In preparation for the pre-season winter coaching I forwarded a letter to all P&K clubs requesting handicap records of all ladies and girls with a handicap of 7 of better who would wish to be considered for senior squad coaching over the winter at Gleneagles Golf Academy. By the clubs responding we are ensuring that no player with potential will be excluded.

A huge thank you now goes to your Handicap Secretary's who took the time to forward this information to me. A meeting will be held on December 3rd prior to our full Committee, with the selectors who are Captain Dawn Butchart, vice Captain Lenore Kyle, Match Secretary Shona Leighton and President Liz Miskimmin and all successful squad members will be notified. This year, more than any other, we are in a fantastic position of having a large number of players with a handicap of 5 or less! Great news for P&K!

I still await contact from Murrayshall, Pitlochry and Muckhart Golf Clubs therefore if you are a member of the above clubs and you have a handicap of 7 or less and your information has not been sent through another club, please request your information be sent to myself as soon as possible.

Congratulations go to squad member Sal Shepherd (Blairgowrie) who has just returned from a trip of a lifetime. Sal has just climbed 5895 metre high Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The climb took 6 days and was in aid of Scottish SPCA. When I spoke with Sal she had this to say 'For Scottish SPCA we , so far as there is still money coming in, have raised over £51,000. By the way I am 2nd from left, front row.....I tell you that as half my family didnt recognise me!!'

This is not the first trip Sal has embarked on she has also completed the Inca Trail for the SSPCA as well. I think you have excelled yourself this time Sal. Well done and keep up the good work.

(Perthaps we should have Sal in charge of our fund raising!, What do you think Sal!)
