County Week 2014
The Midlands North Region Inter County Week was held at The Leicestershire Golf Club from 8-13 June, 2014.
The event started with a practice round on Sunday, 8th June and all went well. This was followed by the Welcome Party and Dinner. A good start to the week.
Day one saw Notts. playing Shropshire. The morning foursomes seeing some good golf from Notts. resulted in a two and a half to a half situation at lunchtime. A strong Notts. line up went on in the afternoon to win five of the six singles games. A good win and a good start (seven and a half to one and half points).
Day two saw Sophie Newlove have to leave us (exams) but Lianna Bailey came in. Against Leicestershire in the morning Notts. proved too strong and secured all three points in the foursomes. Leicestershire faired a little better in the afternoon securing two and a half points but the match was beyond them and Notts. won six and a half to two and a half.

Some 24 players took part in the Championship playing 36 holes with the top 16 going through to the knock out stages over Saturday and Sunday. A similar number took part in a trial of the new format of the Spring Meeting playing 18 holes. The weather was wonderful and Beeston Fields GC was presented beautifully.

The Girls & Intermediate Championships were held at Retford Golf Club on Sunday 11th May with 25 competitors playing.
Our sincere thanks go to Retford for hosting the Championship and to Belinda Briggs, representing the Lady Captain, who came to the prize presentation.
Although the weather wasn't brilliant, with rain at the start of the round, the remainder of the day stayed dry but very windy. There was some excellent golf played in these challenging conditions, and the Retford members commented on how impressed they were with the standard of play.

County Junior Organiser Required
We are looking for someone to be our County Junior Organiser and help look after the County's thriving and pro-active junior section.
The juniors enjoy a full calendar of events and we have the benefit of additional volunteers to assist. We are fortunate to have a Junior Match Secretary who organises the teams for the matches and co-ordinates and updates the contact database and tracker forms. We also have other volunteers who help and support by attending coaching and other sessions.
We are now looking for someone (or perhaps two people working together) to undertake the co-ordinating role and act in the formal capacity of County Junior Organiser. Ideally people with an interest in junior golf and with good organisational/communication skills would be ideal. There will be a requirement to represent the juniors at appropriate regional and County meetings.
Reasonable expenses will be paid.
If you feel that you have some spare time and would like to become involved and are interested please contact the General Secretary, Lynn Buttery on 01623 651229.
