Charity Field Day - Saturday 16th June. A team competition open to members and guests.
The captain’s chosen charity this year is “Daft As A Brush”. In case anyone is unaware of the function that this charity provides it is as follows: Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care offers staffed custom-made vehicles to transport outpatients, free of charge, to and from Hospital who are undergoing Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy cancer treatment. The regions covered are: Northumberland, North and South Tyneside, Durham, Newcastle upon Tyne and surrounding areas. So I’m sure that you will agree that this is a very worthwhile service to support - AND ITS LOCAL.
The format of the competition is a 3 man team with the 2 best scores to count on each hole. In addition to £1 entry fee and standard optional £1 sweep and £1 for the 2’s there will be an additional £2 charge to enter this competition which will go direct to the charity. The entry fee for visitors will be £5. There will also be a raffle and I have a number of 4 ball vouchers which can be purchased for £30 on a lucky dip basis.
Captains Cup - Singles Stableford competiton with best Net and Best Gross prizes.
