Lions Weekly News 4th December 2017

From DG Lion Nigel Folkard
May I please urgently request all EA Lions Clubs  ,to return the Redistricting Consultation forms to MDHQ They have only had 17 EA forms to date returned, the closing date is the 31st December 2016 This is just over a quarter of our Clubs that have responded to, what could be very significant
So please make this a priority, to get these forms back, to support EA
At the Council of Governors at our meeting in January 27-29th we will discuss the feedback from the redistricting consultation forms, these findings will form the basis of a redistricting resolution, that will be put forward at the MD Convention 21-23 April in Blackpool. This will be the opportunity for Lions to vote for ,what could be significant changes .
Thank you

Fellow Lions I would ask ALL Presidents or Secretaries in our District to pass on to ALL Lions Members Interested
This is for all golfing Lions in our District;
As many of you are aware we have in the past organised the Don Peech Golf Competition on the Friday of our convention weekend, and it was felt this restricted numbers a) to those who attended the convention, and b) was dependant on the weather and amount of light available for that time of year.
In answer to this I have now arranged a Golf day to be held on Wednesday 17th May 2017 the venue will be Ufford Park Woodbridge and is open to all Golf enthusiasts in our District.
The Address is Ufford Park, Yarmouth road, Melton, Woodbridge, Suffolk. IP12 1QW
I have reserved the 1st Tee from 12.00 until 14.00 so far until I can clarify numbers when we can tailor it a bit more.
I have agreed the best package with the golf club as the Classic Golf Package which includes: coffee & bacon rolls, 18 holes of golf and a one course lunch.
The itinerary recommended would be:
From 11.30 – Coffee and Bacon Rolls
From 12.00 – 18 Holes of Golf from 1st Tee  (individual Stableford Full Handicap)
From 17.30-18.00 – One Course Lunch, served in the Sports Bar Area with Presentation of the Cup and Prizes for Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin
Nearer the Time I will notify those who wish to take part of the menu and Tee off times etc.
To cover the cost of the Golf Day and Prizes I propose a Cost of £39pp with any excess funds being donated to one of the centennial projects probably the Hearing Dogs.
If those interested could please make cheques payable to LCI District 105EA and mark on the back golf competition, and then send them to me.
If the sender could also enclose with the cheque His or Her Club with First & Last names of the participant.
If paying direct into bank, please ensure they e-mail to let both the District Treasurer and me know, also advising the Club and Name as Above.
