2017 Electrical Trades tournament – At Waitikiri the 69th.
Waitikiri
A smaller than usual field of 76 players took to Waitikiri on a superb day sunny, clear and not a breath of wind. The course was in good shape although still a little damp in places after the wettest winter in years. A reasonable take up of hole sponsors and special thanks to Bremca & Hamer for the on course BBQ’s and to Olivia from Simx for the jelly shots. Anthony Dale from ATT provided a little distraction on the 17th with a pitching competition. Active Hornby provided pre match coffee cart. Thanks to all.
A good prize table with a prize for all, Rhys took photos of the winners.
A good number of hopefuls tried out for this year’s team to Nelson, all the usual suspects plus some 1st timers. The team to Nelson is Marcel Bramao, Nige Starkie, Matt Evers Carmichael, Tony Voice, Jeramie Neaves, Angus Neaves, Rhys Jamieson & Grant Thomson. We have 2 representatives of the Gold Sponsors Rhys (Philips) & Grant (Radcliffe Electrical) and possibly a 1st in a father & son combination. Special thanks to Master Electricians Canterbury Westland for their sponsorship of our playing shirts & caps.
