NEWS AND TEE TIMES
Latest and upcoming competitions and events
There were only eight players this week, mainly due to ill health, so instead of The Waltz they played The Military Two Step which could be played in twos. It was also only played over fourteen holes. The winners were Margaret and Jennifer on an excellent 41 points with Beatrice and Joung second on 35 points. Eileen & Ro were 33 and Linda and Sue had 31 points.
On Tuesday, 6th December there will be a Team stableford game (best two scores) off full course handicap. Please sign your intention to play on our TDL WhatsApp chat as usual.

EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING
We will be having an EGM on Tuesday 10th January at 2.30 pm after a nine hole game to finalise the disposal of club funds and assets.
AGM AND PRIZE PRESENTATION
There were nineteen members in attendance for this important AGM. Sadly we have been looking to the future of The Darenth Ladies now that our numbers have depleted due to lack of new members and declining health of some of our existing members. It's no longer viable to run competitions when quite often there is a turnout of only a few players. Half of our playing members are on the Committee and have been for a long time so it's difficult to appoint new Officers. It was suggested that the way forward would be to continue to play as a society group so we can stay together. Therefore there was a resolution proposed that 'The Darenth Ladies' would be dissolved with effect from 31st March and no membership fees collected for the year 2023. The motion was carried with a huge majority vote with only two members abstaining. Therefore, from 1st April we will still play regularly but without official competitions. There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting at some time to decide on how we wind everything up. It is a sad day for those of us who started as The Bromley Ladies many years ago but time marches on! Gill has kindly offered to stay on as Lady Captain until the end of March and Jason has agreed that our tee times will continue as normal, including the nine hole players.
After the meeting we had the Prize Presentation and there are some photos here (click to enlarge).
