West Vets Fixtures & update July 2020

On the 8th July West Vets Secretary Sandra MacDougall sent out an email to all the West Vet Members from Captain Chris Fowler -- In was you did not receive it or have not read it -- here is the Covid-19 update for the Association ------

The Committee held a Zoom meeting on the 6th July to discuss our fixtures for 2020 and how we go forward into 2021. 

1. We took account of what Scottish Golf had to say about Open Competition, Elite Amateur or indeed Professional events: 
"At present, it is not currently envisaged that these type of events will return for some time yet" 
Along with the SVLGA's early decision to cancel all their competitive golf events this year, we have decided to cancel our Autumn Meeting at West Kilbride in September. East Vets have already made the decision to cancel the Foursomes Match in August

2 Since we have not been able to hold any events this year, we felt that it is only fair to carry forward your subscription payments into 2021. We hope this meets with your approval.

3. It is hoped that all our 2020 fixtures will remain the same for 2021. Same venues, approximately the same dates for competitions and matches. Sandra has been in touch with all the clubs we were going to use and is hopeful this will be the case.

With so much uncertainty about golf this year, we felt we should make these decisions now and let you know the situation as it stands.

I will be in touch later in the year with any news about fixtures and what will happen about our AGM.

These are certainly unprecedented and extraordinary times. 
Keep Safe, enjoy your golf.

Chris Fowler (Captain)
