Stockport Golf Club Portland Golf Presidents Cup/AGM

The day started with a telephone call from the Stockport Green Keeper to our Treasurer stating that the Course was closed due to over night snow which was surprising as no snow had fallen in our local area. The Green Keeper was told that it was too late to inform all the attendees as they were traveling from far and wide and could not be stopped. He agreed to open the Course and carry out a Course inspection at 0930hrs to see if it was playable. 30 keen Golfers duly arrived and tucked into our Coffee/Tea and Bacon Rolls whilst the Green Keepers did their best to clear the Fairways and Greens for us to have our game. Another Course inspection was carried out at 1030hrs and the Course was deemed fit to play so off we went. As the day progressed the weather warmed up and everybody enjoyed their game. After the games were completed we all tucked into our 2 Course meal, which was then followed by our AGM. The outgoing Captain, Paul Sinnott, welcomed everybody to the event but then had the very sad task of announcing the sudden death of one of our long standing member and friend Mr Phil Lancaster. Every stood and a minutes silence was observed.

Our new Captain, Ernie Rowlands, was then handed the reigns and commenced proceedings. The outgoing Captains Charity, the British Heart Foundation, had been presented with a cheque for £156-00, and had sent a thank you letter which was given to Paul. Ernie Rowlands announced that his Charity for the Year would be Parkinsons Research for which he aims to raise as much money as possible. During the AGM it was announced that our new President would be Mel Garner which went down really well with all in attendance. The Treasurers Report was read out and as no propositions had been received the meeting was closed. The Captain announced the date and Venue for the next event, the Spring Plate, and wished everyone a safe trip home
