It was fitting that George received his 'Lifetime Achievement' Award on the day of the Wyvern Trophy - an event very dear to his heart.
For the 8 years RMAGS (and its predecessors) has been in existence George has been a constant positive presence. He has had many different titles over the years, but the titles are irrelevant because what makes the difference is the fact that he is always there. He uses his highly developed management skills and golf knowledge to help and advise all of his fellow committee members with the organisation of events. On event days he is constantly on-the-go sorting things out and corralling us members in his inimitable no- nonsense style. While the rest of us sit around drinking and ‘spinning dits’ after our rounds George is always the one running around entering the scores and correcting our marking errors. In short, George is the man that pulls it all together and makes it work.
The inscription oh his award sums it up - "From his fellow members in appreciation of his continuous support to our society" - Thanks George
If you feel able to replace the amount of your former RMAGS subscription (£20) by making a donation to RMAGS it will be very much appreciated.

Good Evening Ladies & Gentlemen
Please see the following announcement, from the Government underlining the governments commitment to supporting former serving personnel and recognise their service to the country.
The Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced today (22 January 2020), that veterans will get cut-price train travel to help boost job prospects and bring them closer to family and friends, with a new railcard on sale from Armistice Day. The railcard will extend discounted train travel to the more than 830,000 veterans not covered by existing discounts.
