Golf

Weekend 21-23 April

This latest golf weekend was an outing to Tours Ardrée. Good, extremely attractive, but difficult course and the weather was wonderful. Combined with a good hotel and good food the weekend was a great success - many thanks to Claude Jacques for his organisation of this very successful 3-day outing.

The two featured competitions at the weekends are the Net Stableford Kiwi Cup (donated by Alan and Judy Kerr in the 1980s) and the Dean (scratch) Trophy donated by Andrew Dean.

The Kiwi Cup was won by Jeanne Delacroix with 36 points. She finished as the first lady on a countback from Caroline Icart who also got 36 points. Caroline won the 10th edition of the Dean Trophy.  The third lady was Sharon Moore.

First man with 35 points was Frédéric Thiriet followed by Andrew Dean and Michael Dean.

William Brendan DOYLE

We are very sad to announce that William (Bill) Doyle passed away last Friday, 14th April. He was in his 87th year and had been unwell for some years. He is survived by his wife Nicole, their 3 children, and grandchildren.

He and Nicole were long standing members of the Club, having joined in 1963. Bill was particularly active in tennis, golf (founder member), and bridge. He was also Chairman of the House Committee. One of his great claims to fame was as the first "foreign" (Bill being Irish) Honorary Treasurer. At the time only British/Commonwealth members could be officers on the Management Committee. A special motion was submitted at the AGM and he was voted in after a unanimous a vote in his favour.

Members of the club wishing to say their last goodbyes are invited to the funeral service that will take place at 1:45 pm on Tuesday, 25th April at the Meudon Bellevue church.

Bridge News 3rd April 2017

Warm congratulations to our 2 Interclub teams, particularly Eric Lacey's which finished 2nd in the Committee final! Correction: at the Interclub Committee Final the weekend before last our 2nd team did not finish near the bottom as we were told; there was a mistake in the calculation of the results and they finished in a very honourable 16th place out of 24 teams!
