AGM & Prize Giving 2016
Joanne Free has been busy playing all over the country and further afield playing as an individual and representing Scotland in the European Girls Team Championship (where she captained the team) and the Girls Home Internationals. This is Joanne’s last year as a Junior and will be going to Minnesota University in 2017.
Joanne came along to the Prize Giving and thanked Wendy as Junior convenor and the committee on behalf of the Juniors for all their support and hard work.
Joanne also brought along her East Lothian Young Sports Person of the year award
Emma Chapman and Grace Crawford carried of all the Junior’s silverware.
Grace won the Spring Meeting and with it the Junior Championship, the Summer Meeting Scratch and the Summer Hole & Hole.
Emma won the 1st handicap at the Spring and Summer Meetings and the prize for the Two best Net Scores.
There was a good turn out for the AGM and prize giving and after the Prize Giving the prize winners gather on the stairs for the customary group photo.
At the front clutching their prizes are Jane Herd (County Champion), Keren Ward (Runner up in County Championship), Janet Fairweather (winner of the Summer Hole & Hole) and Mary Lou Watkins (Winner of the Connie Lugton Scratch Prize at Spring Meeting and Winter Foursomes).
Also present are Janette Laing (Championship Handicap Quaich), Jean McNeill (Bronze aggregate), Stacey Cameron (Scratch aggregate) and Dianne Brown (Silver net Aggregate).
This year the County took over responsibility for the Babe Zaharias Competition which was run jointly with Gullane Ladies GC. The competition was a great success in its revived stroke play format and was over subscribed. With the assistance of Gullane GC who gave us courtesy of the course and Principal & Prosper who sponsored the prizes the magnificent sum of £3,400 was raised for the Macmillan Fund. Barbara Biggart and Nicky Black (Captain GLGC) presented the cheque to Macmillan before the Prize Giving started.
