Fundraiser for Caddies

Dear Team Captains
As you know, we ran a fund raiser event for MCLGA at Baberton GC on Sat 3rd Sept. The funds were raised to support the travel and accommodation costs of the county team's caddies at the County Finals in Aboyne and beyond!
So far we have raised just over £2600 and hope that the total will rise towards £2800 as we sell off the remaining MCLGA tees at the County Autumn meeting and AGM.
We cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness and generosity in supporting this event but here goes.
    Firstly, a huge thank you to Baberton GC who generously gave us courtesy of the course.
    To Lexus, our main sponsor, we owe a big thanks for their prizes, donation and for printing off the competition cards.
    Karen and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Keith Nicholson (no relation) for his help throughout the planning and organising phases as well as on the day.
    Lisa Kilpatrick and Maureen McLeod at MCLGA for handling all of the money and entry forms.
    The many contributors to the competition and raffle prizes (see lists attached for team and raffle prizes). Through their generosity we were able to give out 6 team prizes and 2 nearest the pin prizes as well as an amazing 85 raffle prizes!
    Our helpers on the day who manned the registration desk: Alison McBride; Gail Joughin; Helen Ross; Jacky Burnett; Maggie McPherson; Pamela Williamson; and Tracy Laughland.
    The catering, bar and green staff at Baberton for helping to create a great day out for all of us.
    And all of you and your teams for coming along, supporting the event and making the day a great success.

Some of you already have your prizes, for those that don't, where possible, the team and raffle prizes will be transported to your clubs. Baberton members should be able to collect their prizes from the pro shop from Thursday this week. 

There were 3 items of property found on the course that most likely belong to a competitor. A GPS device, sun glasses and a distinctive large ball marker. If you would like to reclaim one, the GPS and glasses were handed in to Baberton at the bar and the marker is with Zandra.

Thank you all so very much for your support,
Karen & Wendy
