2024 PRESIDENT 
David Cocker
Hebden Bridge G.C 

PRESIDENTS REMARKS:

I am greatly honoured to have been given the opportunity to be President of the Halifax Past Rabbit Captains Golf Association for 2024. Can I firstly thank our outgoing President Ian Thomas, for giving us a memorable and enjoyable year. May I also thank our Secretary Joe Coulter and our Treasurer Graeme Britteon for all of their hard work in the last year, especially as they are both new to their roles. Despite the challenges Ian outlined with the weather, we all pulled together and completed our competitions and I look forward to a productive and most importantly enjoyable year for us all. I have already booked my away day which will be at Keighley Golf Club on September 8th and I look forward to seeing as many of our members as possible for our annual trip. 

Kind Regards, 

David.

12. Subscriptions & Competition Fees:

The Committee propose that no increase is to be made to the subs and competition fees for 2023 and will remain at:

Membership: £3.00

Foundation: £4.00

This proposal was agreed.

 

GB raised the question of whether it was time to review subscription and competition fees. As currently association accounts were not as healthy as they should be. A group discussion followed and a vote was taken on removing subscription rates but increasing competition entry fees to £10, half of which would go into the prize pot with the balance allocated to association funds. The result of the vote was unanimous to go forward with this option.

Sam Hall Salver: - Sunday 4th August at Hebden Bridge G.C.
