Lady Captains Away Day - Thursday 9th August 2018
27 ladies travelled to Davenport Golf Club in Poynton for My Captains Away Day. On arrival we were greeted to a warm welcome from Chris in the office.
An hour before the first group were due to play the heavens opened to this strange thing called rain!! However, we were blessed and before the first group had teed off the sky was changing to the beautiful blue colour we have been so used to seeing.
The courses was in great condition and a credit to the ground staff.
The half-way house was maned by my husband Pete and his partner in crime Joe Cumberbatch who were dressed in black tie attire serving Prosecco, strawberries and homemade cupcakes. They certainly entertained the ladies with their wit and charm.
The day was concluded with a beautiful meal, drinks and the presentation.
1st place Janet Harden 37 points on count back.
2nd place Hazel McCrady 37 on count back
3rd place Nel Boulton 35 points.
Nearest the pin on the 2nd Lisa Davies.
Nearest the pin on the 16th Jennie Flower.
I can not thank the ladies enough for their continued support and making the day so special with lots of happy and funny memories.

Lady Captain's Charity Quiz Night
Thursday 14th June saw 14 teams go head to head in the Lady Captains charity quiz night.
Our own Jeremy Vine was non-other than Jayne Baxter who was assisted by her lovely husband Andy – who has spent the last few weeks researching the questions and answers.
The Lady Captains round was on TV soaps, I’m not saying some of the questions were difficult but maybe a degree in the soaps would have helped some of the teams & I’m not just talking Palmolive!
Best in this round was Hotel Rudyard team – well done Rich I think you got most of these correct (mum Jen would be proud!)
Joking apart this was a fantastic night which raised £297 for my charities Birmingham Children’s Hospital and British Heart Foundation.
A massive thank you to Jayne, Andrew, the bar staff and everyone for your support

Past Captain Competition and Dinner (22nd May 2018)
The beautiful weather continues, and I had the pleasure of hosting the Past Captain Dinner.
It was lovely to meet the past Captains, some whom no longer play and catch up with their stories of long ago.
I also had the pleasure of speaking with the ladies on the telephone prior to the dinner who told some funny stories which I think I should keep to myself but what fabulous characters these ladies are!
After the delicious meal the winner was announced – with Net 73 on count back was Dot Cowburn (pictured on the left with Me!)
Thought for the day -- "Do what makes your heart smile"
