Hi reader,
2018 Anzac Day Sponsors


Thanks to Cooroy/Pomona RSL Sub Branch and Vets ex servicemen (Errol Radley, Tony Kershaw, John Cairns, Russ Rylance, Wayne McKinnon, Kevin Olsen, John Butler, Tony Bernhagen, John Round) - for sponsoring the day.

Tony Kershaw presented the prizes on behalf of the Cooroy/Pomona RSL Sub Branch and our ex servicemen and, spoke about the good work undertaken by the sub branch. For those who remember him, the sub branch provides support to Bob Daley, a long time Cooroy Vet, by way of regular visits.

Thanks to our BBQ cooks - Jim Henderson, Con Russell, Ron Blount and Rod Booth who headed out before the main field to squeeze in 18 holes before cooking up a storm, literally. For about about 90 minutes they bragged to anyone in the clubhouse who would listen (or cared) that they were leading the competition. Then the main field started to arrive back in the clubhouse and things went quiet!

Thanks also to Wayne for kicking off the BBQ work and to Brian McLoughlin for helping out.

Winners: Graeme Caffyn Team - 53.125 (Graeme Caffyn, Andrew Aves, Joe Daniels, Grant Smallacombe)

Runners Up:
Peter Fryer Team - 54.125 (Peter Fryer, Tony Bernhagen, Michael Loe, Tony Kershaw)
