Tyre Golf Day
The (Alternative) TWG was set up about 10 years ago by Martin Stiles of Victoria Tyres and the members used to meet once a year down in Marlow to discuss the state of the trade and to have a good Christmas ‘blow out’.
The last meeting was about three years ago due to Martin leaving the trade, since when the group has been reformed by the committee of Andy Baron (Iverson Tyres) and Paul Ruddock (Stapletons).
The format is a golf and social event afterwards, twice a year and players are by invitation only.
There are around 25 in the group and 16 met for the first golf day in April at Staverton Park Golf Course. The 16 were:
Andy Baron, Iverson Tyres; Alan Jackson, We Sell Tyres; Gary Oliver, Tyreco; Dave Jenkins and Nathan Jenkins, B.I.T.S.; Ian Daniels, Cooper-Avon; Chris Wilson, Southern Tyres; Peter Griss, Continental; Eddie Fogarty, Richmond Tyres; Peter Nicholls,
Michael Jackson; Universal Tyres and Spares; John Oram, Micheldever Tyres; Paul Ruddock, Stapleton’s Tyres; Steve Eldridge, Elite Autos; Ian Grant, Just Tyres; Errol Hassan, Loughton Tyres and non-golfer Andy Zelos, We Sell Tyres.
The format was a team game only and the winners were: Steve Eldridge, Ian Grant, Paul Ruddock and Errol Hassan.
It was a great success and all 16 players hope to meet again at the end of September. If anyone wishes to join the group in September please contact either Andy Baron or Paul Ruddock.
