Adopt a Green
As you will have noted from the email during the week, members are invited to put their names forward to “adopt a green”. This will involve repairing pitchmarks on a particular green and raking the greenside bunkers every time you play. To volunteer, put your name on the “adopt a green” sheet in the bar. There will be a prize every month for the most improved green/bunkers.
Paying Next Year’s Subscription
Now is a good time to consider making some down payments on your subscription for next year to avoid having to pay the whole amount in March. You can make payments towards next year’s subscription at any time in the bar using you GUI Card. You can choose how much you’d like to pay and make as many payments as you want – just ask any of the bar staff for details.
Find the Joker
Last week’s winner of the Find the Joker draw were Sean Furlong, Mick Malone, Harry Reinhardt & Bill Hurley. For the second draw in a row the winners had chosen an envelope that had already been opened. They still win €30 and the jackpot is well over €3,700. The next draw takes place on Sunday 19th October. Entries cost €2 and are taken in the bar. Thank you to all who support this fundraiser.
