County Captains' Am-Am
BURTON ON TRENT GC - Sunday 10TH September 2023
My Captains Day Charity Am Am was held at Burton on Trent GC on the 10th September 2023. After a week of glorious sunshine the weather was threatening thunderstorms for that day. After a lot of organisation to ensure we had a successful day and an amazing half way house I was understandably fearful it would be a wash out. Fortunately we only had a few showers which was a welcome blessing as it was a very humid and sticky day
The day was supported by 22 teams -88 players from all over Derbyshire and I very much appreciated your support from both the clubs and the County reps alike. I had a fabulous day and it was great to see everyone chattering and enjoying themselves throughout the day, popping into the half- way house for Pimms and Cake, there was much laughter and enjoyment. I had visits from special fiends Betty and Brenda who thoroughly enjoyed watching you all tee off on the 10th during the afternoon. It was so lovely to see so may stay for the presentation following the meal. I had and I still am receiving some tremendous feedback.
I had a lot of support that day and would like to thank everyone for the help, too many names to mention all for this report. So, collectively thank you to the BGC ladies Section for their generous donations of cake, help at the half way house and the beautiful flowers in the locker room, to our Starters Mr Captain Shaun and Mr Vice-Captain Peter. To the registration and raffle Desk Ladies Cerri and Shelaugh, to Gary and the Pro shop and to our amazing hospitality staff for keeping us fed and watered. And Finally to Burton GC for all their support not just on this day but throughout my two years as Vice Captain and County Captain.
The Charities I am supporting this year alongside our Lady Captain are The Footprints family and Staffordshire Women’s Aid. I am pleased to announce the AMAM raised £1500 for these deserving charities. Thank you all for your generosity, buying raffle tickets and entering the putting competition.
I do hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did.
As my term of office is nearing the end I would just like to say what a special year I have had and I have seen some amazing golf. I am excited about the future of Derbyshire Golf we have some wonderful talent coming through.
Finally, I wish my Vice-Captain Fiona Roberts and her Vice-Captain elect Mel Davey the very best wishes for 2024.
