Captain’s Report for 2019

Captain’s Report 2019

Well, how do I start with my Captain’s end of year report, so much happened during this time which pales into insignificance with recent events.

During the year we enjoyed various functions within the club such as, away days, race nights, the popular quiz nights and of course the annual BBQ, not to mention some of the team games concocted up by the competitions secretary.

The Seniors Open was one of the most successful that I had experienced during my six years membership at Carswell and this was undoubtably due to the hard work of the Vice Captain, so thanks go to Brian For a job well done.

 We ended the year with the presentation / Christmas celebrations with eighty one members and their guests attending, Terry Clark has posted the photographs of the presentations onto the website for all to view.

During my time has Captain I owe a great deal of thanks to the committee members who supported me during the year and they truly are the backbone of the Seniors, their efforts make everything happen seamlessly whether it’s a weekly roll up, away days, financial management or inter club matches for which they gain little or no appreciation for giving up their own time and on occasions money.

As we now all move onto different clubs I’m confident that we will look back and appreciate what we had at Carswell, the membership was well supported and certainly in my experience a place that I enjoyed playing every week, it also provided me the chance to socialise with everyone, however I certainly believe in the saying “never look back” and I’m sure  Brian with the support of Nick Tomaszewski as his vice captain along with the continuance of the committee members the seniors will flourish going forward.

I understand that more than 35 members have now signed up for the next year with a few more waiting in the wings, this proves that there is a will to ensure the section continues, for those yet to decide I have also attached a form to this mail.

You can find the constitution for the new set up on the seniors’ website in the documents section.

It is important to note that should anyone wish to be kept in the loop that they sign up by the end of December as only those registered will receive any communication regarding games and any other events.

The financial results of 2019 will be published as and when finalised on the seniors’ website.

I look forward to meeting up with everyone when the seniors play together in the New Year.

As this is likely to be my last communication to everyone it only falls on me now to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
