The date of Thursday, November 29th has
been fixed for the planned social event in the Golf Hotel. It will feature
Gordon Adam’s excellent video of the August 24th celebrations, a
presentation by Trevor Williamson on his Simpson family reminiscences and the
tremendous history of club making by his forefathers in the Dalhousie garden
workshop. ‘Hands on’ putting with some of the ancient, beautifully hand-made
clubs will be offered for members to use on an indoor mat, and a light buffet
of sandwiches and sausage rolls will be served. An admission charge to cover
buffet costs etc. will be applied.
The response from members to the original request
for notes of interest in attending has been splendid, so we are looking forward
to a good attendance at what promises to be a first class – and hugely
enjoyable - evening. ‘Kick-off’ time will be forwarded once arrangements with
the hotel are completed. Meantime - put the date in the diary!
