The shot gun start rain out did not prevent 55 golfers attending the 2021 AGM. Congratulations to President Brent for his very capable management of the meeting.
As with all internal club AGMs, the Twin Towns Board was supportive of the meeting with both the Chair and Deputy present. Four other Directors also attended and senior manager Rod Pain gave his time to ensure the venue logistics were managed for the best interest of golf members.
Twin Towns Chair, Brian Brown thanked the Golf Committee for their 2020 management and spoke more broadly about the challenges experienced during the past year. A highlight of Brian’s remarks was the presentation of a Life Member jacket to Ladies Captain, Pauline Ryan. Below golfers can see the glowing pride of Pauline holding her new jacket.
Pauline and partner Max now hold the prestigious Life Member recognition and golfers can reflect on the 50 years plus of service that these two individuals have given to Banora golf.
The President thanked Marlene Wyatt and Penny Martlew for their contribution to administration of the AGM and particularly to Marlene for preparation of the Annual Report which golf members readily voted as being read.
The notice of motion to change the election structure of the Golf Committee was comfortably passed, substantially over the 75% requirement. President Brent announced that counting of the vote would be scrutinised by two Twin Towns lady Directors, setting a Twin Towns first.
