Golf Helps Basketball
The recent Ambrose Golf tournament at the Rarotonga Golf club was a huge success for the Cook Islands Men's Youth Development Basketball Team. As part of their fundraising efforts for their upcoming tour to Auckland the boys turned to the Golf club for help and the results were well over what they expected.
A total of 22 teams turned up for a fun (some more serious) afternoon of golf and good old competition. Some of the unintentional challenges came from BCI and Westpac banks, The Environment Department, Prime Ministers Office and Ministry of Works and even the Trust companies got in on the action.
Some of the winners on the night included:-
Best Net - Titans - led by Maki Karati
Best Gross - 88 FM - led by Nick Henry
Runner Up - Runway Store - led by Junior Manuela
Youngest team - Mister and Us - led by Nga Puna
Best Costume - Yes Minister - led by Diane Puna
The Cook Islands Men's Youth Development Basketball team would like to thank the following people who contributed to the success of the night.
· Rarotonga Golf Club · CITC Liquor Centre · Bond Store · Frangi · FBI · Palace Takeaway · Country Fried Chicken · Empire Theatre · Telecom Cook Islands · Michigan Motors · Meatco · Judges and Phil Urlich
But it doesn't end there, the boys will be running a Meals on Wheels service on Wednesday 11th of Oct where you can pre-order your plates of food and it will be hand delivered by the boys themselves.
