Donna Jackson is making her Jamboree debut and brings with her a wealth of both County and International experience, not to say youth, being the youngest member of the Team!
The Team comprises an excellent mix of personalities who all bring not only their golfing skills with them but a great Team spirit and eagerness to be successful.
The Jamboree matches will take place from the 8th to the 10th of August at Frilford Heath GC, Oxfordshire. The foursomes matches start at 8.30am and the singles at 1.05pm each day. If anyone should be in the area and would like to come and support us, you would be made most welcome.

Apologies for no further updates on the Championship after the first round. Internet and Computer problems meant that I was unable to update the Blog.   The full results can be seen on Scottish Golf or Kirkwood Golf. 
Congratulations to Jennifer Bryans who qualified for the Match Play Championship.  She defeated the top Qualifier,  Frances Millar (Carnoustie) in the 1st round , and was defeated in the Quarter Finals by defending Champion Sheena Wood (Aberdeen) 1 Hole.
In the handicap Match Play,  Mairi Pollock and Karen Ballantyne both Craigmillar Park were defeated in the Quarter Finals. 
Well done to all East Vets who competed.  The weather was very wet on the Tuesday and Thursday making conditions difficult.  The course was in fantastic condition and the greens very slick.
