The Rossdale Ladies
Hello, well it should not be long now before we can all recapture some sanity and return to the course. From communications it seems the office and ground staff are working overtime to make sure it happens, with some bright and shiny new ideas for our well being on the agenda. This week the committee are saying a big hello to our 14th longest serving member in Annette Foster.
Annette joined Rossdale on 14/1/87 on the nomination of David Brown. On joining she was introduced to Effie Eaton, who took her around to get her first handicap of 36. The Lady President was Bev Walker, The Lady Captain was Jeannette Barratt. While enjoying her golf, along the way she gained quite a few achievements which include
1992 Secretarys’ Cup,
1995 Grandmothers trophy,
1995 B Grade Champion
A best Stableford (40pts) and a best Par season on +7,
a Presidents trophy with Edith Vinton and
a Winter Shield with Sue Cole.
She was on a team that won an Interclub Plate and a winning Pennant team at Werribee. Annette has enjoyed many and varied positions at the Club for administration as well as the game. She has served on the board when David Salter was Club President, she has been a handicapper, Secretary Treasurer, a Lady President in 1995 as well as two stints as Lady Captain.
She was first Lady Captain in 2005-07, then considering herself retired from the position it was Annette’s’ passion for Rossdale that she then stepped up to take on the role of Lady Captain again when some goodwill seemed to be missing from former members.
Each year the ladies hold a small ritual for committee members known as “committee appreciation day”. Over some time this small get together became a little overlooked and was about to let go by the wayside. It was with Annette’s’ insistence on the importance of paying some respect to serving committee members that this ritual still exists. The current committee wishes so much that they could take a bow on “committee appreciation day” but in this crazy climate who knows when that may be!
Thanks Annette for your commitment to admin. duties and for showing your passion for recognising all the volunteer workers that help build Rossdales continuing social life. Annette has experienced some health issues of late but she is still on board and supporting Rossdale because of the wonderful friends and strong club loyalties that she values with the highest regard.
Congratulations Annette on 33 years we’re looking forward to resuming our Wednesday Ladies day and hope you can join us soon.
