Monthly Newsletter October 2018 NATAL NOMADS Upcoming Events 22 ND November 2018 THE CLUB SYMBOL Our Club badge, a bell crossed by a golf club, is symbolic of the raison d'être of the 'NOMADS' - through golf, the remembrance of others. Natal Nomads next fixture@ Mount Edgecombe Golf Club Address: 1 Golf course Drive, Mount edgecombe Golf Estate It is printed in the renowned extract from the Meditations of John Donne (1573-1631): 'No man is an island entire of itself; Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; And therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.' Special Presentation: 40 YEAR TIE – Pat Smythe 15 Year tie – Gavin Brown 10 Year Tie – Ray James CAPTAINS REPORT 5 Year Tie – Derek Airey INDUCTIONS: Greetings Nomads Aryn Geekie The day before our game I had visions of sending out a broadcast Whatsapp message saying the course was too water logged to play and that the game would be called off. Fortunately for the 2 nd time this year I was spared doing this as RDGC was still very playable, albeit for a few puddles. The A Division scores alone indicate this, with two 39 Pointer and two 38 Pointers in the division. I had a most enjoyable round with Tim Scott, the VC of Royal, Mike Jordan, Club Manager of Royal and the distinguished Tony Bolt. Thank you very much gents and keep up the great work at Royal Durban, it is always a pleasure playing there. Prize giving was a slick affair, thanks very much to Tom Barff, Jayne Van Rensburg and Ian Brewer for your input and welcome back Steve McClelland. Phil Hodgson’s “trip down memory lane” fines session was a superb effort and kept the audience guessing. I would also like to thank Mike Jordan once again for his very generous donation of curry and rice for everyone after the game, this has become a firm favourite at RDGC.
