So I've just had a great couple of days at the inaugural Foremost Conference which was held at MK Dons football stadium in Milton Keynes. What a great venue! 180 PGA Professionals were there, attending seminars and sharing best practice so it was a really useful get together.
One of the highlights was from motivational speaker Jamie Edwards on the second morning, which was probably the kick start we all needed to the day after the awards dinner the previous evening!
The men's Chicken Run competition was cancelled on Saturday due to the heavy rains of the previous twenty four hours and the ladies Four Clubs & a Putter competition on Thursday was reduced to nine holes because of the weather. The winner with eighteen points was Diana Hogben and she can be seen below receiving her prize from last year's winner Claire Makin. Two players scored 17 points but Michelle Rea secured second place on a card playoff, pushing Gill Kay into third. Despite the bad start to the day, the sun did actually make an appearance as Terri Broadbent's other photo shows.
The Christmas Fair in aid of the lady captain's charity took place on Tuesday 8th November and was a great success. I understand between £500 and £1000 was raised for JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity.
The photo shows just some of the many volunteers who worked really hard to make it happen on the bring and buy stall. Well done everyone for supporting such a great cause.
