Vice Captains’ Junior
Our Vice Captains’ Ann Maher and Kieran Cunningham have organised a classic for their Vice Captains’ prize this year with all the money raised going to our Junior club. The competition is a three person Champagne Scramble with special prizes for ladies only teams. It is being held this coming weekend the 6th and 7th of April. As this is for a very good cause please organise a team and ask your friends from other clubs as this is an open competition, all are welcome, if you want to play and have no team, contact Brendan or Louise on 052 6132213 and we will get a team for you.
A very successful Scramble and Raffle took place on Sunday, 24th and Tuesday 26th with all proceeds going to Daffodil Day. The Ladies Club would like to thank our sponsors and Slievenamon Bridge Club for their kind contribution. A sum o f €500 was raised for this very worthy cause.
