6. Comings and goings...
a) Robyn is still on leave and returns early August.  Any general club queries should be addressed to club president Mike Suggate.
b) I will be in Te Anau from Thursday returning Monday 30 July.  Match Duties will be handled by Terry McAlister and Gail Kirkland who have been deputised with full decision making powers in the event of any match disputes.
c) It is with regret that we advise that Dan Roe is no longer employed by the club.
We will be moving to restore the greenkeeping team to three by employing another greenkeeper in time for the surge in work required with the spring grass growth.
And that's it for this week.
Good luck to those who have matches this weekend.
Thankyou to Gail and Terry for standing in my stead so that I can travel away for the Fiordland Classic.
Enjoy your golfing week.  Catch you all next week, and "go the football ferns".
