We’re looking forward to the final game of the outdoor season tomorrow. We’re starting at 1.00 pm and playing straight through finishing with the Ploughman’s Meal than Ann M is preparing. Ann also has raffle tickets in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and will willingly sell you more tickets tomorrow.
The club house is set up outdoors and indoors with socially distanced tables with 6 place settings. Please do not be tempted to move another chair(s) to make 7 or 8! 6 is the magic number! We ask you to stay at the same table for the meal and not to swap around between mains and desserts, however tempting it might be.
All the usual disinfecting procedures will apply and please bring your own hand sanitising gel and face masks – which I am sure you have about your person permanently now! If you are spectating and want to bring your own chair, that’s fine. Although the forecast is good, I believe there will be more wind swirling around, so please make sure you have something warm to put on. The bar will be open throughout and Jane can serve hot as well as cold drinks.
Gordon and his diminishing band of merry men (by the look of the crossings out on the sheet) will be putting the outside green to bed on Wednesday, starting at 10.00 am If you can spare an hour or two, it would be a great help. There is some lighter work – like hosing down and drying the mats and removing the markers and numbers from around the green – to heavier task like bending down and lifting the rubber matting from the ditches. Working together to get this done will make the job easier.
Remember Mary Poppins (who is not available unfortunately) ?
In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.
You find the fun and *snap* the job’s a game.
And every task you undertake, becomes a piece of cake.
A lark, a spree. It’s very clear to see ….
That a cup-of-tea-or-pint-of-beer helps the medicine go down etc.
There will be a lager or a beer or a cup of tea at the end for helpers!
