AGM Follow-up …

Yesterday’s AGM went well, despite being on Zoom rather than at Curl Aberdeen. Following the event, our President Ros (Roy) emailed this vote of thanks to share with everyone:
Many congratulations to you, Lorna, and Karen, Olive, and Carol, for the very smooth running of the County AGM this afternoon. A great success. My goodness what a lot of work you have all had to give us such a good update.
Not only the AGM today, Lorna, but all the hard work you and the committee have had throughout the year on our behalf.
I am sure everyone felt pleased and positive to hear how you have plans for the golfing season ahead. We have all missed seeing our golfing friends so much, and whilst realistic that that there may be unforeseen changes, we all appreciate very very much the time you have given so efficiently and successfully to County matters. 
With all our thanks, from Ros.
Thank you, Ros, for those kind words.

I would also like to share three short extracts from my 2020 Captain’s Report about personal successes during 2020:

Shannon McWilliam was selected for the 2020 Curtis Cup Squad. The Curtis Cup is postponed until August 2021.

Rachel Mathieson broke the course record at Newburgh-on-Ythan with an amazing gross score of 70. The previous record of 73 was established in 2003 by Ros Dunsmuir and Sheena Wood, then equalled in 2010 by Donna Pocock and in 2013 by Lynda Carnie – all County members.

Sammy Fanthorpe (Sammy Leslie before her August lockdown wedding on the course at Murcar) was selected as the winner of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open #MyKeyWorker Award for her positive impact on the community during lockdown. Sammy won a round of golf with Catriona Matthew at The Renaissance Club for herself and her guest, Rachel Polson.

Congratulations to Shannon, Rachel, and Sammy.
