RL Tuesday Social Morning

 We Wish All Our Members a Very Happy Christmas from Ranches Ladies

Ranches Ladies is  taking a break until the New Year and we will meet up again on 7th January 2020. We wish you all the best for the Christmas holidays and hope that those of you who are travelling have a safe and happy trip. For everyone staying in Dubai, enjoy everything the UAE has to offer over the festive period.

Scottish Dancing Circle’s Festive Garden Party

The Scottish Dancing Circle  held a fundraising garden party on 18 December in Carole’s beautiful garden and helped to raise 2000 for RL’s fundraising.  Thank you Anne, Eleanor, Carole and all the dancers for a delightful morning. We had a lovely time.

New Year Social Morning

7 January 2020: Informal Coffee Morning

Join us in the New Year for an informal coffee morning at Birdies’ Bar at Arabian Ranches Golf Club from 9.30am. You can find Birdies on the green behind the Golf Club, a short stroll from the clubhouse. Catch up with everyone’s holiday news and find out what is planned for the New Year.

14 January 2020

The date has changed and the extraordinary AGM will be held on 14th January 2020 to enable as many people as possible to attend. This a legal requirement from the Civil Development Authority whenever there are changes to the Board.

Ranches Ladies can only run its Circles, trips, discounts and programmes because it is licensed and regulated by the CDA. Our licence demands that we hold regular meetings of the membership. Unfortunately, members are not attending our Tuesday social mornings and therefore we are in real danger of being unable to operate as we have done in the past. We know everyone loves the circles but we can only run them under the terms of the licence, which means attendance at some of the Tuesday social mornings.  As you know, RL does not make any money from the Tuesday social mornings, the entrance fee pays for the room rental from the golf club, and we need a minimum of 30 ladies to attend each week in order to break even. We have been subsidising the mornings for a number of weeks now out of RL funds. As we are a non profit making organisation, we cannot afford to do that.

Please tell us what we can do to increase the appeal of our Tuesday morning get togethers. And let us know why you don’t attend. You can only join our circles if you are a member of RL and we ask you please to make an effort to attend some of the Tuesday social mornings on a regular basis. Not every week, but more than never.

Please attend the AGM on 14th January if you can, it will only take up a small part of the morning, and welcome in the New Year with Ranches Ladies.

Please send any feedback about the Tuesday social mornings and make any suggestions direct to Beth and Hayet on ranches.ladies@gmail.com or speak to them directly.
