Weekly Bulletin - Wednesday, September 5,  2018

Thank you to our Trivia Night Game Hosts, Dave and Lorraine Tomalty seen here with the winning team of Brydon, Wynn and Wightman!

The DCC is pleased to announce that Duncan Campbell has graciously agreed to take on the position of Honourary Chair. As you know, Duncan is a member of the third generation in the Everson-Campbell family in Dunany and has previously served on our Board in several capacities. Here are a few words from Duncan at this year’s Prize-Giving as he assumes his new role …

 

“For many years, Ross Leslie, who chaired the Honours Committee, captivated the Club's annual Prize giving ceremony with his encyclopedic knowledge of the Country Club and the trophies that are here before you today.

 

I have been asked to follow in his footsteps as chair of the Honours Committee but I will admit that I have very big shoes to follow and, in fact, I cannot replicate what Ross did. In my view, this is still and always will be Ross' show and I will be making a recommendation to the Club to that end.

 

As we head towards our 100th anniversary, we have an obligation ensure that his legacy and that of other members who have made significant contributions to the Club are remembered by all of us.

 

The trophies that you see before you today are part of the Club's history as are the names of those golfers who have been talented and fortunate enough to win them over the years.  For some of us, the names may have little import but for others, the names conjure up memories of playing on this course. These memories are the other part of the Club's history. 

 

So, yes, we compete for trophies to which we may hope to add our name but more importantly, we create memories that we can keep forever whether we get our name on a trophy or not.

 

I will now ask the captains and their able assistants to make the award presentations.

 

Thank you.”

Dunany Fall Classic Saturday, September 8th!

 

A reminder to submit your team for the Fall Classic Tournament - shotgun start at 3 p.m. Last year was a lot of fun and I hope to see returning teams this year.  Don't forget to give your team a name, choose a captain and show up in team colours! Please email KevinHavill@gmail.com to register as soon as possible.

 

The format is a 4-person team with handicaps used to score the two low net scores per hole. You can create your own team or send me an email if you are interested in playing and we'll do our best to find a spot for you. 

 

Food is supper for $10 per person. If you're not planning to play, but want to come for the food, please send me an email so we can account for all people. 

 

Lastly, on Friday night we will be handing out prepped scorecards to each team in the clubhouse.  The bar will be open and teams are encouraged to come down and mentally prepare, or at least generate a bit of rivalry! Come on by after 8 p.m. (if nobody from the team can make it, then you will be able to get your scorecard before the shotgun start at the course).  

See you Saturday!
