New surface at Glen St

Chairman, Greens Director and few others today tested out the new green at Glen St in chilly conditions.  It rolled beautifully, despite the chill the sun was out and everyone enjoyed playing on the new surface.
The rinks are currently unmarked, but will shortly be marked with chalk until the green ‘settles in’ then lines will be marked more permanently.
We look forward to seeing the green used in pennant in the not too distant future.
