Davistown Putt Putt Weekend – A Wrapup

The 2018 Davistown Putt Putt Weekend started on a high note with the running of the 2nd Charity Dinner. A great night was had by approximately 130 people who enjoyed music and dancing provided by Kristy Coote and her Band and Jamus the Mad Magician who entertained at and around the tables. A great meal was provided by the Davistown RSL and collectively the crowd raised approximately $7,000 to be donated to the Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia – a very worthy cause and a great result. The evening benefited greatly from the generous sponsorship of Ray White Saratoga, AC Fitness and the Dart & Feather Restaurant. We also sincerely thank the many local organisations that generously donated prizes and gifts for the raffles, auctions and balloon lucky dips which enabled us to raise such a great amount.

Saturday got off to a good start with the finalisation of layouts and erection of the stage, marquee and pop-up’s on the reserve and it appeared that Mother Nature was going to be a supporter. Saturday afternoon saw a number of Putt Putt’s enjoy a casual Putt About led by the Sydney Heritage boat – Protex. The attendees were then provided with light snacks and drinks at the Davistown Progress Hall. A very enjoyable afternoon was had and a final inspection of the Reserve had us well prepared for a great day on Sunday.

Alas, when Sunday morning came around we found that a deluge in the early hours had rendered the Illoura Reserve unusable. After some perseverance it was decided that the event would have to be cancelled – a very tough decision after 10 months of planning and preparation. To continue would have caused considerable damage to the Reserve and jeopardised the approval of future events. While there were some breakdowns in communications regarding the cancellation, the general feedback from the general public, boat owners and stallholders has been positive and the Committee trusts that you will all join us again for the 2019 Regatta where we will again try to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this great event.

We also take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our sponsors for their ongoing support both financial and in kind.

After a short break, planning for 2019 will commence.
