An end to another disrupted year. Fingers crossed for 2022.
The 2022 VWGA programme is now available on our web site. The program and entry forms have been sent out to all Metropolitan clubs.
Unfortunately, there was a small error regarding the days we are playing at Yowani. It should read Monday/Tuesday. Sorry. There was also a technical glitch when submitting the entry form electronically on 1 December. This has now been remedied and there are several places still available, but you’ll need to be quick!
It never just rains it pours. For all of you that have been caught up again in the floods we are thinking of you.
I am very sorry to say that we are losing Lesley Paradine from the VWGA Committee after a ten-year stint. Lesley has been an extremely valued member of the committee and will be greatly missed. I hope that we can lure her back as an occasional volunteer to do some special tasks in the future.
The VWGA Committee wish you all a happy festive season, and a safe and healthy 2022.
Stay safe and good golfing.

We are getting ready for a new year! The 2022 VWGA programme is nearly finished and should be ratified at our next committee meeting. Look out for it next week on the VWGA website and Facebook. We have 8 (eight) Metropolitan, 4 (four) Country & 1 (one) Out of Sydney tournament. So let us all cross our fingers, toes, legs, etc.
The VWGA Annual General Meeting that was cancelled this year is now set down for Wednesday 23rd February 2022. All delegates will be sent the relevant information over the next few weeks. If there is anything you would like to put on the agenda please notify us before Friday 14th January.
The VWGA are desperately looking for new committee members. This involves coming into the office in the CBD once a week and helping with general office duties. Is there anyone out there who has recently left work and looking for something to do? What would be better than following your passion and helping at a golfing organisation? If you would like to join us next year please post, email, send by pigeon, etc your nomination before Friday 28th January 2022.
The office will be manned, ladied (?) by a skeleton staff during late December and the end of January. The best way to contact us during those six weeks is by email: email@example.com
We are hoping to get one more Newsletter out before Christmas – so keep your eyes on your inbox!
Stay safe and good golfing.

Things seem to be looking up, especially in Sydney, and it looks like we might be on the way to freedom on October 11th. I hope that you have all managed to stay well and your golf hasn’t been too disrupted. I was sorry to have to cancel the VWGA Annual General Meeting that was set down for November. Hopefully we can transfer it to early next year. There will be no change in the committee positions at this moment. Next year’s programme is coming along nicely and will be available on the website before Christmas. We had nine cancelled tournaments this year, so we are hoping for better in 2022. Please continue to give us your wonderful support.
See you around the traps and take care everyone.
