Lady Captain’s Quiz raises £442 for NEWSAR

Lady Captain’s Quiz raises £442 for NEWSAR


It was a great night in the clubhouse last Thursday as over 70 people joined in the Lady Captain’s Quiz. Members and guests enjoyed the entertainment and a buffet while learning about the work of Susan Kilday’s chosen local charity, NEWSAR (North East Wales Search and Rescue). NEWSAR is staffed entirely by volunteers and like all British Rescue organisations has to raise all of its funds itself. As well as traditional mountain rescue it assists emergency services with searches for missing elderly, teenagers and children, flood rescue and even animal rescue. The team brought along a Land Rover Ambulance, which attracted a lot of interest from guests.

The clubhouse was buzzing with a sparkling atmosphere. As the Lady Captain pointed out, “I’d like to thank the members who did so much to make this a success and I appreciate particularly the contribution made by Mike Brady and John Towns who ran the Club bar so efficiently and cheerfully on such a busy night. Thanks also to those who gave prizes for the raffle.”


The quiz itself was won by a team of Ruthin golfers, Roger Edwards, Robin Wilson, Bob Ellis and JC, despite a zero score on the golf questions, just ahead of one of the teams from NEWSAR. Marion Henshaw guessed correctly thnumber of tees in the jar: 233.

Seventeen Ladies had braved the conditions and twenty three had attended the lunch. £55 had been raised by guessing the length of drive for her nominated charity. The Ladies Xmas dinner had been rearranged for late February.

  1. AOB

The Captain reported on his attendance at the DGU meeting to discuss the response to the questionnaire sent to members. 531 responses had been received with 37 of those coming from Pwllglas members.

A new initiative was being developed using facebook and twitter to promote the DGU and each club was requested to nominate one member to be their DGU representative and to have continuity in this role. All clubs were being asked to have a DGU noticeboard in the changing rooms.

The following was agreed:

  1. Ll Williams to be the DGU representative

The DGU to be an agenda item at all subsequent meetings

The Secretary to send out promotional information about the DGU to all members via e-mail.

The Lady Vice Captain suggested that we could do more to promote the fact that we were open during the winter months and increase income via green fees. The Chair agreed to discuss this with the Chair of Promotions.

C Parton reported that defibrillation training had been arranged for Wednesday 21st February at 12.30 and Thursday 22nd February at 3.30. It was suggested that a donation of around £1 per member be made to the charity providing the training.

C Parton reported that changes to Data Protection were coming in this year which may mean we need to obtain permission before sending e-mails to members or potential customers. The Secretary was asked to look into this and report back.

  1. Date of next meeting was set for the 13th March 2018.
