Many thanks to all the contributors who made it a great day.
To Wayne and the greens staff who worked tirelessly to provide us with a course of which we are rightly proud of.
To Dave Stockton who again served us up a meal to savour.
To Judith and the bar staff for keeping us replenished.
To the helpers on the day. Starters Ian Baxter, John Ellison(who took the role to a new level) and Norman Baxter and to Chris Bryson who put in a very long shift on the scoreboard.
Many thanks to the reserves who were on standby in the event of no shows fortunately none were required. Bobby Jones, Simon Jones, Derek Goldsmith, Ken Musgrove, John Ellison and Tony Nelson.
Particular thanks to all the members who turned out and supported the event this year as the club attempted to reduce the annual loss from staging the event.
Special thanks to the sponsors without whose support we simply couldn’t run the event and provide an amateur prize fund of over £1000. Many thanks particularly to Stuart Grayson, Apple Orchard for the generous donation of fruit and water.
To the Pros who make the day what it is and to Brad and Josh for their support in the lead up to the event.
Finally to Tom and Brenda Flowers for all their hard work in bringing the competition to fruition and for their support from its inception.
