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.

The Ladies Section welcomed Sue Kilday as their new Lady Captain at her drive-in on Saturday    20 January.  Seventeen ladies braved extreme weather conditions, frost, sleet and finally snow did not stop them playing nine holes in teams of three.  The victorious team were Mair Davies, Pam Evans and Eleanor Roberts with 32 points.

The ladies were greeted by Sue with a warming drink of mulled wine before playing and then enjoyed a hearty soup followed by cakes and cheese and biscuits after playing.

During her year of office Sue will raise money for her Lady Captain’s Charity – NEWSAR which is a search and rescue charity based at Loggerheads.

Thursday Afternoon Golf for 2017 – Stats Supplied by Henry Birch

By |January 4th, 2018|

Thursday Social Golf

Its probably the friendliest game of golf ever played and engenders camaraderie second only to the Ryder Cup.

Someone taking her dog for a walk on the bridleway through the course asked if we were on laughing gas when she heard the noise from the prize-giving in the clubhouse bar afterwards.

Every Thursday, golfers meet at Ruthin-Pwllglas for social golf, drawing balls out of a hat to make up teams of 3 or 4 for a better-ball Stableford. Numbers usually range from 30 to 45.
