The ATA’s annual charity Golf Day was held on the 3rd May and despite the wind, the weather was perfect for the event. 17 teams turned out on the green for a great day of golf and networking. Being the first industry event held since May last year, it was handshakes and smiles all around.
Following 18 holes, everyone settled down afterwards in the club house for canapes and drinks. Once the final team arrived, the awards presentations began.
Congratulations to the winners of the day being the U Games and EducationAll team consisting of Andrew McCosker, Mick Di Prinzio, Duane Cannon and Trevor Mair. They had a winning score of 54.875.
The wooden spoon went to Dave Watson and Michael Redmond of Moose Toys as well as Rob Alban of DGR Toys and Darren Neil of Toyworld / Toy Kingdom.
On the day, a putting competition was held as well as nearest the pin on hole 11 and longest drive on hole 9.
