Following discussions/agreement with the Board and subsequent negotiations with Shirley GC, I have agreed that the 2011 Gibbon will be re-played at Shirley at no cost to the society…there will however be an agreed ‘Green Fee’ payable by all participating members at a rate TBA by the 2010 Board in order to bolster the warchest for the 10-year celebrations.
Lovely work and could the WD please communicate via the website that we no longer require the 3rd July to be pencilled into members’ diaries this year -ta.
And I’m Supposed to Be Happy with More Board Pork?
Far be it from the WD to editorialise stuff, but is this really good news (or excellent work as the Presidential email endorsement would have it)? So you played in the cold and the mud of the Gibbon, at a ridiculous price, with no food and your compensation is that more money is going into Society Coffers? We were promised some free World Cup golf, but no, we will waste more money on Elegant Regalia for the Board, or at worst go towards feeding local urchins at the end of an under attended AMG – this place gets more like the Catholic Church every year! There had better be strippers AND burgers at the 10 year bash or the board will risk losing the support of the WHV media!
