Flag Day at Gaudet Luce

On Sunday, 27 July, eleven EWBG players joined members and guests at Gaudet Luce Golf Club for the annual Flame Fighters Flag Day to raise funds for the Association.  As in the past fourteen years the event was sponsored by A&E Fire Protection.

Several Gaudet Luce members finished the 18 holes with six shots remaining.  The winner reached the 2nd green.

Two EWBG players, Peter Hodgkinson and Derrick Sheridan, had five shots of their handicap left after holing out on the eighteenth.  Derrick won the competition with his ball only a few inches from the 1st hole while Peter’s was several feet away.  Peter and his guide Margaret Hodgkinson were presented with crystal glasses as runners up and Derrick and Matt Sheridan received crystal decanters.

Once again the event raised several hundreds of pounds for EWBG and our thanks go to A&E Fire Protection and Gaudet Luce members and everyone involved in the organisation of the day.
