The day started at 06:15 with the first band of helpers arriving in the car park in glorious sunshine to set about their various tasks. Everything had been so well planned before the day it seemed to flow well with everyone know-ing what was expected of them. The course was in absolute pristine condition and appreciated by all the players. The Captain entertained all the Committee members and the early helpers to a great English Breakfast which was very much appreciated.
Enid was well enough to be able to host the ladies lunch and it was lovely to see her looking so much better. We all hope that it did not set her back too much because we all miss her.
The evening started with the reception for guests, the committee members and past captains prior to the formal proceedings. Everyone was seated by 20:15, which is one of the earliest for a number of years. If the noise level is anything to go by then we think a good time was had by all! The Captain gave his address in the most relaxed manner. In it he referred to his boys! These were the assistants he had had working with him here at Chesterfield who had gone on to be professionals in other clubs. At the end of his address he was given a standing ovation.
The winner of the Captain’s Prize was Peter Howitt.
All the other prize winners will see their results on the web page together with the photographs taken of them receiving their prizes.
After the prize giving the Captain then introduced another of his guests, Wayne Cooper and Chairman, Terry Woodhouse presented him with a watch in recognition of his 25year service to the Club (he has in fact been with the Club for 27years).
Captain’s Extra Day
Again our Captain was blessed with the weather as the threat of rain never did materialise! As on the Sunday players were given a glass of Bucks Fizz to help them on their way by the Captain; but the format was much more relaxed, playing off yellow tees and Stableford not medal! Photographs were taken of all the players on the first tee with the Captain and they will go on the web for a short time should you wish to see them.
After playing they all returned to the Club house for the meal and presentation of prizes.
The winner with the best net was Myles Hancock.
Should anyone wish to have a copy of any of the photographs please see Trevor or the Captain who will arrange for one to be printed in exchange for a donation to his charity.
