These are the trophies on offer for the winners of the 2009 ALPSP / Ringgold Charity Texas Scramble team competition at Hinksey Heights Golf Course (see http://www.oxford-golf.co.uk/) on the western outskirts of Oxford.
We still have a couple of places available!
The intention is to provide a fun golf event with a little networking which raises money for charity. All of the proceeds will therefore go to the MS Society (http://www.mssociety.org.uk/).
The event will take place on Friday 11 September 2009 with the first team teeing off at 3pm. As publishing folk we are used to challenging conditions and we will therefore play no matter what the weather!
Hinksey Heights is easily accessed from the A34 Oxford ring-road.
The organizers (Helen Henderson and myself) will be placing each of the players into teams to try to ensure that there is a relatively even distribution of experience. The teams will be announced on the day and Team Captains will be determined by lot.
The golf will be followed by a barbeque (which is included in the price) and cash bar during which the winners will be announced and presented with their trophies. We expect the barbeque to start around 6:30 and the event will formally end at around 7:30 – 8:00 (though players will be welcome to stay beyond that!)
Participation in the event costs £30 which includes green fees, barbeque and a donation to the MS Society of £10 (any additional surplus, should it arise for any reason, will also be donated to the MS Society).
In order to keep the administration simple we are asking players to pay on the day but places MUST BE BOOKED AND CONFIRMED IN ADVANCE!
We are assuming that players will bring there own clubs, otherwise clubs will need to be hired from Hinksey Heights – please contact me for details.
We will make our best efforts to try to arrange car-shares from the venue of the ALPSP International Conference (the Oxford Belfry). Otherwise players will have to make their own way to Hinksey Heights.
