Truckies tee up

NORTH Coast Truck Drivers Incorporated held its 10th Annual Charity Golf Day the previous Sunday at the Casino Golf Club.

There were 144 adults that teed off at 9.30am in beautiful sunny conditions.

Along with the usual barbecues and bar, to make for a more family friendly atmosphere face painting and a colouring-in competition were included for the children.

A Chip-In competition, run by Troy Carey, also added another dimension to the day with a number coming close and then returning determined to win.

The novelty hole at the 12th was well-sponsored by the golfers.

Players were back in the clubhouse by 4pm with presentations starting at 4.30pm.

Winners were W. Underhill, M. Keep, S. Dendle and G. Eastman.

Runners-up were M. Norris, N. Gillett, B. Bevin and W. Morgan.

Next was the drawing of golf cards for prizes three through to 15, followed by a great raffle consisting of 103 prizes.

After the final count, about $11,000 was raised on the day, to be divided between Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter, Casino Rescue Squad and Tabulam SES.

NCTD said it was extremely grateful and humbled by the support shown by the community.
