CAPTAIN ELECT (Brian Gunning) PRIZE
Dear Member,

This weekends competition is the Captain Elect (Brian Gunning) Prize which is the medal competition for June (Strokeplay).
This weekend we also have five teams in action for the club:
Junior Cup, Tudenham Cup, Castle Barna Shield, All-Ireland Fourball & Provincial Towns.
The Captain Elect has kindly decided to extend his competition to Monday so as to facilitate those involved with teams on Saturday or Sunday.
Team members, managers, selectors and club officials who are involved with the teams will be able to play in the Captain Elect Prize on Monday.
We wish to note that this facility to play on Monday is only extended to members who are involved with weekend teams.
We would advise that members can only enter one of the competitions on Monday, either the Captain Elect Prize or the normal Monday Open competition.
We would like to wish team managers: Pat Corcoran (A), Oliver Geraghty, Noel Mooney, JJ Flanagan and John Lynch and their teams all the best at the weekend.
We would also like to wish our Captain Elect Brian Gunning all the best for his competition.

Regards

Competitions Committee
