Forty-four members attended the Annual General Meeting of the Mackay Veteran Golfers Association Inc. on Monday 8th October 2018.

Only one nomination was received for each of the executive positions, those people being declared elected to the relevant position:

  • President: Bill Eccles
  • Vice-President (Male): David Hinder
  • Vice-President (Female): Margaret Griffin
  • Secretary: Pat Crompton
  • Treasurer: Bob Boyd
  • Men’s Captain: Greg Lingard
  • Ladies Captain: Aileen Kenny
  • Tournament Director: Tony Bell

Duncan Robertson and Elspit Mulherin were again appointed as  Patron and Patroness respectively of the Association for the year 2018/19.

The Secretary also advised that Lex Flack had agreed to serve on the the Mackay & District Veteran Golfers Association, replacing Bob Boyd.

Greg Mulhall also advised that all members are welcome to join in the regular working bee known as Dad’s Army, that meets at the golf course on Wednesday mornings for 3 hours from about 6 am.  The volunteers perform a variety of tasks and save the Club tens of thousands of dollars each year. We still need new people to come and help, so if you are reasonably fit and would like to start helping, contact Greg Mulhall and he will explain everything about the work that is carried out by Dad’s army. Even if you can’t commit to every Wednesday  or to the full time span, I am sure Greg would be able to discuss various options with you.

As we are now into a new financial year, annual membership subscriptions of $10 are now due and Secretary Pat will start collecting these as from next Monday so don’t forget to bring along an extra $10.

If you can, it would be appreciated if you would pay the $10 subscription by direct credit into the Veteran’s bank account at BOQ, the details of which are:-      BSB: 124-954   Account: 22614381.
