As the Date is Getting Nearer I would Ask all Lions Interested in Participating to Contact me ASAP. To date I have 14 participants but I believe there are more Lions/Lionesses who would like to take part.
I will be attending the Golf Club on Monday 24th to finalise Details so IF you are interested Please contact me as below by 30th April Latest. I enclose original Details for Info.
“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.
I have arranged the 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 Straightest 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.
