2018 Annual Dinner - Presentation to Maurice Manning

As you are no doubt aware, Maurice has decided to step down from the HWM Committee after 8 years of service. Maurice has done a tremendous amount of work for and on behalf of the Highwaymen. He has been Treasurer (twice), Captain in 2014/15 and responsible for collating & producing the weekly rollup results and the Parish Notices - which many believe is the best information source in the Club - plus many more activities too numerous to mention.

On your behalf, the Committee decided to recognise Maurice's invaluable contribution to the HWM with a gift voucher which was presented at the Annual Dinner on December 14th 2018. When Roger announced the presentation at the Dinner, Maurice deservedly received a standing ovation from all present.

Maurice will continue to help out in the background but is now going to step back a little.

Thank you, Maurice, for everything you have done over the years in helping to run the Highwaymen section so successfully.

2018 HWM Christmas Dinner

The Highwaymen’s Annual Christmas Dinner was held on Friday 14th December, this is the Highwaymen’s main event of the year and as usual was a roaring success. The eighty five Highwaymen and five guests attending the event had a great time, witnessed by the laughing faces in the photographs (in the Galleries submenu). The traditional Seat Raffle was won by Boyd Cook and Bruce Cornwell just pipped Tony Tilly to the Heads and Tails prize. Many of the HWM (and even some guests) were fined for misdemeanours they had been guilty of during the year, all of which added to the fun of the evening.

A slightly different approach to the traditional raffle of "bring a prize to win a prize" was tried this year, with tickets drawn from the "Costello Bowl". This raffle together with the other proceeds of the evening go the the Captains Charity, in all over £800 was raised.

A special presentation was made to Maurice Manning for all the magnificent input he has given over many years in the Highwaymen. Maurice has held the position of Captain, Treasurer, weekly parish notices and much more, but now he is stepping down from the committee. He will be greatly missed, but I’m sure we’ll still find something for him to do!.

The final event of the evening was of course the presentation of the Awards, where the Winners and runners up for all the competitions throughout the year were invited up to collect their Trophies and Prizes and have their photographs taken to mark the occasion. The prizes were presented by Chris Dalton, the HWM Captain for 2017/18. You can see all the photographs taken during the evening in the Galleries menu.

Buggy & Electric trolley restrictions over the winter

Over the winter, if the course is wet, then there may be restrictions on buggy or electric trolley use. See the twitter feed at the bottom left to check the 'status' of the course (Green/Amber/Red). Check this table for any restrictions that might apply.

Bottom line - electric trolleys with winter wheels and push/pull trolleys (with any type of wheels) are not restricted at any time.

There will be plenty of events for all to participate and we’ve already seen applications posted for senior club open matches, don’t leave it to late as they get filled up quickly.The Eclectic is well underway with three rounds played and another scheduled for the 17th January. Winter pairs is progressing nicely, mainly due to the good weather we’ve been experiencing, may it continue.

The implementation of the new R&A Rules are underway and the Rules Booklet is available in the pro shop. Our club captain, Lee Wood, has suggested a repeat of the new rules presentation that was held at the club in December. This is scheduled for the 21st February after the Texas Scamble rollup and will be open to all.
