CCWGA NEWS.


Hi Ladies,

As I mentioned at the AGM last week, a few ladies from Gosford and the CCWGA were invited to afternoon tea at the Dooralong Transformation Centre on Friday.

We were shown the golf cart (photos attached) that has been purchased with the $13,500 the district ladies raised for the charity this year. It was great to see where our money has gone, and they are extremely grateful for the very generous donation which is already being used all the time to transport people and goods around the grounds.
 
The scones and jam and cream were amazing too!

Fyi...check out the plaque they have attached in our honour. Also note the number plate which is in honour of a special member of their organisation who has successfully been through  their program, now lives on site and volunteers his time every day to help others in need.

 Cheers,
Jenny

STABLEFORD SHOOTOUT 2018


Reporter Curby's  write up:
Forget The Everest!!  Today’s Breakers Stableford Shootout was the place to be!  What a day weatherwise – the right amount of wind and sunshine to make a huge difference to the race track.  A large amount of excited spectators were present to see these record breaking fillies trot their stuff and what a field it was! Competition was fierce in order to obtain a much coveted spot in this year’s Shootout.  The field read as follows:
  • In Barrier 1 the Filly from the McInerney stable – a proven sprinter – not sure how this frisky filly will handle today’s heavy track. This filly was the highest qualifier for this prestigious event and is highly motivated.
  • In Barrier 2 – the Filly from the Chilman stable – this filly may be small in stature but, when she puts her mind to it, she can outclass the best of them.  She did this in order to gain her spot today as the second highest qualifier.
  • In Barrier 3 – the Filly from the Holt stable – a relative new comer to this event.  Again she can bolt when required as proven by her position as qualifier number three.
  • In Barrier 4 – the Filly from the Gibson stable – this horse can certainly punch above her weight! Highly competitive and a real chance as proven by her track record.
  • In Barrier 5 – the young Filly from the Fox stable – this Filly has had some wonderful runs of late and will be one to watch as she gains the sort of experience this event will give her.
  • In Barrier 6 – the thoroughbred Filly from the Dwyer stable.  What a promising young filly is this one! A relative new comer to the turf but one with a real future!
  • In Barrier 7 – another thoroughbred, relatively young but with a wealth of experience. This filly from the Chapman stable always performs consistently.
  • In Barrier 8 – the third thoroughbred of the group today.  This filly out of the Hopkins stable has a real head for competitive racing and with the biggest weight today will need to have plenty of staying power.
The starter’s pistol sounded and the fillies bolted! Leading the way to the second furlong was the Chapman filly, closely followed by the Chilman, Fox, Gibson, McInerney, Holt, Dwyer, Hopkins fillies and at the end of the field came the Higgins filly who dropped out of the race her.
The third furlong saw the Chilman, Holt, Gibson, Fox, Dwyer and Chapman fillies all fighting for the lead.  A ‘chip-off’ between the fillies from the Hopkins and McInerney stables saw the McInerney filly retire.
There was fierce competition as the fillies headed for the fourth furlong.  Again the competition saw a tie for last and the fillies from the Chilman and Holt stables completed another chip-off. This forced the tiny filly from the Holt stable to call it quits for this year.
Then there were six fillies all with steaming nostrils rounding the bend to the fifth furlong.  Once again a tie meant another chip-off between the fillies from the Hopkins and Fox stables with the Hopkins filly, carrying the extra weight, again putting her head in front on the run for the sixth furlong. 
Leading the way to the sixth furlong came the fillies from the Chilman, Dwyer, Chapman and Hopkins stable with the filly from the Gibson stable forced to retire. She’ll be back this Gibson filly, plenty of grunt in this one!  And now there were four! Will the experience of the fillies from the Chapman and Hopkins stables outclass the two young Chilman and Dwyer fillies? Once again the filly from the Hopkins stable was involved in a chip-off with the Dwyer stable entry. Can this Hopkins filly keep on winning these chip-offs? What a gutsy performance! And so the full of promise filly from the Dwyer stable was forced to retire.
Excitement was mounting as the field could smell the finish line – and now there were three as they headed for the second last furlong.  Who will survive? The fillies from the Chapman and Hopkins stables or the rank outsider from the Chilman stable?  With heads down the race was on in earnest – oh no! Not another chip-off! Can you believe it – it’s between the fillies from the Chapman stable and, once again, the highly weighted, filly from the Hopkins stable!  Unbelievable! The highly experienced, competitive Hopkins filly again survives and so it’s off to the pasture for the filly from the Chapman stable. A great run but not quite good enough today.
And so it was down to two – gallop by gallop down to the finish line they came – neck to neck! It came down to the final dash for the finish line and, wow, what a touch of class this outsider from the Chilman stable showed. One outstanding bolt for the line and the Chilman filly was over! The winner! The crowd roared their appreciation as the filly from the Hopkins stable graciously admitted defeat.  What a race!  You should have been there! Congratulations to the Chilean stable on a great win!!!

STABLEFORD SHOOTOUT



At this stage the Shootout is on subject to the weather in the next 24 hours! The bunkers will be out of play and we will use a modified course. Jenny and I will walk the course again in the morning to make final decisions. We will post a definite decision on the Blog and Facebook by 10.00 am. We hope as many people as possible will come to cheer on the competitors. (It might be a good idea to not wear your best clothes and to put on some old waterproof shoes!!)
Regardless of whether or not the golf is played the "after party" will still be on from about 2.00pm upstairs.
See you then. Cross fingers for no more rain.

We brought home the Shield

Yesterday the CCWGA 4BBB Par Classic & Gwen Thompson Memorial Shield was held at Wyong. Breakers had teams of Judi Eaton and Michelle Collyer and Jill Lavery and Jenny Chapman playing for Bonville. Judi and Michelle had a +3 to win on a count back and we would like to congratulate them as they are off to BONVILLE 👏👏👏


Our two other teams playing for the Gwen Thompson Shield were Janice Adlard and Sally Hopkins and Bronwyn Dwyer and Michelle Hughes.

Bronwyn and Michelle won the daily event with +5 on a count back over Janice and Sally.


This is were the news gets even better, with the four teams combined scores we finished on +11 giving us the win for the Gwen Thompson Shield. Breakers haven't won the Shield since 1995. Big Congratulations to our Breakers Team.

Janice had NTP in 1st Div on the 4th and Judi won the 100's club.










Board Results

Hi Ladies
Congratulations to Bronwyn Dwyer who was successful in being appointed to the Club’s Board
We had a very unusual situation with Peter Wilson and myself tied in votes for 2nd.
After much deliberation it was found that the Club had to ‘draw names from a hat’ in this situation.
We attended this draw at 5pm today and under close scrutiny  Peter’s name was drawn.
It was one of those ‘what is meant to be’ situations.
Bronwyn will make a fantastic Board member and they are very lucky to have her.
Hope you will join me in supporting Bronwyn at the AGM at 6pm on Wednesday evening.
What a week!
Regards
Charmaine

Very Sad News

Hi Ladies
This is difficult to write but I have to let you know that our lovely friend Margaret Thorpe passed away in the early hours of this morning.
Margie put up a brave fight but in the end it was too much for her. She will be missed by many.
We will keep you updated once we know funeral arrangements. Two of Margie’s family members are overseas at the moment so there may be some delay.
With sadness
Charmaine.

PINK DAY


Hi Ladies

Our Pink Day yesterday was a huge success despite the rain.  It was a shame we had to cancel the golf side of things but we will have another chance on 8th November.

Thank you to all the ladies who came to the Club in the rain mostly decked out in pink.  We had 24 raffle prizes plus two exclusive ballet tickets for our silent auction thanks to some very generous sponsors.    You will be pleased to know that we raised $1848 with the raffle and the auction.  There will be more to add to this after our game on 8th November, so our charity ‘Look Good Feel Better’ will be receiving a very healthy donation from us this year.  The generosity of our ladies is always amazing.  Even some who could not attend left money with others to purchase raffle tickets.

So well done ladies and a big thank you.

Regards

Charmaine

PINK DAY CANCELLED

Rain heading our way forecast nasty.  See you all at 11am. Monster raffle drawn at 12pm silent auction starting at 11am. See you all at 11am bring your money.

Wednesday, 3 October 2018

PINK DAY

We know the forecast is not good. However, we have organized lots of fantastic prizes for the raffle, ntps , and the golf winners so we are reluctant to call it off at this stage.
So, please wait until the morning to make a decision on whether you will play.We will let you know what is happening via Facebook and the blog hopefully by 7am.
If it is possible, we will play, and may decide to make the event nine holes only. If teams are not complete we can combine them. If that isn’t feasible, then we will go to Plan B and cancel the golf. 
Regardless of what happens with the golf, we need your support to raise as much as we can from the raffles. At least some of the many golf prizes, which have been donated, will be added to the raffle and don’t forget there is the silent auction for the ballet tickets. 
So, we will also let you know in the morning what time to come to the club for the coffee/lunch/raffles/auction. 
If no golf, this will happen about 11am. Hopefully you can use some of the money you were going to spend on golf, for extra raffle tickets.

BREAKERS AGM. Tomorrow is the final day for nominations for the committee.   Also don’t forget to vote for Bronwyn and Charmaine for the Club Board from 2pm tomorrow if you have not already done so.
