State Mines, 8 th June 2019- Captains Report

Our change of date and making the Sate Mines game a afternoon field paid dividends.

Sunny reasonably warm day, a contrast to the rain and cold. My fourball consisted of

the long-standing club captain, 1) Jan Delport, and an interesting day was spent with

him showing us the changes to course that have taken place in the last year, 2) Brian

Rees our sponsor for the (in a personal capacity) and 3) NJVC Neill Malherbe. It really

does make one very proud to be part of an organisation that has people like Brian Rees

as a member. A true gentleman that carries Nomads in his heart. He is a pleasure to play

with and could quite easily be used as an example of what we stand for. Thank you Brian.

A duty I enjoy as captain is the handing out of awards to members. It was great giving

Mike Lekhuleni and Dave Diesel their 200 game badges. Well done gentlemen. On a sad

note, having to bid long time national sponsor and Easterns member Phil Michaux, farewell

was disappointing. However Phil is transferring to Southern Cape and is not lost to

Nomads. I don’t have enough space here to extoll the virtues of what Phil has done for

Nomads but we wish him and his family many happy years in Knysna..

Congratulations to all the winners on the day, putting on those greens was like playing

with mercury.

Thank you to our ladies, Terry and Matthew, as usual, everything ran like clockwork. I

believe Matt has learnt quite a bit from his experience and will be putting it to good use

with SAMSON in the future. Good luck to the guys playing the Diamond Challenge

against Botswana on the 6 th and 7 th July at Sun City.

Next game is Ebotse on 14 th July AM so dress warmly. Please diarise the Memorial day

at Pollak Park a week later.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors
