Captains’ Inauguration Evening

After a fantastic buffet provided by Rob Crookes, Mr Captain Tony Cook and Madam Captain Jill Rowett handed over a cheque for £4649.76 on behalf of the members of Pontefract & District Golf Club to the Prince of Wales Hospice.  The cheque was accepted by David Stewart, Chief Executive of the Hospice, along with Tony’s daily contact Jill Auty, the Hospice Canteen manageress.  Tony thanked all involved in making his year as captain so enjoyable, and then introduced the club captain for 2018, Stuart Charlesworth.  

Stuart complemented Tony on his year and thanked him for the help given by Tony and his family, then went on to explain his hopes for the coming year, before introducing incoming vice captain Jim Roberts.  

Outgoing ladies captain Jill Rowett then called upon incoming ladies captain Elizabeth Newbould, who accepted the Lady captain’s brooch.  Elizabeth then called forward her vice captain Janet Coates.

Seniors captain Roger Blatherwick introduced the 2018 seniors captain Graham Addison before incoming Tigers captain Martin Dobson took to the stage to outline his plans for 2018. Keith Young was introduced as Tigers vice captain. John Atha then thanked all concerned during his year as Rabbits captain before introducing incoming Rabbits captain Ian Leeman.

In closing, Stuart announced that for personal reasons Elizabeth and himself had nominated the Yorkshire Air Ambulance as their chosen charity for 2018, and tongue in cheek suggested of members that any unwanted Christmas presents could be used for future raffles.
