This Sunday sees the annual Charity breakfast being held in the Clubhouse, the Mount Vernon organising Committee are asking members to help them raise funds by buying raffle tickets from behind the bar, they are also seeking donations that can be used for the raffle or to Auction. If you have anything that you wish to give, please leave them behind the Bar for Hugh Roarty’s attention.
With around 120 people attending this event, the organisers are hopeful once again of raising a huge target figure. Please give them support.

For all members who have and pay for a hook in the trolley shed you will be aware that we are introducing a permit scheme to aid the administration of trolleys in the shed. This small plastic permit should be attached to your trolley at all times and a Cable tie will be provided along with the permit. These permits will be colour coded and a different colour will be provided each year. The permits are numbered and will correspond to your hook number. The permits will be able to be collected from the office from Tuesday, 2 January 2018 at 9.30am members should know their hook number and this will be checked against the information we hold. If you have your trolley in the shed and don’t pay for a hook please remove your trolleys immediately. A waiting list exists for trolley hooks and anyone wishing to have their name appended to this should contact the office. Following a period of time to allow for the distribution of the permits, an audit will be carried out and all trolleys without a permit at that time will be removed (notification of this date will be provided in advance) . We require the cooperation of members to assist us in providing the ideal administration of this area. We are aware of the light that is out in this area and that the area could do with a good clean. Arrangements are in place to resolve both issues.
Many thanks to all members and guests who attended the Annual Prizegiving to congratulate and celebrate with all the winners on their achievement.
The evening was a great success for which we have to especially thank Ailsa Davies for not only the many months of organisation but the arrangements on the day.
Thanks also to David Doig as Master of Ceremonies, Elinor Philp in assisting Ailsa with the trophy arrangement, Evelyn Hogg in expertly presenting the trophies, Dougie Russell for the photography, the “Marigold Squad” of Alison Paterson, Jacqui Louden, Liz Bisset and Aida Crosbie in making sure all the trophies were shiny and bright and to the bar and kitchen staff who looked after us all on the night.
Congratulations again to all the winners.
Congratulations to Scott Fraser and Keiran Cantley for their successes in the East of Scotland Alliance meeting at Royal Musselburgh on 18th October. The field of 90 players included 13 professionals and 3 trainee professionals.
Following solid rounds both players recorded winning scores in the Handicap and Scratch competitions.
Scott Fraser won the Handicap Prize along with the Andrew Oldcorn Trophy by recording a 72 less 4 handicap for a Net 68
Kieran Cantley recorded a scratch 68 and was required to share the prize with Lloyd Saltman after the two players couldn’t be separated through countback.
In the order of merit both players are very much in the hunt with Kieran lying 2nd in the scratch and 3rd in the handicap, with Scott sitting 2nd in the handicap section.
Good work lads and hope you keep it going throughout the season.
