Glorious weather on Saturday 28th August was a bonus for the 17 teams of players taking part in the Help for Heroes/Ethan’s Journey of Smiles Charity Texas Scramble. Wigtown & Bladnoch Golf Club were delighted to host this event, which was organised by Derek McCreadie. Many thanks must also go to all the local businesses who contributed towards the event. All entry money, sponsorship and raffle money was given towards the fundraising, with the total money raised exceeding £3000! This will be split equally between the 2 charities. The results were:
1st Neil Whyte, Kenny Dawson, Evelyn Thomson (scramble specialist!) and Robert Thomson 63 – 11.7 = 51.3
2nd Derek McCreadie, Ewan Marshall, Roddy Cooksley, Stuart Kirkwood 60 – 7.9 = 52.1
3rd Stuart MacTier, Sam McTier, Fraser Hughes, Keith Penrose 58 – 5.7 = 52.3
A fabulous day, well done to all who organised, took part or contributed.
