Accident leaves Four Drumpellier Members Injured

Very sorry to hear of the accident in Portsoy yesterday involving Drumpellier members Irene Morrison , Melanie Anderson, Gail McAllister and Rhona Smith. They were injured when, as pedestrians, a car drove into them. Irene , a Lanarkshire Committee member, was the most seriously injured and was flown to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary where she is undergoing a number of operations to her injured legs. Melanie also underwent an operation for a broken leg. Gail and Rhona have been discharged.
Our thoughts and prayers are with them .    

Bothwell Castle Open Day

Bothwell Castle Ladies Open will take place on Monday 1 August 2016, from 9am to 3:30pm.
This is one of the few individual Stroke play Ladies Open Competitions left and is always very popular, I think due to this being a flat course.
 There are Scratch and Handicap prizes as well as nearest the pin for both Silver and Bronze and a nearest the line so you don’t actually have to have a long tee shot to win!
 The entry form can be obtained via Bothwell Castle Club website and it can be found under Events and Open Competitions.
 Entry fee is £10 and Handicap Limit is 36 any further information can be obtained from Joanne Burt Ladies Section Secretary on  or  01698 887546.
 All proceeds from this event will go to Alzheimer Scotland.
