OUTGOING PRESIDENTS REMARKS
PRESIDENT 2021 AGM REPORT
October 2019 I was asked by our Rabbits committee if I would be interested in the position of President of the HXPRCGA for 2022 which I accepted.
I spoke with David Greenwood and accepted the role as Vice President elect to President elect Alan Murray then COVID hit us in March 2020
Decision was made in the light of COVID that 2020 year would not take place and President elect Alan Murray and myself would officially take office in 2021, unfortunately Alan Murray decided not to take up office so I went from Vice President elect to President elect.
HXPRCGA AGM took place via a zoom meeting on 18th March 2021 where I was elected President, what a start to my presidency, very strange time trying to arrange our events not knowing if things were going ahead or not but managed to book all dates for our competitions and our Annual Dinner.
Sam Hall Salver-held at Elland in June,Roger Heap Trophy held at Halifax Bradley Hall in July and my away day at Shipley Beck Foot GC in September all these events were well attended and my thanks go to David Greenwood and Past President Paul Greenwood for sorting out scores and cards and of course our Representatives for promoting the events.
My highlights of my year are many but when things didn’t go to plan we came up with a alternative ,away day meal canceled because they lost their caters so we had bacon sandwiches with chips that was a first !!
Presidents Dinner and Prize Presentation held at Elland GC in November was an excellent night with entertainment from singer Sam Oliver and Saxophonist Gary Richardson, a very enjoyable evening and well attended the raffle held on the evening raised £0.00 which I would like to propose that our association donate to MS Society which is my designated charity.
My year in office has been a great privilege and honour and I would like to thank the Association for the opportunity, special thanks to David Greenwood Secretary and Ian Black Treasurer and I also would like to wish President 2022 elect Keith Aldridge all the best for his year in office.
I send my sincere apologies for not attending tonight but playing golf in Mauritius
