Centenary 2020

2020 marks the centenary of the Priory Golfing Society which the membership has agreed we should celebrate in style.

Carol Dixon-Smith has been working hard to find a suitable venue and has just announced the results of her enquiries.

The
Celebratory Banquet will be held in the Drapers Hall, a prestigious Livery Hall in the City of London.

This will be held on
Friday 15 May 2020. Here is a message from Carol with the latest news:

Dear Members,
 
In a year's time we will be celebrating one hundred years of The Priory Golfing Society. Our chosen venue The Drapers Hall has been booked now for 16 months, as has a Master of Ceremonies and entertainment for the evening.
 
The committee hope you will support the evening which promises to be memorable – nothing less than the occasion deserves.
Following on from my recent report at the AGM, places for the evening can now be reserved, by either paying a cheque deposit or the full amount to ‘The Priory Golfing Society.
 
The cost of the evening will be £110 per person – the ticket price includes the following;     The evening will commence at 6.30pm with a welcome canapés and drinks reception, followed by a 3 course dinner, with half a bottle of wine per person, coffee and Petit fours. Following the dinner and a few speeches, we have a live band to entertain the members. The celebrations will end with carriages at midnight.
 
Preferred dress code; Dinner jacket or Lounge suit.
 
Tables can be made up of 8’s, 10’s or twelves.   If you are attending, but are not making up a table, could you please let me have your preferences as to whom you would like to sit with.
 
There will be a bar, for those who wish to buy additional drinks during the evening. This is a cashless venue and will only accept credit cards for those extra purchases.
 
If you or any of your guests have any food allergies or intolerances, could you please let me know when booking your tables, including their names and what intolerances they have.
 
At this juncture it is not necessary to know all the guests names but I would like them in due course to enable me to make up the table plan.
 
If members wish to be accommodated in a hotel for the night, Drapers have an arrangement with several hotels in the vicinity giving preferential rates. If you are interested please let me know when you place your booking and I will forward the information.
 
I do hope that as many of you as possible will make this a night to remember and I look forward to hearing from you.
