The Outback Emus, one of the Silver City’s biggest champions of junior sport, held their annual charity golf day last weekend, and Outback Emu, Steve Odgers told the Truth, “It was our biggest one yet.”
“The temperature was fantastic, we had a slight breeze and about 120 players turned up on the day, which is pretty much the perfect number for a day like that,” Mr Odgers continued.
“Everyone had a great day out. The girls who won the NAGA award, also won the best dressed award – so they needed a wheelbarrow to take all their trophies home.”
Sponsorship is pivotal for events like these, and Mr Odgers expressed his gratitude, “I need to thank the many sponsors who made the day the success that it was.”
Ross Clark, a fellow Outback Emu, was holed up in the kitchen all day and was at pains to point out the contribution of his co-cooks who kept everyone’s stomachs full throughout the day.
“We just want to acknowledge all the hard work my fellow cooks did throughout the day – Terry Netherwood, Rick Cooper and Dennis Cetinich,” Mr Clark told the Truth.
The next endeavour for the Emus is the sale of their ever-popular Melbourne Cup trifecta tickets, the club’s secondary fundraiser, as they gear up for next year’s Pursuit of Excellence in Sports awards.
“Early next year we will call for nominations for the Pursuit of Excellence in Sports, and we will go from there. Until then it is business as usual. We are up for any requests for financial assistance from junior sporting bodies.”
