Captain's Newsletter

20th August 2020

Dear Highwaymen   ****  The Captain's Corner ****

Most of you already know, but some of our newer members may not, we collect from your W.G.C Member’s Loyalty Card a small fee every time you enter one of our Thursday competitions. Half, or nearly half, of this is paid out in prize money. The remainder is typically donated to the club’s Captain’s Charity and the Green-Keepers’ Christmas Box.

When the Highwaymen’s funds need a top up to cover such item as trophy engraving, these proportions may be slightly changed or the weekly competition fee may be increased to cover such expenses. Fortunately we have built up a modest surplus in recent years, so this is current not required.

At present when £2 is collected for one of our regular Thursday competitions, or £5 for one of our major trophy events, the way we are currently allocating these fees is as follows:-

From a £2 competition fee, £1 is allocated to the cash prize fund of the day, 82p to the Captain’s Charity and 18p to the Green-Keepers Christmas box

From a £5 trophy competition fee, such as this year’s Costello Bowl, £2.16 was allocated to the prize fund, £2.33 to the Captain’s Charity and 51p to the Green-Keepers Christmas Box.

Last year, we donated £1200 to the Captain’s Charity and £300 to the Green-Keepers’ Christmas Box.

This tradition of helping others whilst we are enjoying ourselves is just one aspect of our section which collectively we should be very proud of and I thank you for your continuing support.
