August Bank Holiday Charity Weekend

Afternoon folks, so the upcoming August Bank Holiday week is just over a week away and this year the we will be holding 3 separate charity fundraising competitions. The club will be giving 75% of the income generated to the Marie Keating Foundation and the Laura Lynn Charity. The club will also run a raffle across the weekend with lots of nice prizes. Tickets are on sale for the raffle in the clubhouse. Can we ask that all members donate something small as a spot prize in the coming days.

In order to try and get as many people playing and donating over the weekend we have kept all Comp entry fees to €10 which is very modest. Folks lots of these golf fundraisers are pitched at €200+ for 3 and 4 players. But we are the Blessed 9 and inclusion is our mantra. So if we hear anyone giving out they are on Latrine duty. Seriously folks there should be a great buzz around the place and if the weather stays good it will be Brill.

Can everyone try and bring friends and guests please. So the competitions themselves will be Mixed Open Singles Stableford on Saturday and Sunday and then on Bank Holiday Monday we will have a 3 person Champagne Scramble. The rules of the scramble are detailed on the BRS timesheet. So enjoy and if we get enough spot prizes donated we may be able to supplement the competition prizes with some novelty awards. Timesheets are open now.
