REPORT: 2015 Come & Try Days

MGC has welcomed over 600 Guests to the Club this year for our Come and Try Days.  All appeared to enjoy their time at trying to hit a target, with many returning for another date and others immediately seeking to join the Club before they left.

With our website booking service, it has become easier for our Guests to arrange what date they wish to attend and pay as they book.  Not like the early days when Jim Hutchinson & Tina White made many notes, contact calls and lost sleep over who would or would not show up on the day.  Groups are kept to 25 participants but this does vary (mainly over).  Dates are booked out up to 8-10 weeks in advance and it is very rare for a cancellation.

RESULTS: MCG Major Raffel

With bated breathes from all who were present at the Club's great 50th Anniversary Dinner and who had purchased what they thought would be the winning ticket. Club President Darryl Johnston invited Judith Kent (VCTA State Secretary) to draw the winning ticket for the 3 Gold Ingots valued at $4,800.00.

First indication was: The winning ticket had two names on it .. this was perhaps a bit disappointing to those who had purchased what they were hoping would be the winning ticket, but still, the best of "Aussie" luck to those names had been drawn as winners.
