Notts County Ladies Waltz the day away at CMGC
I would just like to say a big thank you to CMGC for hosting the Nottinghamshire County Ladies event yesterday.
I received good comments from the ladies in the competition for both the course and catering facilities. While the course was regarded as being tough in view of the rough being quite long, special thanks should go to the ground staff for all their hard work. Many ladies appreciate what is involved and the difficult weather conditions we have had recently. The greens were particularly singled out for praise for both speed and running true.
Thanks also to Sally and her team who looked after us all very well with many compliments received, it was a long day for her.
The halfway house was a great relief for the ladies, with a welcome tea or coffee provided by Marilyn Musson, Kathryn Harrison, Marian Price and Roz Marvin. Thank you to them all for giving up their time yesterday.
Lastly but not least, thanks to the members who gave up their course for the day for a Ladies County Competition, your support of the ladies is much appreciated.

Sally announced as new catering service provider
Many of you are already aware that with effect from Friday 1st December, SallyAnne Hobson will be taking over as the club's new catering service provider.
Sally comes with a wealth of catering experience, latterly managing the catering services for Derby Grammar School where she and her team of 6 staff served 550 plates of homecooked food each day.
During the negotiation stages for the Supplier Agreement, Sally impressed us with her passion to grow the good work that Nick has put into the club and to provide good quality service offerings that will attract new diners into the clubhouse.
Sally's first day will be Friday 1st December. She already has in place ideas for her debut catering and members should keep an eye open around the notice boards to discover what she plans on providing.
Sally is pictured here with our Captain just after contract signature and I hope you will all join me in formally welcoming Sally to the club at the beginning of December.
