Captains' Charity Day
Thirty teams took part in Captains' Charity Day on Sunday followed by a charity auction and a great evening listening to Barry, Nick, Tom and Neil playing their guitars and singing at the open mic night. Who knew we had so much musical talent at the club.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers and helpers on the day from those on the desk to those in the hut on the 10th tee, a very pleasant break halfway through the round.
The golf competition was won with 97pts by David Gingell, Julian Scott, Simon Sharrett and Jason Burton followed by the team of Hugh Turley, Liam Turley, Matt Dean and Ivor Graham in second with 46pts. The third placed team was that of Len Mrowiec, Trevor Spires, Keith Talmage and Ben Rhymes with 95pts.

Dean Mavis did a fantastic job in the evening gently coaxing the maximum value of the auction items from all the very generous people who attended and enjoyed bidding for some amazing lots.
A personal thanks must go to Amanda who, with help from Linda, linking up with Peter and Laura put a huge amount of time and effort into the organisation of the day and made sure it was a huge success.
After all the dust had settled the total raised on the day for the charities, Loose Ends and Dingley's Promise, was £7k so a huge thank you must also go to everyone who turned out to play on the day, rolled dice for Mulligan's, tried to spot the ball, picked an envelope in the Tombola or came to the evening and bid for the auction items. The representatives of both Charities were at the evening and were both extremely grateful for the help and effort of all at Newbury & Crookham.
Finally, congratulations to Captain Peter and Lady Captain Laura for putting on an amazing day!!
