Greetings one and all and welcome to the new year for the CSGC Geelong . With a new year comes new challenges , the committee wish to thank all the people who attended the AGM and welcomed all their input .
Due to the ever increasing costs of running the club , membership will now increase to $70 p/a and a new catagory to encourage junior members has been set up and a junior membership will cost $30 p/a up until the age of 18 . Monthly fees will remain at $30 per round apart from when we play Eynesbury for the Cro open and all qualifiers who make the final at Barwon Heads will now be charged $50 . Other items are being introduced to try and make things a little easier to run the club and they will be announced in due course .
So buckle up and lets have a great year and see you all at Portarlington on the 16th of Jan at 07 00am .

p.s rumour has it that skivvy Medved has had a huge pre season and may well start the favourite to take out the title .

End of year wrap up

Congratulations goes to Manners for winning the Champion of Champions . Manners had a very consistent year and i,m sure that eveyone believes it was a much deserved victory after being a member for a long time . Rino Smilovic broke the shackles for a long belated win in the hackers proving practice makes perfect ( rumour has it that the Wild Rhino has been chalking up the hours on the golf course midweek ).
The committee wishes to thank all the people who attended the Xmas party along with all our sponsors contributing to a very successful day .
There will be an AGM on Thursday 16th of Dec at 07 00 pm at the Croatian Hall on Separation St for all members interested in attending . Items on the agenda will include finances , membership and general business . New ideas are welcome as the club must continually strive to improve ourselves .
The 1st 2 rounds of 2011 have been booked they include
Portarlington on the 16th of Jan 0700 am
Colac on the 6th Feb 0730 am
A reminder that we are planning on staying on after our round at Colac to enjoy a day at the races .
For all those interested we request a reply by the !6th of Jan so we can determine the size of the bus and the cost to hire it .
To all of us poor souls who didn,t manage to qualify or win anything , remember the slate is clean and we all start equal .

Until next year , have a happy and safe Xmas and holiday season and bring your A game to the 1st round .
