December Captains Report

As would be expected, this report contains many Thank You’s that need to be said ……

The finale of the 2018 playing is now a memory. Fortunately, we were blessed with fantastic

weather a 30-minute impromptu drinks/ weather break, as well as a nearly full

field for our Gold Cup. Thank you to all the guests and visiting Nomads for their attendance.

Benoni Country Club once again made the Eastern Nomads feel really welcome. A big

thanks to Darren Millington and his team for all their- hard work behind the scenes as

well as on the day! A special word of thanks to the members who gave up their Sunday

afternoon field for us and to greenkeeper Deon Becker, for presenting a great course

and set up for us to compete on – especially for our finalists. A special word of mention

to the staff that helped clean and sort out all the trophy’s – it was a long and timeconsuming

task making sure they were all bright and shiny for the prize giving.

A big Thank you to Graeme Wood and Albert Spalding from Cargo Motors- our Sponsor

for the day. Cargo always go above and beyond with their sponsorships throughout the

year. Thanks to their generosity we can rely on having Taylormade balls for our two

club competitions, busses when needed, advertising in our magazine and any other request

that might arise during the year.

Congratulations to the winners of the different competitions that make up our Gold

Cup ! To our Golfer of the Year P W Botha (sorry you could not stay for prize giving), well

played and congratulations on this great achievement. Thank you to Terry Bailey and

Dave Hoehler for keeping everyone updated regarding the standings in the different

competitions. To those Eastern Nomads who run these competitions during the year -

well done and thank you for your help and support. Thanks must also go out to Norman

Leys, from the Golfers Club Edenvale, for his assistance with the discounted prices for

our Prizes for Gold Cup. Our prize giving’s would also not be the same without Derick

Lindsay’s attention to detail and efficiency! Thank you Derick for fulfilling this arduous

task so well!

A word of thanks too, to our National Sponsors for the Divisional Winners prizes Taylormade

and Glenbrynth for their donation of special whiskeys. Finally, to Imperial MFC for

the fantastic prizes for the Imperial Challenge – Nomads salutes you all!

Having a morning and afternoon field for Gold Cup means our table ladies really go the

extra mile for the Nomads. To Terry, our Match Secretary, having a 06H30am start and a

19H00pm finish on Gold Cup day, makes for a really long day! We are really lucky to

have such a great team of ladies supporting us and we thank you all!

On behalf of my committee, I wish all Eastern Nomads and their families a fantastic and

blessed Christmas! May 2019 bring you health and happiness. To those who will be

travelling - be safe on the roads, in the sky or on the sea. Buckle up and enjoy the special

family time!

See you at Pollock Park on the 19 th of January!

Please be mindful of the mission statement for 2018

ER NOMADS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, ONCE A MONTH, TO BUILD FRIEND-
