All the section/group leaders/captains will be making their day ‘special’ in one way or another providing a bit of their own history along with any memorabilia they have regarding their group for display on their day. Prizes for each day are glassware from Inscriptions Truro (Pannier Market) and will have the 125th logo inscribed on them. Ali who runs the company will keep the stencil so if other members want a vase/glass themselves having failed to win one they can contact her either at her stall or on her web www.glass-engravers-cornwall.co.uk.
The decorated clubhouse will be made a bit more special for the week with memorabilia on display with originals behind glass, digital copies on display and also on the TV!
The Hickory Challenge
The highlight of the week will be the Hickory Challenge in a format designed for everyone to enjoy, it is meant to be an all inclusive, young and old(er), male and female Texas Scramble. The entry sheet will go up this week with an “interesting” Stuart Morley photo on it. South of England Hickory are bringing 55 right handed and 5 left handed sets and we hope to be able to give 2 sets to each fourball, which they can share.
The course will start on the Holywell playing holes 1,2, 11-15 (so 7 holes in all) then onto the Church course to play holes 3 to 7 and finishing with 17 and 18. All will play off forward social tees with period dress being optional (any period of the 125 yrs); Tiger and Tootsie, Tinners Court, Truro have a shop full of vintage clothes for those so minded! Nick Reader also hopes to be there with his Victorian camera.
It is strongly rumoured that Tony Rounsevell is being brought back out of retirement to organise the weather so that we can enjoy the evening BBQ and jazz band. BBQ tickets which will be available from the bar soon will be sold separately from the competition entry.
