Competition Fixtures and Results

We had a great turnout for the Club Fundraiser on Sunday. The fundraiser is an important day for the club as money raised is solely used to fund club activities. Competition prizes, team entry into inter club competitions, cover the team expenses, handicapping software licence, the online booking (BRS) software licence and much more.

I’d like to especially thank all our very kind sponsors. Can I please ask every member to keep these sponsors in mind and if the opportunity arises avail of their services.
