BLOB

Afternoon Members,

A big Thank You to all the members that helped out at the working bee – you are AWESOME!! I have a shovel in the office if anyone has lost it.

LABOUR WEEKEND SHOP SALE 50% OFF ALL CLOTHING ITEMS AND SHOES IN THE SHOP. PLEASE TAKE NOTE THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE CAPS, GLOVES, TOWELS, AND SOCKS. IT IS ONLY SPORTS LEISURE AND GREG NORMAN CLOTHES PLUS SPORTS LEISURE AND FOOTJOY SHOES.

The $50.00 CASH Raffle was won by Ru Ruha – congratulations

The last Roaring Forties Week 10 was won by 37 Hugh Cheevers $100, ( If Hugh wins this again he has asked that I don’t put his name in, as his wife reads the Blob, so when I write “that person who doesn’t want his wife to know” you will all know that I am referring to HUGH CHEEVERS) also Di Do and Mike Burrowes won $50.00 each. Thanks to all members that helped with this fundraising that went towards the painting of the Clubrooms.

It has been expressed by some members to run this again, 15 members have signed up again for another 10 weeks, I will touch base with everyone that has their allocated numbers already picked to see if they are keen ( or you can just let me know by e-mail ) – no pressure – if there are any outstanding numbers I will then put the list of names and numbers out for other members to join. I will let you all know when and if it starts again. This fundraiser will pay for a concrete pad down from #18 for golfers to air hose grass off their shoes and etc.

Have you registered for the Masters yet??

On Sunday 3rd November all members will be playing for the Arthur Avis Trophy, the concept of this is Better Ball Stableford, mixed or non-mixed pairs playing in 1 competition, you arrange your own partners on the day, I will have a list for you to add your and your partners name, if you don’t staff will randomly select your partner on the day. The cost will be $2.50 each person. The winning pair will received a print of the course donated by the Arthur Avis Family, plus the money received is split between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This normally is a lot of fun.

Business House Twilight Golf start on Thursday 24th October, so far we have 12 teams plus waiting on 3 to confirm, thanks to Ian Sherwin for arranging some new blood into the competition. Pak N Save will be sponsoring prizes again this year, so thanks to Chris Brooks for arranging this with Damon Jakeman. Thanks to Peter Gallen for organizing the Twilight again. Please take note that this is a SHOTGUN start at 6.00PM every Thursday for 6 weeks. The whole idea of Twilight is that it meant to be fun, and played at your leisure, everyone starting together will have everyone ending together and getting into the clubrooms the same time.
