Our third game of the year was held at Parkview and I thought the course was in great condition and a good test of golf. It was the start of the Gary Player Knock Out and a lot of games were played, well done to the winners and to the loser’s, good luck in the Plate.
The Andrew Mentis charity is starting to gain some traction and thanks once again to all those individuals who have dipped into their wallets to support our fund raising efforts. For those of you that don’t know Tyron Zaaiman, it means that you have somehow managed to avoid his raffle ticket sales. Not only is he the raffle ticket seller but also the debt collector for sales made, and not yet paid. For the month of August, Tyron will continue to sell the second TaylorMade Golf Club draw and the Rugby Day Raffle, as there are still a number of tickets left. The Rugby Day Raffle Prize is really worthwhile, it includes a weekend stay at the Fairway hotel, a 4 four ball round of Golf at Randpark Golf Course and a TaylorMade putter.
The draw for the TaylorMade clubs and bag will be done at our Andrew Mentis Golf Day at on 4 September 2014 to be held at Randpark Golf Club Bushwillow Course, the entry forms are available for both morning and afternoon fields and will be distributed via email by Sid Rickhoff in Bev’s absence.
For those new Nomads that haven’t participated in an Andrew Mentis day before, it is an opportunity to invite guests and prospective Nomads to join us. According to our current waiting list, it would be good idea to get some prospective members added to it. There must be at least one Nomad in the four ball. There will be hole sponsorship available on the day and as in previous years, we will be looking for prize sponsors and donations. Anybody willing to assist with either of these should contact myself or Sean Ledden.
The Rugby Day at Ellis Park on the 25th July, between the Springboks and New Zealand was a great success as a fund raiser and a party, but very cold for the fans who attended. The game was enjoyed by all but was disappointing, because once again we went down to New Zealand at Ellis Park. We have a good side and I am sure they will do well at the World Cup,
Good luck Bokkie.
