After golf, all competitors sat down to an excellent lunch which was very well received.
Dottie Beanland in her welcoming speech, thanked all at Robin Hood GC for their help prior to and during the event. She also sincerely thanked Rudells the Jewellers for their continued support in sponsoring the prizes, which looked fantastic on the prize table. Dottie then gave us all information on Rene Greey and how she came to give a trophy for the winners. "Rene (Sutton Coldfield Ladies GC) was the first Warwickshire junior to play for the County, way back in 1920's and was British Girl's Champion in 1926, before becoming County Captain in 1962. During this year, she presented the County with their first official flag, and also donated the cup for this event." Dottie also thanked Hanora White for all the hard work and effort she had put into County business over the past 6 years, as she is now retiring from the position of County Competition Secretary.
