Social Committee News – January 2020

It would be extremely difficult for a new beginner to start at this point, so we will not be accepting any new students 🙁   Perhaps in the future we may be offering another beginner class.

This involved the removal of weeds, boulders and muck. For those who remember the putting [...]
