61 ladies attended the AGM/Prizegiving held at Mortonhall Golf Club on 17th November 2014.  Marjory Lauder welcomed members and conducted the Prizegiving before moving on to the business of the AGM. The Minutes from the 2013 AGM and Financial Report were approved. Captain Marjory Lauder then presented her Report summarising East Vets events throughout the year from the inaugural Coffee Morning in February through to Blairgowrie in September as well as highlighting successes of East Vets members in 2014. 

At the election of Office Bearers, Marjory Lauder handed over the Captain's badge to Anne Brownie who thanked Marjory for all she had done on behalf of East Vets before introducing new Vice Captain, Caroline Kinnaird (of Glencorse GC),to the Meeting.  Katherine Thomson (Secretary/Treasurer) will continue in office for one more year (for which everyone is delighted) and Dulcie Barnes will continue as Committee Member.  These appointments were all approved by the AGM.

Anne Brownie (pictured right) then ran over the
main fixtures for 2015and informed the meeting that these are already available on the Website with only a few dates to be confirmed.  Following the success of the 2014 Coffee Morning, a coffee morning will be held at Craigielaw GC on Monday 9th February 2015 when Gillian Kirkwood and Anne will combine to look at the more amusing incidents or rulings  which golf referees encounter!

At the completion of the AGM business, Karen  Ballantyne gave a vote of thanks on behalf of members.          
The AGM was followed by a delicious buffet lunch  and members took the opportunity to socialise with one another and reflect on the 2014 golf season or arrange some winter golf.
Please note that as Dulcie Barnes had made apologies for the AGM, a photo of the full East Vets Committee will be posted at a later date.

Your Committee would like to welcome as many as possible of our members to this year's AGM/Prizegiving, and hope that many will also stay on for the lunch. With this in mind, it would be helpful if replies could be sent to our Secretary, Katherine,  to arrive before 7 November.

East Vets  Champion,  Karen Ballantyne, took her place
 in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Veterans Ladies Golf Association Championship on Saturday 20th September at the new venue of Strathmore GC.  Karen came through a close match with Lorraine Campbell, representing the West, by the margin
of 2 and 1.

In the Sunday semi-final, Karen came up against Lorna Bennett who was in fine late-season form.  Lorna prevailed by the margin of 4 and 3 over Karen and went on to win in a dramatic final against Mary Smith (Highland Vets) which went to the 19th!  As last year, our East Vets Champion lost to the overall Champion.  Well done Karen for representing the East so well and congratulations to Lorna Bennett for becoming Scottish Vets Champion for 2014.
