Intohome Exhibitors Golf For Charity

August 2, 2000

Stratford-Upon-Avon (UK) - The English weather did its best to disrupt F&FI's 5th annual Atlantic Cup Charity Golf Tournament, which took place at the Welcombe Golf Course on 11 May, following Intohome.

The only element that was missing was snow as 17 intrepid golfers completed their round, through bright sun, a little rain and some of the strongest and winds, deemed very cold for an English spring day.

In the absence of F&FI publisher Eric Schneider, who was laid low with a foot injury, Peter Gilmore, F&FI's U.K. advertising representative hosted the day, which saw Andrew Moore of Moygashel and Simon Greenland of Greenland Agencies walk away with the coveted Atlantic Cup. The trophy was supplemented by two bottles by Steven Hargreaves of Hilden Manufacturing Accrington.

Chris Hall of TPS, organizers of Intohome, took the prize for being Nearest the Pin. His prize, a bottle of whisky, had been donated by Byton, Morris, Winfield. Henry Rawson of Bianca China was presented with a pair of cut crystal brandy ballons donated by TPS for whacking the longest drive of the day.

All players agreed that the day was worthwhile, both in terms of depressurizing after the rigors of working the exhibition, and in terms of money raised: $3,700, which was presented to Derek Welsh of the Manchester Children's Hospital.
