Sponsors Day Report

sponsors iconMany thanks to Albert Thompson for providing a report and photographs of last Friday's Sponsors Day at the Club.  Albert writes: Sponsors Day at Minto on Friday 29th September was a huge success as usual. A few of our Sponsors were unable to attend due to work commitments but they sent along representatives and the several teams enjoyed the day even though there were a few light showers along with the sunshine.It was a great opportunity for the various companies to have a get together and play on the course that they very generously contribute to.

The draw and final preparations were made on the previous evening by the Sponsorship Committee.

The day started with Captain Stewart Paisley welcoming each representative as they arrived and everyone then tucked in to coffee and bacon rolls while old friendships were renewed. Each player was given a bag of "goodies" and all the teams marched off to the tees to have fun and do battle! The Texas Scramble was played with great enthusiasm and when all had finished they satdown to a well-earned meal and refreshments provided by the Club.

The Captain thanked the Sponsors for their very valuable support and then presented the prizes.

There were some excellent scores, the winning teams being:

1st: Billy Mackenzie (Painter & Decorator), Ross Macleod & Ian Frizzel (Lowland Gas), Scott Campbell (Towergate Insurance). (54.4).
2nd: Henry Oliver & Chris Highton (Geo & Jas Oliver WS,  David Bryson & Ronnie Horsburgh (Fraser James Partnership). (56).
3rd: Richard Hopley & Ian Hyde (Buccleuch Arms Hotel), Ron Elliot & Albert Thompson (Minto Golf Club.) (56.1).
 
Nearest the pin (8th), Henry Oliver. (17th) Ian Frizzel.

Albert has also kindly supplied some photographs and captions:
