Sixty Four members and guests were present at The RAF Club in Piccadilly for the annual gathering to celebrate the 2019 season under the leadership of Captain Hugh Smith.
The Captain and President were received into The President’s room with the usual acclamation We dined in fine style and later heard from our speakers, Hugh Smith who gave a report on the highs and lows of the season, Nigel Cotterill who welcomed our guests with some amusing anecdotes but most of all our guest speaker, Stuart Lloyd. Stuart, a retired consultant urologist and active member of the R & A Rules Committee, related some amusing stories about his time as a referee at major tournaments and the care we must take over the health of our prostate areas.
Before we departed our President announced the name of our Captain for 2020 – Peter Dyson – which was received with a loud round of applause. A popular choice by the reaction of the assembled diners. We wish him well in his endeavours on behalf of our Society.
