John Reay Trophy 28th July: This year the trophy was played at Stoneleigh between 12 local clubs each fielding eight players. The best seven scores counting to the total team score, with the eighth included in the event of a draw. This is considered to be quite a prestigous event. The committee worked extremely hard to deliver a very organised and successful day, backed up by a team of Stags and Ladies performing various duties ie. starters, spotters, raffle etc. John, Cherry and their team contributed greatly with food, prizes etc. Many thanks to all. Inspired by the "Rocket Launch" start, our team consisting of Martin Darbey, Bernie Ray, Charles McTear, Gordon Mathias, Mike Gilbey, Rick Pedrick, Ted Jasinski and myself triumphed on the day.
£415 was raised for our Charity Multiple Sclerosis, total to date £1021.
