Yesterday saw the traditional Lady Captain’s Drive In, with Julie Hayman officially welcomed as the new Caldy Golf Club Lady Captain.
It was a great start for Lady Captain who demonstrated her skills on the golf course with a great drive straight down the middle of the fairway. Lady Captain was treated to a guard of honour featuring lots of mad scientists, followed by some fun experiments and fireworks.
The Day in Lady Captain’s own words…
I was secreted away in the Ladies’ Locker Room while the Committee were getting ready in the Men’s Changing Room. I was then presented with my outfit – there were absolutely no clues what the theme would be before then.
When I was led out by Lady Captain, it became more obvious what the theme was to be. My Guard of Honour of mad scientists looked amazing. I was then shown some chemistry experiments which I was expected to perform.
All of it was such good fun, made even better by all the members who turned out to watch. It was brilliant to see so many of our gentlemen members there – great support by all.
Fortunately the drive went straight down the fairway with a small amount of draw!!!!! I was just relieved I could hit the ball with an academic gown flapping around me.
Finally, the weather was kind. Lady Ex took a picture of me on the course with a rainbow coming out of my head. Could this mean I will be known as the Rainbow Lady Captain?
