The bottle tombola raised £310 for the balcony fund. Thank you to everyone who contributed, and the winner of the “guess the length of the Captain’s drive” was Ben Graves who guessed 197 yds. – the actual drive was 213 yds.
We will be having a Summer Festival at the golf club as part of our fundraising efforts to replace the balcony. The Festival is intended to be a fun day for members, family, and friends. It will start at 1pm with a walk (choice of 5m and 1.5m) starting and finishing at the golf club, and including a treasure hunt.
Back at the club Steve Farnsworth’s band will be playing for us late afternoon whilst everyone enjoys BBQ food and drink. A variety of games/events are being planned also. All this will be set up in marquees around the 1st/10th tees. (golfers on the day will be asked to tee off from the ladies 1st tee).
Please book the evening of Friday 28th April in your diary for the Auction of Promises. Bridget is well on with the organisation for it, and will be producing an auction catalogue by the end of March so everyone can see what is on offer. We will also be organising a preview of items at the club on the Sunday before the auction. Trevor Dawson has kindly agreed to be our auctioneer.
Hopefully we can raise a lot of money for the Balcony Appeal Fund and at the same time have people enjoying the auction process.
AUCTION ITEMS include: Cobra Trolley Bag, K2 Karshar Pressure washer,2 Cases French Wine, Holiday Home in Cornwall, Family Photo Sitting, Lexus Car Hire, Donald Holden framed painting value £500…
These and many more items will be auctioned. Full catalogue to follow.
