Captains Report November

November’s monthly game at Modderfontein saw us all hitting the fairways in sweltering

conditions! Entries for the day were good and those who qualified for the Konica

Minolta Challenge had their work cut out having to fill in two score cards! Congratulations

to Mike Fick (40 points) who will represent Easterns in the next round of the Konica

Minolta Challenge.

A warm word of thanks to the general manager Mark Bruyns and Tony Fernandes, Vice

captain of Modderfontein, for availing the course to Easterns Nomads. The greens and

condition of the course were really commendable, considering the lack of rain over the

past month. The GUR area (after the council cut a main sewerage line through the

course) is now taking shape and its pleasing to note that the rehabilitation is well on its

way. Thank you also to the members for giving up their Sunday morning time slots for

the Nomads. We really do appreciate your co-operation and understanding.

Our Sponsor of the day: Raju Kika / Liquid Telecom went the extra mile by providing

very welcome refreshments on the 8 th tee box! Considering temperatures were in the

high 30 degree mark, they were life savers! We extend our thanks to Liquid Telecom

staff for giving up their time to be there and man this watering hole! In addition to the

sponsored drinks, Raju included an extra R 500,00 per division winner for prize giving!

The 2018 Eswatini nationals are now history and once again it was a most enjoyable

away weekend. Congratulations to Nickey Minnaar on being the best South African

player at the tournament! Daryn Hall went AWOL for prize giving, so Richard Plumb and

I took turns collecting his snake killer “prizes”! Quite a haul – new shoes might be needed

by Richard and I for all the trudging back and forth!

The 2019 SA Nationals team was announced at the Modderfontein game. Thank you

Jimmy “the fireman” Sales for following the selection process in putting the team together.

The Burt Hunt Trophy is looming on the horizon Easterns, so best all get practicing!


Captains Report

CLUB

By the time you read this report, the Mystery tour will have taken place. A special word

of thanks to Rod and Jarrod Williams for all the hard work and planning they put into

these events! All entrants know that things don’t “just happen” and that the successful

tours we have, are due to great team work! We hope the “Bus-bunny barman” initiative

evolves and becomes one of the memorable traditions on these tours!

I would like to welcome Jaco Smit (inducted at Modderfontein) to Easterns Nomads!

We wish him many happy years as a Nomad!

Finally, thank you to my Committee for your continued hard work and dedication. From

organising the Sponsors brew, newsletters, time sheets, table ladies, magazine, coordinating

monthly sponsors, starting and attending meetings – without each one of

you, my task as Captain would be impossible! Lastly, to our “Minister of Finance”, Graeme

Goodridge, thank you for sorting out the deposits and transfers so that our books

balance! This is indeed a massive task. A reminder here gentlemen that Terry and

Graeme need proper references and proof of payment if they are to allocate deposits/

payments correctly! Please bear this in mind when doing payments! You will save them

a great deal of time and frustration!

Our next game is GOLD CUP at Benoni Country Club on the 2 nd of December. Please

get your entries in early! Friends and family who have official HNA golf handicaps are

welcome to play on the day. All are invited to the Prize giving after the game. There will

be a light supper available which will be for your/guests own account.

Good luck to all the Nomads who are in the running for Honours in the different annual

competitions. Final standings will be up on display at the game so you will be able to

judge how well you will need to play in order to hold a trophy for the year!

See you on the fairways!

Mark Ablett

It was a pleasure to work with the team at

Modderfontein who were efficient and professional.

The course looked immaculate! My thanks

also go to Cathy and Lindsay for the early morning

start, and all the help during the day!

Can I ask you to all enter games timeously. You

are all given ample time to enter the games before

the closing date, and Mark and I always send out

a reminder to you! This helps me with all the

preparation to enable the smooth running of the

day!

Looking forward to our final day of the year… Gold

cup at Benoni Country Club on 2 December. I

hope to see you all there!
