Thanks for organising a great day for a very worthy cause and i hope the event has raised plenty of money for the charity after such a good turnout. i certainly enjoyed it , with the course being in great condition for the time of year.

Best wishes to my playing partner today Bob Haynes and hope to see you on the course again soon.

Will you be inputing the scorecards Darren or do we need to do it?

I wish to add my thanks to Darren and all his helpers. I had a great day and my golf wasn't that bad. Thanks to my playing partners for making it such a good day OH! and Trevor things can only get better. Well done to Stuart in particular sinking that putt.

I finally want to thank everyone for thier best wishes.

I would just like to say congratulations Darren on organising a really good day for a very worthwhile charity and at such a short notice.

congratulations on raising a very nice amount of money towards the charity as well!!!!!

as i said on the day darren there is no need to thank me as i was more than willing to help out, the main reason for this was i (and many others) have known bob haynes for a while now and wish him all the best with his treatment and wish him a very speedy recovery.

Personally i thought my help was insignificant as all i did really was take lots of pics  on the day (thanks to tim hawkins for the loan of the camera).

on a side note i have just found out that another good friend of mine has been given less than 6 weeks to live after getting pancreatic cancer a few months back and the treatment has failed, i know this is a different form of cancer but the more awareness we raise from these sort of events then hopefully with all the funds we raise ONE DAY maybe the scientists out there can find a cure.

congratulaions also to all the players who took part in this event i hope you all had a good day and i didnt put too many of you off with the camera clicking!!

Brilliant day Darren, really enjoyed it even though I played like a Donkey on the back nine, can't believe the weather could be like that in October.  Sun shines on the righteous I reckon.  And thanks to Darren M for taking 350 photo's which I'll sort through eventually - practice makes perfect in photography, and you certainly got a bit of practice in..

Will crop this pic later, but the 40 footer is on it's way in this one....
