Rules Golf Society
A hardy group of 16 gathered for the
AGM on a chilly night at Seafield Bowling Club.
The meeting opened with a tribute to
two of our long term members Robin Morris and Richard Ellis both
active members of the Society. As well as members they were both
active in their community and enjoy a wide variety of activities and
interests. The numbers paying their respects at their Funeral and
Memorial Service is testament to the high regard they were held in.
All of the usual business of an AGM
was discussed and considered by all present.
Being the 275th
Anniversary year of the signing of the first recorded rules of golf
in Leith there were very interested comments from members enquiring
if the unveiling was possible in this year. An interesting
discussion on the current financial position and the future plans
was well received by all present. The issues of on-going maintenance
and security was raised and discussed. The work of the Statue
Committee was supported by all present.
