A very successful MRS Golf Day

By Tony Dent

Once again Sample Answers organised this year’s MRS golf day in support of the Market Research Benevolent Fund and, once again, the evening raffle produced a remarkable £400 contribution to the fund. Thanks to all those providing the prizes and congratulations to all the players who so cheerfully emptied their pockets for the cause!

The day began at 7.30 am with bacon sandwiches at Chobham Golf Club and the following 12 hours included the individual Stapleford competition, lunch of ham and eggs and then the Greensomes pairs competition – 36 holes of golf!   All of which led to the evening entertainment of prize giving, beer and sandwiches, culminating in the successful prize draw raffle.

We are particularly grateful to our sponsors
