The green is now closed. Thanks to Ian and everyone else who helped with the work on and off the green – hollow tining, seeding and top dressing the green, amongst other duties.
The club’s AGM will take place on Sunday 6 November in the Pool Room of the Woodbourne Pub – 7.30pm start. Any notices of motion must be submitted to Paula by 29 October. Motions can be sent to 37 Palatine Road, Douglas, IM2 3BQ or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
To help speed up the evening’s proceedings, it would be helpful if all teams could elect next season’s captains prior to the evening.
Codes of Conduct
This year the club signed up to the IOMCCGBA Charter and, as part of the terms and conditions, the club has to have a code of conduct – a copy of the Adults and Young Players codes of conduct are attached to this newsletter. Please have a read through and familiarise yourself with these codes.
