Success for the Gary Chopper Reid Memorial Day

On Thursday 9th Aug a field of 48 golfers gathered at the Ryde Parramatta Golf Club on a picturesque blue-sky morning for the annual Gary ''Chopper'' Reid Memorial Day to remember our great friend Gary Reid who sadly passed away from melanoma.

We had a strong representation from our own Vow Social Golf Club and friends, as well as 4 of 'Choppers' close golfing buddies who were members at the club and of course some generous lenders to help support the day.

The golf club set the course difficulty to 'medium difficulty' which proved to be true with some tough pin placements on greens and a representation of the total scoring on the day.

We had both a men's and a women's competition for the first time and will certainly be looking to grow the women's comp each, and every year. Both competitions were tight finishes, however, were taken out by friends of Boggy Wards' and a husband and wife duo Stewart and Kirsty Kirkby.

  • Winner Men's - Stewart Kirkby
  • Winner Women's - Kirsty Kirkby

We successfully managed to raise a total of $2,300 and has been donated to the Melanoma Research Institute on behalf of all of those who played and donated.

Of course, this day couldn't have gone ahead without generous sponsorship and support from the following:

  • Vow Financial
  • Ryde Parramatta Golf Club
  • Vero/Suncorp
  • ING
  • Scottish Pacific
  • Valiant Finance

Special thanks must also go to the Vow Social Golf Club committee who organised the day. We will be looking to lock in the event again for next year and will hopefully grow the event.
