NORTHERN MINI NATIONALS / NOORDELIKE NASIONALE MINI`S - MAGALIESPARK

The Northern Mini Nationals was hosted by West Rand branch on 14th and 15th September at Magaliespark. The arrangements of the host branch ran like clockwork and they even got the weather right. A full field of 120 players, represented by nine branches and three members of the NMC, battled it out on a challenging golf course.

Thank you to West Rand and the management of Magaliespark, for a memorable two days enjoyed by all.

The Winners of the betterball team competition were as follows:

1 North West 171 points
2 West Rand 170 points
3 East Rand 166 points (o.c.o)
4 Highveld 166 points

 

Die Noordelike Mini Nasionale byeenkoms het plaasgevind op die 14de en 15de September 2015 by Magaliespark. Wesrand was die gasheer. Vanaf die eerste bof hou tot die laaste set, het alles baie goed afgeloop. `n Totaal van 120 spelers vanaf die nege verskillende streke het deelgeneem. Ons drie NMC lede het die baan baie moeilik gevind. Die algemene span wenners was Noordwes wie net-net Wesrand geklop het met een punt. Baie dankie aan Wesrand en die bestuur van Magaliespark vir `n ongelooflike twee dae wat almal baie geniet het.

Die volledige uitslae is beskikbaar op die webblad.

CANSA / KANSA

The 23rd Cansa challenge took place at Sun City on the 19th and 20th October 2015. This is the largest charity golfing series in which 35 000 golfers played in tournaments throughout the year from 780 different golf clubs. Only 100 players qualified for this final round, and amongst them where the 3 representatives from the Sages regions who collected the most funds from their Cansa drive last year and included the National President.

The representation from the winning Branches were:

Large Branch Highveld Sarie Fourie
Medium Branch East Rand Ivan Currie
Small Branch Natal Central Rajen Rajpal

A total amount of R3 567 843 was collected for Cansa which included our contribution of R418 725 for 2014. For the past 9 years SAGES has contributed more than 3 million rand to the Cansa foundation.

The winners of the Cansa charity challenge at Sun City were:

1. Ladies overall Wilna Bezuidenhout Henties Bay
2. Men overall and B division Johnny Rossouw Central Gauteng

Many branches stage their Cansa days towards the end of the year, and I am confident that the outstanding funds will be paid over to Cansa thereby inflating the accumulative fund considerably.

Die 23ste Kansa uitdaging het plaas gevind by Sun City gedurende Oktober 2015. Dit was die grootse landswye fondsinsameling toernooi waarin 35 000 spelers vanaf 780 verskillende gholf klubs deelgeneem het. Een honderd spelers het in die finale rondte gespeel waarvan vier SAGES lede ingesluit was, 3 verteenwoordigers van die drie takke wat goed presteer het met hul bydrae aan KANSA.
`n Bedrag van R3 567 843 was verlede jaar bymekaar gemaak vir Kansa wat ons SAGES bydrae van R418 725 ingesluit het.
Die meeste van die takke hou hul KANSA fondsinsameling byeenkomste gedurende die laaste paar maande van die jaar. Ek glo dat ons lede weereens hul staal sal wys en uitstaande bedrae aan die KANSA takke sal oorbetaal.

Die takke wat die meeste fondse ingesamel het in die groepe Groot, Medium en Klein kon elk een een verteenwoordiger aanwys om in die finale rondte van die Kansa Uitdaging op Sun City te speel.

Die verteenwoordigers van die onderskeie takke was as volg:

Hoëveld Groot Sarie Fourie
Oosrand, Medium Ivan Currie
Sentraal Natal Klein Rajen Rajpal

GIGS AND GAGS / GHOLF STORIES

A word of thanks to our Vice President of SAGES Peet Roets for boosting our branch Cansa funds generated from the selling of the golf books.

Baie dankie aan die Visie President van SAGES, Peet Roets, wie se boekies ‘n aansienlike bydrae tot die takke se KANSA fondse gelewer het.

2016 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS / NASIONALE KAMPIOENSKAPPE

The 2016 SAGES National Championship will be hosted by Jimmy Gowans branch on both Randburg courses during the week of 6 – 10 June 2016 Three of the NMC members attended the nationals organising committee meeting of Jimmy Gowans branch that was held on the 12th of October in discussions of the 2016 Nationals.

The possibility of a shuttle service, affordable hotel accommodation and sponsorship was discussed with an organisation at Sun City, which can surely be to the benefit of our SAGES members.

Advertising on the back of our SAGES membership cards, printing of the cards and discount by the service provider was also discussed. Let us keep our fingers crossed that we will be able to tie that knot!

I wish the management of Jimmy Gowans the very best for hosting the 2016 Nationals.

Die 2016 Nasionale kampioenskappe word gehou in Johannesburg tydens die week van 6-10 Junie en Jimmy Gowans tak is die gasheer. Albei wedstryde sal op Randpark gespeel word. Die NBK het talle vergaderings al bygewoon en die vordering lyk goed. Daar bestaan `n moontlikheid dat ons `n borg kan kry om die onkoste te sny vir verblyf, en vervoer vanaf die lughawe en algemene borgskap vir die toernooi. Ons hou maar duim vas dat hierdie onderhandelings `n werklikheid sal word.
