Just a reminder about the re-scheduled Golf Day on 16/09/22 at Hawarden Golf Club, which seems to have disappeared during the changeover to the new server. This is fast approaching now and I had to re-schedule due to lack of numbers in early July, the only confirmations I have received to date are from the far reaches of the UK, I am very disappointed that more local people to the Merseyside Area have not decided, (to date) upon attending. This is in Memory of Ted Draper a great Evertonian and Toffeewebber who sadly passed early this year.

Ted actually turned up last year at Aldersey Green, and started the Competition by hitting the first drive from the First Tee, and this during his Chemo Therapy Treatments. So please come on lads if an 80 year old man who was ill, can turn up, surely some more can. Although there are Prizes this is more of both a fun Golf Day and a chance to meet familiar names on TW.

Golf Handicaps preferable, but not essential but an honest assessment of ability would be appreciated in the purposes of fairness. In addition to the main prize the ' Teddy Draper Trophy ', there will be prizes for nearest the pin on three par 3's, and also for the Longest Dives in two Sections, Seniors (over 55) and for those who are a tad younger. Ted's widow has volunteered to Award the Prizes on the day, so will accompany some members of their family for the Presentation and the after-match Meal. Some of the younger members of the extended Draper Family will participate in the Golf too, but I don't have the exact numbers at time of doing this post.

Please commit for the Day and support Ted's Charity and of Course Cancer Research again. The Cost for Bacon Butties and Coffee on arrival, 18 Holes of Golf, followed by a Two Course Meal is £40. The Course is quite hilly in places but walkable/doable for those with some degree of fitness, there are a limited number of Buggies but these will have to be ordered well in advance. The Club also has a few Electric Trolleys for Hire, and of course the traditional manual ones too. The course is in superb condition (especially the greens) despite having endured long spells of scorching weather.

Thanks for reading if you have got this far, and hope to see more people on the Day. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me on either del_kath@yahoo.co.uk or on 07565140075.
