From President Ian Coat:
We welcomed Greg Driver to speak with us Tuesday morning on driving and attitude. Apologies came from Sue and Paul, who are off gallivanting around the world, while John is on the sick list this morning.
Greg spoke to us about how our driving habits can reflect our true self and how we need to be mindful of our emotions while behind the wheel. Although a self-confessed reckless hoon in his younger days, Greg has taken stock and is now a driving instructor. His studies in psychology have provided him with insight about how our brain changes as we age and how, although we may have accumulated a great deal of wisdom over the years, our ability to integrate new knowledge and made fast decisions gradually diminishes. Driving is a skill that requires the integration of new knowledge about what is happening around us and demands that we make rapid decisions. So, as we all recognise, as we age our driving ability fades.
Question from Editor: If Greg Driver were not a driving instructor would he be a Golf Pro?
Hands On Project
A special thanks to Susan Gascoine for coordinating the HANDS ON project last weekend. Everything went smoothly at the Foyer K-Mart Firle. This is a result of Susan’s behind the scenes negotiating to get everything right. We achieved our key objectives of engaging in a fun fellowship event, engaging with the public and bringing community minded businesses onboard.
Special thanks to our sponsors for their support:
