Big weekend this weekend with wedding bells ringing in the O’Donohue household. All the best to proud parents Denise and Fox, have a wonderful weekend.

Ladies Pennant

Great win by our ladies last Friday to win the NE Bushrangers trophy - Marnie Broz, Kerry Newton, Liz Orton, Faye McLees, Ann Hazeldine & Heather Street, this is the first time Myrtleford have won the trophy. They defeated Jubilee at Mansfield and I believe that they celebrated in style last Friday evening.

Christmas Roster

I urge members to volunteer their time to look after our office over the Christmas period and in January. There is a roster on the noticeboard. We have seen a strong growth in green fees and cart hire, today we have 6 carts out, - thanks Judy.

May be an image of golf and text that says "D0 SCAM WARNING! Please be careful of Christmas scams. I ordered my wife an expensive necklace for Christmas and instead they sent me a brand new set of irons and no return address!" May be an image of golf buggy and text that says "AS I RECALL, YOUR EXACT WORDS WERE "YOU NEVER TAKE ME OUT FOR DRIVE" 9"

Good hitting, George
