Captain’s Log - Thanks to all the guys who gave a hand at Sunday’s working bee - we cleared the greenkeeper’s debris from around the base of trees, so the local rule of a free drop will come off the board in time for the Men’s Club Championships, which start 18th August. Bellingen Ladies will be hosting 6 Pennant matches here on 20th August, so Mad Monday players please push your start times back to after midday to allow the visiting players to finish. Many thanks!
