With two successful industry golf events under their belts it was difficult to see how RegaLead could possibly top it for 2015, but somehow they did it again with this year’s Ryder Cup Challenge twist.
The format was simple, a team from RegaLead played a team of industry challengers over 45 holes of golf, with 24 points up for grabs. But while the invitation tagline joked ‘they don’t play golf, they destroy it,’ this time it was the competition which was figuratively destroyed as Team RegaLead emerged victorious with an eight point lead, thanks in part to a little help from their friends.
RegaLead Team Captain Rob Bloomfield explains: “We had a fantastic day once again and it was great for RegaLead to win the tournament. I must give a big congratulations to my team members Darren Baker, Guy Hubble, Paul Edwards, Nick and Lynsey Whyte, Paul Buckley, and honorary Team RegaLead members Inagas’ Chris Kemp, CENSolutions’ Wayne Rogerson, Edgetech’s Andy Jones, Folienwerk’s John Winnick, Nationwide Windows’ Kevin Caveney and Cartek’s Mark Wells – no, it’s not cheating!
“Massive thanks to everyone who donated prizes and of course to Challenger Captain, Glass News’ Chris Champion and his team: Kevin and Trevor Greenfield from KLG, Promac’s Joe Hague, Mike Roe and Jason Higgins from DoorCo, Kevin Caveney from Nationwide Windows, Lee Clarke from MyTradeTV, Peter Dyer from Dempsey Dyer and Synseal’s Gareth Edwards and Mark Cerrone. Well done for turning up to play against our team of bandits and being gracious in defeat!”
Challenger team captain and Editor of Glass News Chris Champion adds: “As the Challenging Captain, if this was politics, I would be falling on my sword like Miliband, Clegg and Farage. Fortunately, it’s a one-off event and the need doesn’t arise! The RegaLead Ryder Cup Challenge was a great event organised by a company that knows how to have fun…and ensure they win. As a Ryder Cup format Sam Ryder would turn in his grave but, if it was intended to ensure a ‘home’ win, this was a masterclass in manipulation by Guy Hubble! Many congratulations to him and his colleagues and especially to Rob Bloomfield, the RegaLead Captain.
“In all seriousness, it was a great couple of days of comradeship, hospitality and competition at Carden Park in Cheshire, the perfect venue. It was only marred by the weather breaking on the Friday afternoon such that a canoeing festival on the flooded fairways may have been more appropriate! It was great fun and enjoyed by all and all thanks must go to RegaLead for staging yet another memorable occasion.”
Participant and Director at Dempsey Dyer, Peter Dyer comments: “I’d like to say thanks to RegaLead for the invitation to this year’s golf event. They managed to engineer everything to go their way – except perhaps the weather. It was great fun for everyone involved although I’m not entirely sure about being awarded the bucket and spade for time spent in the bunker!”
