We don't have any offers to host the 2013 British Open currently, so we're inviting people to submit offers to run this annual tournament.
In the last few years we've been to Edinburgh, Malmesbury and this year to Durham, so it would be nice to have a location in the South East for 2013; but we're prepared to consider any offers.
If you're interested please talk to any Council member.

Alison Bexfield would like to retire as our Auditor after many years in the role.
We're confident that the Accounts are now under control, so that the role can revert to that it is supposed to be according to the Constitution, i.e a checking role on the Annual Accounts produced by the Treasurer.
This doesn't need any formal accounting training, and anyone numerate should be able to undertake this role, so we're asking for...
