The Frank "Bumper" Farrell Spring Golf Classic

The Newtown Jets Rugby League Football Club is proud to announce that the Foundation Rugby League Club golf day on Wednesday, 15th November 2006 at the Marrickville Golf Club will once again be sponsored by Jack Elsegood, grandson of the famous Newtown Bluebags and the colourful NSW Police Force identity of yesteryear, Frank "Bumper" Farrell.

In recognition of Jack?s generosity, the Newtown RLFC golf day will again be known as the Frank "Bumper" Farrell Spring Golf Classic. It is entirely appropriate that this event should again bear the name of the redoubtable ?Bumper? Farrell, and also that the golf day is being staged right in the heartland of traditional Bluebags and Jets territory. Jack Elsegood himself is well remembered as an extremely capable winger with both the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and the Sydney Roosters Rugby League clubs, and his family has had a long connection with the Newtown club.

These Newtown RLFC golf days form an important part of the club?s fund-raising events. Funds raised from these days go to sponsor Newtown?s senior and junior teams. The Rugby League community?s support on these days helps Newtown finance and promote the oldest club in Rugby League, and to provide talented young footballers the pathway to progress through the Jets? ranks and to reach their full career potential.

Sponsorships of the day's events are available by way of the following: Sponsorship of a Hole and team - $1000 (includes signage on hole); Sponsorship of an individual hole - $600 per hole (includes signage on hole); Sponsorship of a team of four players - $400 per team; Individuals paying to play and then allocated to a team ? $110 per person. Your sponsorship and/or payment of a team or individual entry will entitle you to green fees, pull-along buggy, drinks on course, plus breakfast (available from 7.00am) and lunch. The golfing action will tee off at 8:00am. There will be challenges on selected holes to add to the entertainment and sportsmanship of the day, and there will also be raffles, auctions and prizes for the winning teams.
