vice-captain, gave Jackie a bouquet and thanked her for a lovely day on behalf of the lady members.

You can either put your donation in the charity boxes on the bar or desk or you can put it in an envelope, clearly marked, in the Ladies Competition box.
I hope you all have a great year, and I look forward to seeing the handicaps tumbling!
