We gathered for early morning golf on a cold and wet day at Northwood Golf Club.
Once catered for with coffee and a splendid bacon roll, we ventured out on an improving day and thank goodness the rain had stopped. Some twenty-eight managers from around the region dressed in an array of warm, wet and festive gear strode out focus on winning the days event.
At halfway we were greeted and treated to mulled wine and delicious home-made mince pies, which were well received.
There were three nearest the Gins on the day and they were won by:
3rd Hole – Richard Grun – Northwood Golf Club
13th Hole – Stephen Bryan – Brickendon Grange Golf Club
15th Hole – Ryan Deery – Stevenage Golf and Conference Centre
Paul Lancaster won the best male festive golfer, but was a bit camera shy, Niki Hunter won the best festive female golfer, plus the region wished to acknowledge and thank Niki for all her hard work with the GCMA and for the region as she was sadly retiring.
In 3rd place on the day with 29points was Shelly Bansel from Northwood Golf Club
In second place with 30pts was John Kennedy from BB&O
In first place and winner on the day with 31 pts was Peter Dickson from Hendon Golf Club
Congratulations to Peter.
We would like to thank Club Systems and Equity for their sponsorship of the golf prizes and refreshments.
Following the golf, Ray and the team supplied us with a sumptuous, yet boisterous Christmas lunch accompanied with pea shooters, snowballs and hilarity whilst entertained by the most fantastic close up table magician.
Following lunch, we sang the afternoon away to a very personable Michael Bublé impersonator, who indulged us with numerous Christmas hits and songs. A good afternoon was had by all.
These events are supported by our sponsors and again we would like to thank Eagle Promotions for the reception drinks and Gary Boyes for providing the lunch wine.
A special mention must go to Ray, Jenny and all the team at Northwood who made us feel most welcome and provided us all with a great day from start to end, THANK YOU all.
