Bill Wilkin awarded life membership
There was a very small attendance of veteran golfers at their annual general meeting held at the Coonabarabran Golf Club on Tuesday, 10 November.
The incoming board for 2021 comprises: Patron - Bill Wilkin; president - Graham Williams; vice president - Steve Larance; secretary - William Brown; treasurer - Margaret Groombridge; captain - Dave Bunyan; and vice captain - John Woods.
In his report, the president said that the COVID-19 virus had impacted on the veterans’ fund-raising during the past year, but had had the reverse effect on the veterans playing golf.
At the end of the meeting a Life Membership badge of Coonabarabran Veteran Golfers was presented to Bill Wilkin who, for the last few years, had been treated as a life member - now it was official!
Bill, at 96, is the Coonabarabran Golf Club’s oldest playing member.
Well done Bill.
