Thank You everyone for a great Charity Day

The day may have been dismal but charity was alive and kicking! Thank you to you all for getting into the spirit of our 'new look' Charity Day. The jams, pickles and lemon butters were great raising $265! The baking efforts were as usual fantastic raising $200 but the real success was the raffle due to the imaginative variety of baskets and all manner of goodies available to win. The raffle raised $675 and together with donations of $85 made the total raised to $1225. A wonderful effort!
The first three prize winners were our delightful Helen from the office, Moya and Nell followed by almost everyone!

Special thanks to Coco/Seashells who once again, through Margaret Thorpe, supported us with a prize voucher of $100!

$500 of this will go to CCWGA chosen charity Coast Shelter. The remainder will be added to from other money raised through the 100 club and raffles and distributed to our choice of local charities later in the year.

GOLF ABANDONED

Golf has been abandoned today 21/7.  So if you could please come at 10:30am for our trading table starting at 11:00am.   See you there.

Charity Day - course is open!

Charity Day will go ahead rain, hail or shine!

 Weather reports at this stage could see golf cancelled on Thursday.  Charity Day will still go ahead. We request, if there is no golf, you arrive with your goodies for sale or raffle at 10 30. The Committee will need a little time to set up items for sale along with the Raffle so request that you go and have a coffee and as soon as possible the doors for the day will open.

The format for this year will be slightly different with cakes, etc., jams and pickles, some golf paraphernalia and our Monster Raffle. Raffle tickets will cost 3 for $5 or 7 for $10.

As previously mentioned each year we choose a local charity to support. Along with our chosen charity or charities we also support the charity chosen by the Central Coast Women's Golf Association. This year the District charity is Coast Shelter.

See you all Thursday for a fun day..

The past couple of years The Haven School has been the recipient of our donation. This school rescues mainly Year 7 & 8 kids who find it difficult to attend regular schools. It teaches them life skills eg cooking, handling money, respect, etc. etc.

Pennants Presentation 11 July 2016

Breakers Country Club saw a sea of coloured team golf shirts as all the District Clubs came together to celebrate the 2016 Pennants series. All clubs in the district were represented with at least one team, with most having entered two teams into the inaugural year of the new format.

President of the Central Coast Women's Golf Assn, Anne Glance, welcomed everyone on behalf of the district. After morning tea District Captain, Jenny Chapman, spoke about the new format and provided us with many statistics which put to bed most negatives voiced prior to the new format being introduced. Amazing Jenny and obviously the result of much work done over the course of the competition.

Our congratulations must go to Shelly Beach who, narrowly, won both the Wattle and Banksia divisions! Gosford and Kooindah coming a very close second. Shelly Beach also won the Margin Shield which goes to the Club who wins both divisions.

It proved to be a great Pennants season and our gratitude must go to our CCWGA committee for all their hard work, and in particular to Anne and Jenny! Well done!

Stroke+Monthly Medal+5th GNSW Medal + Goodwill Plate 7 July 2016

Fancy having to write a blog for a day like today but, you guessed it, 20 brave? Ladies took to the course in spite of the wind and rain.  The course, I am told, was playable with the sudden puddles requiring brief stops. Some of the more sensible ladies called it quits after 9 holes but the game did proceed with enough ladies playing to make it an official comp day. Results for these brave ladies are as follows:

Winner.    Jan Hoban (32) with 79 nett;  2nd  was Aiki Harrigan (17) with 80 nett;
3rd.          Jan Portelli (33) with 82 nett and. 4th was Jenny Chapman (17) with 84 nett on a c/back

Gross Winner across the field was Aiki Harrigan (17) with 97 gross
Putting with the lowest no of putts went to Jan Portelli with 31 putts
Nearest the Pin: Suzanne Connor was our only contender on the 2/11th

News items ....
Congratulations to Ronalda Arnott for winning the Divisiin 2 Knock Out last Monday against Charmaine Armbruster.
Congratulations to our ever reliable Dee Barham for winning the Long Markers at Everglades on Tuesday in testing conditions.

Please note entries close next week, 14 July, for our Club Championships. $4 for the Club Championships (4, 11 & 18th August) plus another $3 for the Vets Championships (4th & 11th  August). $7 for both. You've got to be in it to win it!

Blogger made a mistake last week!!!! From 1 July a social game will cost you $9 for 9 or 18 holes. Hope you all enjoyed getting that $1 change that you weren't expecting!

Charity Day is on 21 July. If you are not busy preparing goodies please save your money so you are prepared to buy in order to make this 'once a year' day a success.
