11 Jan 2017 Girls Golf Rocks is getting bigger and better Girls Golf Rocks – the recruitment campaign which got over 600 girls swinging last year – is going to get bigger and better in 2017. The number of counties taking part will grow from nine to 15 – all aiming to get more girls playing golf, by offering coaching with PGA professionals and using young ambassadors from county squads to show that it’s a fun and sociable game. The new counties are: Bedfordshire, Cumbria, Kent, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Wiltshire and Yorkshire. They’ll join Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Gloucestershire, Norfolk and Nottinghamshire. Taster sessions will be held by PGA professionals in March and April, when ambassadors will be on hand to encourage the new girls. They will all then be offered five weeks of group coaching, leading to a fun day with the ambassadors featuring multi-skill challenges and the chance to play on a golf course. During 2016, the nine counties involved attracted over 600 girls to taster sessions. More than 500 went on to take coaching courses and over 230 have already taken out some type of club membership. This coincides with a growing number of clubs and counties reporting an increasing girls’ membership. The project, run jointly by England Golf and the Golf Foundation, started in 2015 with a trial in Essex. Ambassadors and new players from the county are now featured in a Girls Golf Rocks video, which captures all that’s special about the programme. Bella Jay, 14, sums it up when she says: “Golf has done so much for me, I love it. You should come and join us and see how much fun it is.” Click here to view the video. Meanwhile, Ringway Golf Club in Cheshire has the distinction of attracting more girls than any other club in the country. Thanks to a link with local Loreto Grammar School 38 girls attended their taster session, which took place in a torrential downpour. Despite the weather the youngsters enjoyed it so much that they encouraged even more friends to come along and 49 took the coaching course. Already, eight have joined the club’s junior section – more than doubling the number of girl players – while one has achieved a handicap and three are well on the way to getting theirs. Head professional James Salt said: “The girls have all been fantastic and really got into it, they’ve been very eager and it’s been very enjoyable.” Elsewhere, nine-year-old Isabella Bleaken, from Westonbirt Golf Club in Gloucestershire, became one of the youngest ambassadors when she turned out to help, alongside other players from the county girls’ squad. Isabella, who plays off 25, showed the new players how she can hit the ball, then helped and reassured them as they got into the swing. She’s also been interviewed on BBC Radio Gloucestershire about the experience and her father, Mark, reports that her own confidence has rocketed. Isabella is also an ambassador for the England Golf Trust which helps young people in financial need to play the game. Lauren Spray, the England Golf Women and Girls’ Participation Manager, commented: “Girls Golf Rocks has been an amazing success and we’re looking forward to working with more counties and clubs and seeing many more girls come into the game. “We’ve got to say a special thank you to Isabella and all our 110 ambassadors who have been just brilliant at encouraging new girls to play. We couldn’t have done it without them!” As part of the jointly funded programme, girls taking part in coaching will be given a US Kids Golf 7-iron to help them get started. US Kids Golf is the official equipment supplier to the Golf Foundation for the Girls Golf Rocks projects and have additionally donated clubs for use at the taster sessions. Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, Brendon Pyle, said: “The Golf Foundation is delighted to be working with England Golf on this key initiative to introduce more young girls to golf in England. “The expansion of the Girls Golf Rocks into 15 counties will ensure that more girls enjoy the opportunity to ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in golf. The key ingredient has been the willingness of the county squad girls to embrace the concept and inspire new young girls into the sport by helping as leaders and ambassadors.” Caption: Selfie time for Cumbria Girls Golf Rocks ambassadors (image © Leaderboard Photography).

“It was a big decision to change course and we put a lot of thought into the new route,” Dimock said, adding the new course is down in kilometers to 154 km.“We are working hard to make sure the 2015 tour is as much fun as our previous ones have been.”“This route change is just for one year and we plan to return to our original route for 2016 but this shorter version is giving us an opportunity to perhaps do a few things that aren’t possible on our longer route,” Dimock adds.“It also presents an opportunity for riders who may be a bit daunted by the longer ride to be able to participate in the MS Bike. It’s a great event for a great cause.”Proceeds from MS Bike fund vital MS research and programs & services that enable those affected by MS. To participate, all you need is a bike and a passion to end MS.Multiple sclerosis (MS), also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata, is an inflammatory disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problemsThis tour is run by the West Kootenay Chapter of the MS Society and the money raised supports the programs and services we offer in the West Kootenay and Boundary areas to people living with MS and their caregivers,” said Dimock.“It also helps us support vital research for new treatments, and ultimately to find a cure.”The top fundraiser in the West Kootenay Glacier Challenge receives a $200 gift certificate for dinner at their favourite restaurant in Nelson compliments The Nelson Daily.For more information on the MS Bike Tour — West Kootenay Glacier Challenge go to http://mssoc.convio.net/site/TR?fr_id=3881&pg=entry or contact Leona Dimock at 1-866-352-3997 or firstname.lastname@example.org The route may have been changed — just for this year — but the goal remains the same for participants in the West Kootenay Glacier Challenge — help fight MS (Multiple sclerosis).Riders and donors alike are already gearing up for the annual race set for August 22-23 in Nelson and area.“Everyone who joins us, whether as a rider, a donor or a volunteer is helping to reach our goal — to end MS,” said Leona Dimock, West Kootenay Glacier Challenge Bike Tour Coordinator.Not only has Dimock been busy with organizing, but the committee has spent most of the spring re-working the course after learning crews would be paving 40 kilometers of highway through on the race course this summer.“Our Route Coordinator started communicating with Selkirk Paving back in April about the plans for resurfacing and they were very willing to work with us and accommodate our cyclists and volunteers through the construction zone, but in the end we decided for the sake of safety, as well as the quality of the experience for our riders, to change the route to avoid that area,” Dimock explained.The new route means the ride, set for Saturday August 22, begins in Nelson, travels to Salmo before returning back to Rotary Lakeside Park for the traditional Save-On-Foods Celebration Dinner.Sunday, riders leave Lakeside Park, head over the Big Orange Bridge on Highway 3A for Proctor and back to Nelson.

IGGY PUGLISI, SPIRIT RULES, WINNER: “The break helped us out a ton . . . He was in (the gate) a really short period of time and he really caught a flyer from there. I couldn’t give that up. There were too many fast horses in there, so when I could scoot my way over to San Onofre, I figured I’d at least have a shot at it.Through the stretch: “I could feel that inside horse (San Onofre) really starting to battle back . . . but my horse ran really good. He’s been lights out, a really hard-knocking horse.”MIKE SMITH, SAN ONOFRE, SECOND: “Just got out-run today. I stumbled a little leaving (the gate), which cost me a clear lead, but if I’d have been running, I don’t think it would have bothered him. The horse hasn’t run in a year. The horse that beat me is a good old horse that’s been running all year and is fit. It’s a whole lot different in the morning, especially when they take it to you early. I was really happy with the way he ran, and I think he’ll really move forward off it.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: The winning owners are Barbara Accardy, Jeanmarc Murphy and Craig Siedler of San Diego. JOCKEY QUOTES PAUL AGUIRRE, SPIRIT RULES, WINNER: “He’s a big horse and whenever he draws outside and he gets near the lead, he’s going to be tough. They may run him down but it’s not going to be because he quits. He’ll give every ounce he has right to the wire.“This Cal-bred program is fantastic. We don’t have a lot of things to hang our hats on these days in horse racing, but the Cal-bred program is really something to be proud of. It’s made this horse have a nice career.”KAREN HEADLEY, SAN ONOFRE, SECOND: “I knew I was going in there a little short. He’s a nice horse, and I knew that he had one more condition.” -30-
