We held our Captain/Lady Captains Drive- In on Saturday last, we were treated to two excellent Drives, first off was our Lady Captain, Collette followed by Captain Georgie, we have visions of seeing Captain Georgie competing on the professional circuit down the tracks, though time is probably against him. We would like to thank the Ladies Committee, (they never disappoint) for providing an excellent array of food and also to Pat McCabe
and his orchestra for providing the music following the Drive-In.
The Harte Peat Spring League Competition is up and running, we are currently in week 3 of the Competition with some fine individual scores being recorded. We would like to take this
opportunity to thank the O’Harte family for their continuous sponsorship of the Competition.
The 9 hole stableford repeater in honour of Lady Captain Collette McCahery was well supported and the best score came on the last day, huge congratulations to Joy “good round the greens” Cassidy with a splendid 20 points claiming 1st prize. Brid Finlay was second and 3rd prize went to Doli Maguire who beat many other similar scores on a countback.
Ladies week 4 is underway and no more scores will be posted until the end of week 6! That will keep everyone guessing as the best weekly score and the worst weekly score will be discounted. Well done to Joy Cassidy who won the best score of the week for week 3 with 20 points.
The numbers drawn on the 18th of February were 11,12,14 and 17 and there were no winners of the 5,400 jackpot now standing at 5,500. The 5 lucky dippers each winning 20 were Mary McGrory Donagh, Nuala Browne Cootehill, Jenny Boylan C/O Abbotts, Catherine Curran C/O Brian Curran and Peter Flynn C/O Tower Bar. Well done to them!
The Captain (Mr. Georgie Pugh) and Lady Captain Ms Collette McCahery takes place on Saturday next 23rd at 5pm. To honour the Captain’s a 3 Person Team Event (any combination) will be held on the Saturday, all members are asked to please come
and participate. Following on from the Drive In we will be entertained in the Clubhouse by the usual host of musicians, a very enjoyable evening is promised with Captain Georgie promising to do his party piece. We wish both Captains a very enjoyable and successful year ahead. The ladies club have very generously arranged to provide sustenance for the assembled crowd.
