The Club's Annual Charity fund raising day, Chris Harbour Day, so called after the founder of the day and Past Captain of the Club was blessed with exceptional weather and a fine turn out of supporting teams from far and wide. The course too was immaculate and rewarding of shots which did not stray too far from the fairway, the rough this year after a wet spring being lush, long and somewhat penal.

Our visitors were able to see and admire for the first time our newly re-furbished club house. One player - a Member (catering business and son of a Member) was intent on testing the strength of the bar windows with a thinned approach shot to the 18th green. Much to the disappointment of the MD of Camel Glass who was nearby the window withstood the test and those inside survived without spilling a drop of their refreshments.

The exact sums raised for Charity are not yet known but they will be considerable including at least £1000 from the auction conducted with skill and humour by Malcolm Cole. Items auctioned included gifts of hospitality from St Enodoc Hotel, Dormy House Rock, Bridge Bistro in Wadebridge, wine and Masters Golf memorabilia donated by Luke Donald, England rugby tickets, golf at Burnham & Berrow and a number of others.

In presenting the many prizes the Club Captain Tony Rounsevell thanked the numerous sponsors and helpers, too many to list here, who had contributed to a successful day. The winning team of Martin Clarke, Andrew Place, Andrew Clegg and Mike Williams each received a new electric trolley and lithium battery.
