SLGA VOLUNTEER DATABASE

The following letter was received from Karin Sharp SLGA. If you are interested in volunteering please complete the Volunteer Registration form, which can be found in the Pages on the RH side of the blog, and return to Karin:


As part of an internal review of the 2014 playing season we have taken a decision to review our processes around SLGA Events next year and would like your assistance in building a database of local volunteers. As you will be acutely aware from your own competitions and operations of your County Association there is a huge reliance on the goodwill of a volunteer base and at SLGA we have perhaps not been as smart about this as we could have been and this is something that we are looking to address.

At our major events eg Scottish Championships which operates over a number of days, it is often a challenge for the host club to provide sufficient volunteers to staff all aspects of the tournament. Our thought is to supplement that by building a database of volunteers that we could contact depending on location of the championship and make better use of the abundance of skills that we know are out there at County & Club level. How we would see this working in practise might be as follows:
Scottish Championship at Monifieth in May 2015 – club would probably provide some volunteers to assist, we would contact local volunteers from the Angus area in the first instance and then look at neighbouring County volunteers (where travel distance was minimal) to see if we can fulfil all required duties, which might include registration, recording, live scoring, ball spotting etc.  In 2015 some of our major tournaments are being played in Angus, Ayrshire, Dumfriesshire, Perth & Kinross, Stirling & Clacks a number of which are fairly central venues!

As outlined, what we wish to do over the next couple of months is to build a volunteer database, primarily for assistance at the various tournaments that we run but would not limit interest to that if individuals have other skills that we could utilise and your help in spreading the word would be much appreciated. I am keen to stress that we are not looking to take any volunteers away from the County Associations but what we are looking to establish is a list of lady golfers who might be interested in volunteering at one of our events if it is taking place in their local area for a day or part of a day.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 30th OCTOBER 2014

The AGM of Perth & Kinross Ladies County Golf Association took place at Craigie Hill Golf Club.  Captain Carol Muir welcomed the 42 ladies in attendance and conducted the meeting in her own inimitable style. Prize Giving then took place and below is a collective photograph of all the prize winners who were present.




We were sad to receive the resignation of our President Ella Benzies who has been in the post for 4 years and worked with three Captains. Ella fulfilled her last duty by presiding over the Presentation of Prizes and was presented with a memento of her time in office. 



We are delighted that Pam Drysdale, a Past County Captain and a well known face at County meetings, has agreed to take over as President. We wish her well in the role and look forward to working with her.



A special presentation was also made to Carol Lambie who served as Junior Convenor from 1998 to 2013 - a marathon effort.


Our thanks to Craigie Hill Golf Club for hosting our AGM again and providing us with a delicious supper after the formalities of the meeting.

The minutes of the meeting will be posted on the PAGES on the Right Hand Side of the Home Page in due course.

SGU/SLGA AMALGAMATION GROUP

Handicap League AGM – will be held at King James VI gc on Sunday 12th October at 3pm. The Loch Leven’s Larder trophy will be presented to the winning team. Tea/coffee and cakes will be served at a cost of £4.50/person.

The purpose of the Handicap league is to encourage singles match play between clubs within Perth & Kinross who either don’t have enough low handicap players to field a team in the Scratch League or who have enough lady Members to enter a team in both Leagues. As match play is such a great way to improve your golf it is hoped that the Handicap League will also be a way of introducing up and coming players into the art of competitive Match Play.

Any club wishing to become involved in the club next year is welcome to come along to the AGM on the 12th October or to contact Moira Lumby directly.

Please contact Moira Lumby to book your place – 01821 640519 or moira.lumby@btinternet.com
