January Newsletter

Posted on 30th January, 2023

Well, this has been a busy time since our last issue. We have held the State Foursomes at Moore Park and two other Metropolitan events at The Coast and Windsor. All these reports are included in this newsletter. We also held our 2022 AGM in November. We did achieve the numbers required. These came from those who joined us on zoom and those who attended in person. The meeting went well and the report of this will be in the February 2023 newsletter. This will give the VWGA committee ample time to discuss the issues raised. It was also nice to catch up with anyone who wished to stay for lunch in the club.

The 2023 tournament program is on our website at: https://vwgansw.org.au/tournaments/. We have a busy program with 8 metropolitan tournaments commencing on 20th February at Bayview (entries closing on 24th Jan), 5 country tournaments commencing with Bowral on 6-7 th February (entries closed), and 1 outer metropolitan one day event at Wollongong on 29th May. I hope there is something that tempts you to join us and we’ll catch up on a fairway soon! 

On the kind invitation from Kristen, Cronulla’s Vets Delegate, I was able to join in the celebration of the 100th birthday of Muriel Wills. Muriel joined Cronulla on the 2nd December 1963 and took to it like a duck to water. Muriel has represented the club over the years in various events, including Grade and Golf Australia events where she and her partner won the foursomes, etc. Muriel is also a life member at Cronulla and still plays 9 holes of golf and insists on walking. Unfortunately, what might stop her in her tracks is macular degeneration. Muriel was very happy with the gift of a $100.00 voucher which I was able to present her with from the VWGA. Muriel is also a 30-year member of Cronulla Women’s Bowling Club and never misses the chance to get out on the Cronulla greens, playing weekly without fail. An amazing lady!

Vets News November 2022

Posted on 30th November, 2022

First let me thank Virginnia Hewitt for standing in for me whilst I was on my overseas trip. Always good to be away but lovely to come home.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel yet another tournament, this time at Lakeside. Oh, for a normal year again. We did manage to get the Metropolitan Championships in, as was featured in the last newsletter. The State Foursomes at Moore Park will be featured in the next newsletter. At least the weather was kind to us.

The AGM is coming up on Wednesday, November 23rd at 10.30. Hopefully, we can get a quorum. To help achieve that, Delegates can either attend in person or join us on zoom. This was successful at the previous AGM.

The 2023 Tournament programme is ready to be finalised. So hopefully we can get it onto the VWGA web page and Facebook soon, and of course it will be emailed to all delegates. Don’t forget to keep those news items coming in, significant birthdays, hole in one’s, etc. We have a big spread of clubs over NSW and lots of ladies are interested in your stories.
