Captain’s Log (Star Date: 17,01,195-589)

To boldly go where no Captain has gone before, well certainly this Captain. Email I understand, online I can cope with, Facebook “just about“, but Twitter, really!

I thought I could use this “log” (it’s not a blog and certainly will not be a vlog) from time to time to give members a little bit more news from around the golf club and by doing so perhaps a little insight into the workings of the club.

I hope to do this in a light hearted and positive way which may mean the use of aliases so as to protect the innocent.

It has been a very busy time for everyone with the season in full swing (no pun intended) especially during last month’s Championship week which went very well and finished in style with a Final’s Day with many first time winners. Congratulations again to all players who qualified for the match-play stages.

Starfleet Command (Council) held their monthly meeting last week.

Although losing 70 Members of the club in all categories ( 40 in Full and Youth) this year steady progress is being made to get new members. To date we have gained 18 new members in Full and Youth and we will again be having our special package offer available later in the year, however, excellent rates are available at present, contact David Doig our Secretary for details.

Someone tried to create a new entrance into the course at the corner of Kingston Avenue and Gilmerton Road recently by blasting their way through the wall, should have used their phaser and not their car. Early reports that it was a lady member late for the Strawberry Tea Competition have been greatly exaggerated.

We have placed an order for the replacement of many of the glazing units within the main lounge after which the view from the main deck should be a lot clearer.

Hopefully you will all now be getting used to our new website which has proved a great benefit in getting news out to members. The news items we post on the website are automatically and immediately sent out by subspace communication on our Facebook and Twitter pages and then every Friday all posts from that week are automatically rolled up and sent out by email.

So together with Spock, Uhura, Bones, Scotty, Chekov, Sulu and the rest of the crew and with phasers set to stun (reserving “kill” setting for the aliens) its warp factor one Mr Sulu.
