Captain Fiona returns from Australia

I have now been home a couple of weeks from another lovely trip to Australia. We were extremely fortunate to miss all the dramas that were unfolding in various parts of the country and we saw nothing but blue skies and very high temperatures. Spending many hours in the sea was a very special bonus for late January and early February!

Many of you have already put your entries in for not only the Spring Meeting at Prestwick St. Cuthberts, but also the Summer meeting at Whitecraigs. I look forward to yet more entries flooding in! As I look out the window today, I hope for two equally sunny days!

Secretary Ruth and I attended the February meeting of the SVLGA at Swanston Golf Club last week, chaired by President Jean Thomas, and attended by Captains and Secretaries of the 6 areas in the country. The meeting was short and no problems were reported. The dates for the Mary McKenna Trophy, to be played this year at Craigielaw GC, the Jamboree at Wellingborough GC and the Blairgowrie Meeting are all on your fixture cards and if you wish any information regarding them, please do not hesitate to ask me. Our West Division Championships will take place again at Renfrew GC June 2nd/3rd, and our three matches, two against East and one against Midlands will be played on the dates given on your fixture card.

We wish past captain Helen a successful year as she takes over the Scottish captaincy for the senior home internationals to be played at Tramore GC (South West Ireland) in September.

I hope you have all 'wintered' well and look forward to seeing you in April.

Cheers Fiona
