A Walk in Switzerland and the Captain’s Charity23rd October 2013

 Posted by AB  |  Posted in General

Dear Sponsors

I have finished my 'High Route' walk from Chamonix to Zermatt. It was a pretty hard trek - 13 days, 115 miles, 9 passes close to 10,000 feet and a total climb of over 40,000 ft.  But I trained well and when it was at its most difficult we just had to go slower.  It was a wonderful trek with very good company (many Canadians, Americans and Australians were attempting it) and spectacular scenery.  We had a real feeling of achievement although there is a nagging thought that if someone my age can do it then it can't be that difficult.

More importantly I raised £515 for the Captain's charity (Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children) and I would like to thank all my sponsors for their kind generosity.  If anyone else would like to make a contribution would they please give their donation to Amanda in the office.

Needle tining greens11th October 2013

 Posted by CR  |  Posted in General

We will be needle tining the greens to 3" depth at 8mm diameter on Monday 14th to 15th October 2013. The reason for this work is to aerate the greens to keep the surface dry during the wet Autumn months and to reduce outbreaks of disease. There will be minimal disruption to the surface and the holes should close over and back to normal by Thursday.
