40thHalberg tournament, Napier GC, Thursday 12 September:

In this Halberg report, there is a thank you letter, ‘By the Numbers’ sheet, and report on the tournament.

To everyone who had something to do with the hugely successful 40thHalberg Disability Sport Foundation Tournament a big THANK YOU.

Please accept this note as a sincere gesture. There were over 250 of you involved in the tournament and to contact you all would be a huge and costly task.

Attached with this note is a breakdown of the numbers associated with the tournament.

We appreciate all the sponsors, donors, prize givers, helpers, officials, guests, visitors, Napier GC, raffle & auction buyers, golf clubs and players.  Thanks to Pub Charity and Mitre 10 Waipukurau we were able to put up an unbelievable prize table.
