Hello Tropical Twos
What a great few days we had .......... sunshine, tropical breezes, sunset cruises, a poolside barbecue, exotic restaurants and a golf course lined with swaying coconut trees and lagoons teeming with wildlife, ..... PERFECT.
Boy it was a tense last few holes in the what was a very close final played out between Hank & Annette Den Elzen and Mike & Jacqui Mitchell. Even the croc has his teeth clenched... - It all came down to the very last putt ..... with a very excited Jacqui and Mike winning on honour.
Click play to see how close it was.....
Our other Monday finalists were Richard & Michaela Hazeltine and locals John & Shirley Carney, who finished 3rd and 4th respectively.
The Plate Event was won by Ian Craigie and Rudi Puels.

...goes to David Burns. It was his turn with the yellow ball and he wasn't going to let a bit of water get in his way.

Rudi slept off his big win whilst waiting for the shuttle to arrive.
We had lots of side bets and games going throughout the weekend and managed to raise over $3000 for Peter Mac. This money has gone into the Barnbougle Beanie Fundraising Pool, bringing the 2012 Beanie fundraising to ~ $24,000. Over the past 5 years we have raised over $114,000 for Peter Mac. Well done to everyone who has contributed.
All the money raised goes towards Robin Anderson's Cancer Research team. Please visit Metastasis Research and http://www.everydayhero.com.au/bouglebeanie for more information.
Peter Mac will be sending out receipts to the participants who have made donations. The photo below shows Peter checking out the Barnbougle Beanie microscope in the Lab at Peter Mac.
Once again, thank you for your support of the event. We look forward to catching up with you all again soon.
Heather and Peter Wood
