“The Club would like to extend its thanks both to those members that stood for election and those who demonstrated their confidence in the nominees and exercised their right to vote, thus ensuring the election of a new Vice Captain and Club Officials as a whole.


The first meeting of the newly elected Club Officials will be held on shortly at Desert Springs and we look forward to welcoming them and working together, with the aim, as always, to build upon the foundations created by previous Club Officials for the benefit of all.”


The “Captain’s Drive In”, to welcome incoming Captain Richard Dunphy and the newly elected officers has been scheduled for Friday 5th April. Entrance forms are available at the Club Reception in the normal manner.
