Auckland 2020

There is nothing that is permanent except change. – Heraclitus.
Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher maintained that change is the only reality in nature. I am guessing that Heraclitus never played golf at Pakuranga Golf Club in our Electrical Trades Golf Tournament, every year we can almost guarantee that nothing will change and it will rain, it has been suggested that we should be getting sponsorship from Watercare for services toward the filling our dams.

Undeterred by the weather all eighty four entrants arrived and headed out into what turned out to be not such a bad day after all, we had the cyclonic squawl that managed to blow a couple of trucks into the harbour bridge but this only lasted four or five minutes and the weather turned out reasonably OK.
It must have as the golf was hotly contested with a number of quality rounds put in by the regular golfers and in the Ambrose section.

Many thanks to our sponsors whom in trying times were still very supportive of our event, with the nationals on hold until next year there was not quite the usual desperation for fund raising however it is always good to have a generous prize table for those who attend the day and there was no disappointment in that area with 80% of the attendees going home with a prize.

The Active Electrical Ambrose Team Cup winners – Prime Electrical Team, Justin White, Stephen Gibson, Bryn Barnes Webb and Patrick Nolan with a very impressive score in the conditions (Nett 52), R/Up team was Ian Vaeteru’s team “Fore Skins” with Don, Rima and Chris. (Nett 53.6) Last year’s winners Active Electrical #1 would take out third spot on (Nett 59).
