Snooker Section – Courier article
Please see the attached article published in the Courier regarding the winning of the fundraising shield for the 2015 raft race.
Update from Mark Allen
We were the last raft to actually start but came 4th out of 11 rafts and would’ve been higher still had the raft been able to maintain a straight line and had we not lost a lot of time at the weir (where we got overtaken by 3 rafts all of which we managed to get past again).
Report from Mark Allen
The raft was made from 728 bottles lashed together with over ¼-mile of “Tickitape” (duct-tape) and it won an award for the “Most Innovative Raft” which will be kept at the Club.
The lion on the front is “Olly The Brave”, the official stuffed toy produced by “Molly Olly’s Wishes” (one of the two charities we’re supporting)
and they gave it to us to do with whatever we wanted. – there was only ever one option really!
