AKVG’s policy in response to the coronavirus pandemic (as at 2nd April 2020):
Each of our 2020 venues has agreed in principle to roll forward our booking and deposit by 12 months. Ditto most of the 2021 venues to 2022. This is what we will do, while keeping open the possibility that a couple of 2020 fixtures might proceed this autumn. Underpinning this plan, Dave Parker will remain captain until the 2021 AGM when vice captain Martyn Dines will take over for the 2022 season.
Boughton both home and away have now been cancelled
Etchinghill Home cancelled
West Malling away cancelled
London Beach home cancelled.
Poult Wood home cancelled
2020 Friendly Dates
We are now running a league.
At present we have 21 names and they are split into 3 X 7 players.
We have created 3 leagues of 7 players each
Randomly generated so I haven't taken handicaps into consideration. I have put every-bodies present handicap against their name.
Robertson David 20 Jopson Mike 27 Walters Pete 15
Randall John 19 Grant David 16 Gravenell Alec 19
Saiz Ramon 27 March Steve 13 Iles Malcolm 19
Bosley Alec 20 Brister Terry 16 Cotton Dave 22
Carnell Derek 28 Atwood Rob 21 Hayes Rod 24
Walter Peter 24 Hann Ron 25 o'Brien Mick 22
Seal Pete 18 John Drogo 21 Pete Langmaid 20
Rules are nice and simple so if Dave Robertson finds fault then he can do them himself ;-)
ENTRY FEE £5.00
Each person within their league will play all the others once. (Partners to be arranged by competitors and Terry Brister and Mick Jopson informed beforehand)
Full handicaps to be used as published on HDID (if not familiar with this then check with pro shop)
Format of the game will be decided on the day. If it happens to be a competition day then the league format will be the same.
Any other day then competitors decide amongst themselves how they would prefer to play.
All club rules to be abided by.
Winner will get 3 points, a draw, 2 points and nothing for a loss.
All results to Terry Brister and Mick Jopson before playing another match. Failure to do this will result in a no score.
All results and tables will be published regularly.
Winner of each league will go through to the final which will be medal play. (this assumes that we will be able to play at least a 3 ball when we reach that point)
If we are still playing 2 balls then the best 2nd will compete for the prizes.
If there are 2 X 2 balls they must be played on the same day.
As far as prizes are concerned,
3rd £15 and
£10 for Ramon for club funds
If we can get this to work then hopefully next year we can try and get more players and really expand the competition.
Start from June 1st, we would hope to see this completed by end September
