    Interesting reading the reactions to the 3rd golf day - somewhat of a sour note it seems :( , although the evening entertainment sounds as though it worked well :D Just how much cash was spent in there I wonder?

    Anyhow, if you want a good reference point to start Signs, go to www.todaysgolfer.co.uk and you can read handicap players' comments on courses all over the UK rather than read publicity blurb from the courses themselves. I used it recently to find a 2-fore-1 course to use vouchers I got for Xmas.

    I would look at a golf day during July (leaves space for another one in October) probably best on a Friday - think we should base this one in the Midlands area or alternatively look to take Martin (Ashworthacca) up on his previous offer in Barnsley - good location close to the M1.

    The previous golf days have already been fairly northern based and we should continue in the same vein - Martin has already promised some quality evening entertainment.

    Yep, if needed, as the founder of AVforums Golf Days I am willing to arrange the next event and arrange the necessary at my club.

    We'll see what everyone thinks.:smashin:

    I might be interested in the next one. Although i am abit intimidated as I play off 23, so may not be up to your standard.

    Cheers

    Out of interest, does it have to be a Friday? I have a serious shortage of annual leave left now for the rest of the year so if it was a Saturday I'd be more likely to be able to attend - speaking from a selfish point of view of course ;)

    Hi mate, glad you enjoyed the day.:thumbsup:

    Problem with weekend's is that 99% of golf clubs do not allow Societies to play at weekends so it has to be midweek. You can throw a sickie though.;)

    I'll be back in action by July hopefully. The drink and being stood up in LL did not do me any good and I had to bail because of that ......

    Still, I should be having a cortisone injection soon that should sort me out ... it better had, I have a stag do from May 17-20 in Magaluf!! :devil:

    I wish that was true down here mate - societies are EVERYWHERE at the weekend. In fact, it was only a couple of years ago, after repeated voicing of concerns by members at our club, that they stopped societies / pay-n-play from going out on Sunday mornings, right in the middle of club comps!! :eek:

    How dumb-*ss is that? :suicide:

    And they wonder why entries to the sunday comps are falling - don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out methinks! Do you think it's some sort of qualifying trait that all involved with managing golf clubs immediately stop using common sense upon taking up committee positions??!! Drives me mad just thinking about some of the impossibly ridiculous decisions the committee at ours makes whilst the course goes untended. Grrrrrr :mad:

    But I digress. All I'm asking is that the possibility of a Saturday is entertained.

    Cheers

    I'd definately play Saturdays which I'm sure most of the other guys would.:thumbsup: See what the other guys think and see if we can agree on a venue that would accomodate us Saturday and we'll be sorted.:smashin:
