I feel very honoured to have been elected as society Captain for
2006. I would like to thank Tim for his sterling efforts both on and off
the golf course in 2005.
James Shipman, BUNGS Captain 2006
Last year Tim set and achieved some very realistic aims so here are
mine. Firstly to raise ¼ of the money that Andy Smith raised in 2004,
secondly reduce my handicap by ¼ that Tim Thacker managed in 2005,
finally and most importantly have fun doing the job. If I can do these I
will be delighted!
Steve, with the help of the committee, has lined up an excellent menu
of course once again. I hope all the places will be booked at each golf
day to ensure the continued success of what must be the best golf
society in the UK.
For me the highlight of the golfing year is the weekend away. This
year's trip is to Southport with what must be some of the best links
courses in England. I am looking forward to choosing an opposing
challenging captain in the weeks ahead so if you have the bottle or know
someone who may be up for it get your nomination in.
Most of you will be aware last year I had open heart surgery to
correct a leaking heart valve so it will come as no surprise that my
nominated charity is the British Heart Foundation. Visit

I wish you all a happy, successful and fun golfing year.
