VETS AFFAIRS JULY
Who is our major sponsor? What does this sponsor do for us? What can we do for them?? What, where, when is our next away/host day?
Well, another financial year has come and gone and I got to thinking about the people who sponsor the Vets section of the club and just what that sponsorship means. Sponsorship to be successful must have an element of mutual back scratching, and this is where our Vets members can play their part. Our major sponsor is Mal Wilson's "On Course" proshop which sponsors our Monthly Mug events providing both the prize vouchers and the 'mugs'. Mal and his crew will do deals on any item in the store, so make sure you give our major sponsor a crack at your business. You might just be surprised at how good a deal can be done. Thanks Mal by the way!
Through the auspices of Kev Brake, the IGA at Mt Coolum has generously agreed to donate a great fruit/veges/chook tray, which constitutes our major raffle prize on our Zone home-host days. The IGA at Mt Coolum features a wide range of items and their fruit and veges department offers high quality produce (much of it local) at very competitive prices. So when you're over that way do a bit of back scratching (Argus donates the bubbly for the fruit tray - big deal!)
Our other big sponsor is Joan Grace and her contribution for the Alan Horsfall shield is most generous and much appreciated. Joan is a life member and Patron of NGC so when you see her around, there is no need to scratch her back, but understand and appreciate her contribution to the Vets.
The Sunshine Coast has hardly lived up to its name in recent times but we have been fortunate lately in that we hosted Headland and 25 June, although numbers were down due to the risky weather. Those who turned up had a great day and Mick's crew did a fantastic job with the course.
We also just snuck in a host day on 9 July which saw visitors from Horton Park and Mt Coolum and 100 people playing golf on our course, eating lunch and having a drink. It was a most successful day although very damp underfoot. Thanks Nigel for your substantial contribution.
Our next event is a visit to Tin Can Bay on 7 August and members are invites to make the effort to play what is a good course and enjoy a good host club. We are experimenting with a car pool arrangement for this trip and are looking for people with bigger vehicles to take another member or two along.
