A course setter and helper are required for May 23rd Fiddlers Green. If you can help please contact Colin, Richard or Jim ASAP to make further arrangements. All course setters and helpers are greatly appreciated and our combined efforts make it possible to run a fantastic calendar of events throughout the year. With enough volunteer involvement we only need to do one of these each per year, so if you haven’t had a look at the clubs online calendar for nominating as a local event course setter/helper, please consider. New course setters are encouraged to have a go, and help is available to get you on the way.
Editors NOTE: The above position has now been filled, thanks Terry, Alison and Tony. We are still looking for Course Setters and Helpers for other events during the year, please check HERE, and please put your name forward when you see somewhere, were you can help. We are particularly keen to fill in Helpers positions in June
