Stags Captains Charity Day 2024

Stags Noticeboard : Stags Captains Charity Day 2024

On Monday May 20th 2024 we gathered for Captains Day, the major fundraising event of the year for the Captains Charity.

The weather forecast the previous week had threatened Scattered Showers but as the day drew closer the forecast improved.  So for the second event in a row (after the Away Day) we didn't have any rain. 
Everyone gathered, collecting their cards in the time honoured fashion, with the last to arrive picking up the card and getting to be the marker. Neil Mcklow turned up in plenty of time to avoid this task only to find the rest of his team had already been at the course an hour putting out the markers - sorry Neil!!
For a while, early on in our rounds, there were some threatening clouds around, but by the end we were playing in the sunshine. So everyone was able to sit out on the patio, maybe for the first time this year!
As everyone arrived back from around the course cards were handed back in and of course the Yellow Balls, or not in some cases. Seven groups returned their balls, 4 returned with varying tales of woe including one team who lost theirs on their second hole played, though to be fair it was the 18th!! and one team returned a yellow ball proudly to be told it had miraculously changed from Kirkland to Taylor Made during the course of the round. No extra marks for initiative though, you have to return the ball you were given!
So once we had all the marker boards back from the course prizes were awarded. 
Paul Steward was presented with the Tee Marker from the hole he sponsored (after he had said he had been looking to see his name and hadn't seen it!!)
Putting together the day emphasised just how much our former Competition Secretary put into this event every year for 14 years, much appreciation from me for the help and guidance he now provides in the background. Though with the burden of organization removed Richard thrived, winning 3 nearest the pin prizes and one longest drive.
He was also a member of the Runners Up Team of Steve Hyland, Roy Pickering, Tim Mcdonald & Richard Parham.
There might be some questions though with the winning team including the Captain, Handicap Secretary, Competition Secretary! The competition was won by Neil Mcklow, David Spillane, Dave Lole & Mike Smith, who also won the Yellow Ball competition
A bottle of wine was also presented to the highest Stableford score on the day which went to the Captain, David Spillane. Though he might regret carding that in the presence of the Handicap Secretary!!
The raffle was drawn and prizes distributed, I am learning in my role at the moment and apologize that I didn't keep a note of all the winners - that will be remedied next year.!
The day was a major fundraiser towards the Captains Charities, Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust and Grub & Gab.
After Monday the total raised so far in 2024, including Easter Egg Raffle, Thank God its Over & Capt v Past Captain Comps stands at £2205 with a couple of contributions still outstanding.
So well done everyone as Richard always used to say it is amazing the generosity of the Stags, thank you again for all of the donations, sponsorship etc it certainly makes for a great day and we continue the tradition of the Stags being a major contributor to the Captains Charities each year.
