The Te Omanga Hospice Golf Tournament organising committee held a debrief yesterday and were generally pleased with the way the day went.  The amount raised on the day has almost reached $69,000.  This is the largest amount ever raised at their previous golf tournaments and they have advised this would not have been possible without the assistance of our club members.  They added they would not have been able to run the tournament without our assistance.  The committee is confident improvements can be made to next year's event.  Brian Clarke and I wish to thank everyone who assisted on the day in the Fine Dining Tent, selling of paddle raffles, welcomers, spotters at the auction.  Special thanks must go to Tony, Mike, Paul & Brian Klee who were charged with putting up and taking down 9 gazebos around the course on the day. It was a tough job! Special thanks must also go to Brian & Kaye Lummis who provided yummy prawn cocktails, chicken cocktails in the Fine Dining Tent. They proved very popular with the players. Brian Clarke and I wish to thank all of the members who helped make this such a successful event.
