2020 Autumn Meeting and Bridge Drive Events Cancelled
The Autumn Meeting which was planned to be held on Monday 7th September at The Leicestershire Golf Club for the Renee Shipman Trophy was cancelled as a result of Covid 19 restrictions.
It is very disappointing that this trophy event planned for 2020 has had to be cancelled. The social distancing restrictions and local Leicester lockdown have resulted in this decision being made, albeit with regret, by the committee.
The Bridge Drive planned for Thursday 5th November at Kirby Muxloe Golf Club has also been cancelled for 2020. It is not feasible to maintain social distancing and to observe safe handling practices whilst sharing playing cards with other bridge players at this time.
It is hoped that events planned for 2021 will be able to proceed as the world gets used to a "new normal" in a Covid 19 environment.
2020 President's Day Cancelled
President's Day was another casualty of the Coronavirus. The event was scheduled to be held on Thursday 25th June at Belton Park Golf Club but this again had to be cancelled.
The social distancing restrictions and closure of clubhouse facilities resulted in the decision to cancel the event.
It is looking likely that other events planned for later in the year will also be in doubt.
2020 Spring Meeting Cancelled
Unfortunately the Spring Meeting scheduled to be played at Luffenham Heath Golf Club for the Wendy Johnson Trophy had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus. This is the first cancellation for our Association but unfortunately probably not the last for this year.
We are very mindful that this virus has claimed many lives and that not being able to play golf is a small sacrifice in the scheme of things.
The committee hope that all members stay safe and well by following the social distancing guidelines and other preventative measures.
We look forward to seeing you all when the crisis has moved on, whenever this will be.
