To all members of Kirby Muxloe Golf Club
I’d like to start off by thanking the Captain for asking me to try and replace him and to Council for their support.
I would also thank to thank members for their support, a lot have said some nice things and I hope to have the chance to reward that support.
I would like to continue the good work that this year’s Captain and his merry band have achieved and hope that I can be equally successful.
My proposal for the staged improvement of the bar was accepted by Council and that project has now already begun with several members offering both financial and practical help in bringing the project to life. These improvements are mainly to make the clubhouse a nicer place to be but also I hope you will all use it more often so it will help the club feel a fuller place and a nicer place to bring your family and friends. However, I don’t want to lose the current support we get so I have spent much time discussing the alterations with members and the team’s ideas seem to have been universally accepted and liked.
It would be good to see more people at all the social events this coming year. The Concert on the Range was a great success again last year and Nev has done a tremendous job running the Social Committee over the past few years but it would be great for someone, or a small group, to take over when he comes to step down in twelve months’ time. His experience is invaluable and it would be great to tap into it for the future. It would also be great to have a spread of age groups on Council and if we get a few, it would not be too taxing so please think about it. Whoever does this will have mine and Council’s support.
I’m trying to do a few different things this year as far as entertainment is concerned so please come and support me and I hope I don’t upset too many traditionalists! If there are any ideas you have for evenings, please contact me and I will try to help.
Helen and I look forward to spending time with you all over the next twelve months and I look forward to another great year.
Mick Halfpenny, Captain
