Season's Greetings


Merry Xmas & a Happy & Healthy 2014 to all our members & their families.

Just a reminder of the hazards to be encountered at Babinda during cane harvesting!  (Thanks Di)

Our program for 2014 is now on the blog (see right column), but will be updated once sponsorships are finalised.

President's Report & Results Cairns 3 Dec

President's Report & Results
of the 2Ball Ambrose Competition
Played on 3rd December
at Cairns Golf Club
100 Players

President's Report

beautiful clear & relatively cool day greeted the 82 men & 18 ladies who turned up for our shotgun start in the final comp for 2013, a 2 Ball Ambrose. 94 stayed for our breakup lunch which was catered for by the club. The course was in good condition with greens not as fast as they have been, which may have been a relief to some. Congratulations to the greens staff.
Thanks to the caterers & bar staff who looked after us very well. The meal was on the tables promptly & the prawns plentiful. Thanks to Dave Pascoe who kindly volunteered to drive around with cold water during the game to keep us rehydrated. Thanks also to eagle eyed non playing committee members on the verandah who kindly & loudly pointed out my approach to the 18th had gone O/B!
Welcome to visitors for the day who were also some of our sponsors, Melody Lucas & her guests Serge & Joan Battistin, Cate Dunbar & Shae Isselbacher of Savannah Lifestyle Resorts, Carly Hatswell of Easylift & Scott Payne of Complete Fitness Solutions & Katrin Nash of Drummond Golf. Thanks to Melody for presenting the Savannah Cup winners & to Carly for presenting the day's prizes.
Welcome to new member Bill Peterson of Cairns.
The winners of the progressive raffle cleaned up most of the items, but I'm holding a couple for Gary Long & one for Dave Lawler.
We had some programs for 2014 available at registration.  More will be available at our first game next year & a copy will be posted to this blog when we finalise sponsorships, probably early in January.  I will be posting irregularly to the blog over the next few weeks if we have anything we think may be of interest to members, so please check it every week or so (if you remember during the festive season).
With best wishes for a Happy Christmas & a healthy & prosperous New Year from all the committee.
