Captains Report

Germiston Country Club

April Captains Report final

Once again Nomads was blessed with a crisp Autumn morning for our monthly game.

The day ended with magnificent views over the Germiston Lake and surrounding areas.

To the members and Committee of Germiston, a thanks for the superb course. I had the

pleasure of playing with Dave Coetzee and Glen Dalton along with the sponsor of the

day Trevor Cook on behalf of Victor Fortune Limited.

A big thanks goes to Victor Fortune, Alan and Dudley Meredith, for their continued support

of Easterns Nomads- from monthly games, to the monthly tote,” Victor Fortunes

eagle”.

Congratulations to Dave Pickering and Pieter Kruger on your 15 year ties, as well as Stuart

Anderson on your 100 Game badge. A special well done to Terry Bailey having

achieved her 10 year tie as a member of Easterns Nomads. From all the Nomads, past

captains as well as myself, I thank you for your continued support and dedication to our

club. To Your team, Lindsay, Cheryl and Cathy - well done on your professionalism and

support to not only Terry, but Easterns too.

Ruan Palm has joined Easterns as the Europcar sponsor member along with Lloyd

Msombi. We welcome you to Nomads and hope your Nomadic career is long and enjoyable.

Nomads has evolved, especially over the past 5 years from an institution that generally

fed itself and continued within boundaries set over the past 55 years. Times are changing

however, and, Nomads as a Club, needs to introspect and come up to speed with

these changes and challenges. Social media incidents have highlighted just how far behind

certain working structures for this fantastic club really are. There are numerous

things that need to be changed/updated, be it playing formats, constitution or Nomadic

commitments. These are things your new committee as well as Natex have realised and

will have to deal with in the near future. As easy as these words are to express, the implementation

thereof can be difficult! Its far better for changes to be pro- active rather

than re-active!


Captains Report

Germiston Country Club

Furthermore, should you and I as Eastern Nomads members want our club to flourish, it

is very important to do what we can do, in our small way! This can be achieved by introducing

new guests, new blood, young blood into our ranks. Without this happening, we

will slowly see the decline in numbers throughout Nomads. Easterns, its time we lift our

game, bring in this new blood and support Hector in growing our fantastic club.

I challenge every Easterns Nomad to invite one visitor during the year and ensure his

experience of the Nomadic camaraderie, encourages him to become a prospective

member.

As this is my last Captains report, I wish Hector all the best for his year in the hot seat.

To the new committee members, enjoy, and I hope the experience will be a small window

into the workings of a Nomads club. To my committee, once again thank you for

your support, help and guidance over the past year. There is no “I” in team and you

were a great team to work with!

In closing my year off as Captain, it only remains that I thank each Easterns Nomad for

always supporting me in whatever I requested. From sponsoring, buying tickets, away

games and at Nationals, you, had my back! I thank you!

I leave you with my motto for the year

TO ENCOURAGE THE GAME OF GOLF AS A SOURCE OF SERVICE. TO MEET OTHER NO-

MADS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, ONCE A MONTH, TO BUILD FRIENDSHIPS WHILE

PLAYING GOLF

Yours in Nomads

Mark Ablett
