#MoreThanGolf conference is a sell out

first_img England Golf’s first innovation conference, #MoreThanGolf, is a sell out among golf industry representatives who aim to plan for a bright future.  The conference, at Villa Park next Tuesday, will showcase new ideas and innovative ways to develop the game. There will be a special focus on how golf clubs can grow by becoming hubs for their communities. It has attracted delegates from across the spectrum, including golf club representatives, PGA professionals, industry governing bodies and commercial golf organisations ranging from businesses involved in golf marketing to multi-course operators. Iain Lancaster, England Golf’s Club Engagement Manager, said: “This is the first time we’ve organised anything like this and the response has been fantastic.  “It’s clear that there’s a huge appetite for new ideas and ways to create stronger businesses by reaching out to new markets.” A range of speakers will inspire clubs to try fresh approaches and to learn more about the contribution golf can make to public health and social good. Topics will also include new and shorter formats of the game and the European Tour’s Fredrik Lindgren will talk about the impact of Super Sixes while Pam Painter of British Speedgolf will provide a case study. The keynote speakers are Svend Elkjaer, who works with England Golf on the #MoreThanGolf innovation project, and Maria Nolan, general manager of Hollingbury Park and Waterhall Golf Clubs in Sussex. Svend is the director of Sports Marketing Network, a consultancy and information provider which works to develop vibrant, visible and viable community sport. He will highlight the benefits of golf clubs working for and with communities and will explain the simple steps they can take to broaden their scope and enjoy the benefits. Maria will share tips and advice on the initiatives which helped Hollingbury Park Golf Course to win the category for Strongest Community Engagement at the recent 2017 England Golf Awards. Among the other speakers are Nick Pink, the England Golf Chief Executive, and representatives of UK Active and Oxygen Trampoline Parks. A range of case studies will also be presented. 7 Jun 2017 #MoreThanGolf conference is a sell out last_img read more

FEMA Oks $5.75M to Repair Lighthouse, Middletown Bridge

first_img[singlepic id=1012 w= h= float=none]The federal government has approved $5.75 million in funding to repair serious Superstorm Sandy damage to the Bray Avenue Bridge in Middletown and the Romer Shoal Lighthouse off Sandy Hook, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-6) announced Monday.The Bray Avenue Bridge, which was originally denied significant funding, will be replaced, and repairs will be made to Romer Shoal Lighthouse, Pallone said.“The closure of Bray Avenue Bridge for over two years now has greatly inconvenienced Middletown residents and commuters,” said Congressman Pallone in a written statement. “I am glad that FEMA has finally recognized the need to make these investments so that our community can continue to rebuild and get back to normal.”An initial $2 million in federal funding will go to Monmouth County Public Works to replace the Bray Avenue Bridge in Middletown, NJ.  The Bray Avenue Bridge has been closed since Superstorm Sandy hit and post-Sandy investigations revealed that, due to damage from the storm, the bridge was no longer safe for traffic.  Monmouth County applied to FEMA for funding assistance to repair the bridge, but were denied any significant funding.Congressman Pallone wrote to to FEMA Regional Administrator Jerome Hatfield in April of last year urging the agency to revisit the funding request so that the bridge could be re-opened, his office said.The second allocation provides $3.7 million in federal funding to make repairs to the Romer Shoal Lighthouse, which got hit hard during Sandy.The lighthouse sits three nautical miles north of Sandy Hook, New Jersey and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.last_img read more

Baker wins again, but needs extra time to defeat Bombers 3-1 in Kootenay High School AAA Boy’s Soccer Final at Lakeside

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe L.V. Rogers Bombers had dreams of returning to the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Soccer Championships.The squad had been on a roll of late. The Bombers were playing the Kootenay High School AAA Boy’s Final at home at the friendly Lakeside Pitch.And LVR had the luxury of a raft of student body support on the sidelines.However, for the second consecutive year it was the Mount Baker Wild leaving the pitch as Kootenay Zone champs.The Wild scored twice in extra time to stun the LVR Bombers 3-1 on a cold, windy Thursday afternoon at the Lakeside Field.Mount Baker now represents the Kootenays at the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Soccer tournament November 24-26 in Burnaby.Dale Golding ripped the heart out of the Bombers with a goal late in the first overtime period before Ryan Bridgeo added insult to the loss by scoring with time running out in the game.“We practiced in two inches of snow (earlier this week) so the boys were ready for the cold and Nelson, which is a very good team,” said Baker coach Jesse Jarvis after the game.“We don’t get a chance to play very good teams,” Jarvis added, “and Nelson is a very good team. So we’re happy to get this win.”Bolstered by the fans support on the sidelines to start the game — LVR administration allowed student body the option of skipping last block to attend the game — the youthful Bombers got off to a great start when Ryan Lewis beat Wild keeper Manuel Mestre for the game’s first marker.But instead of building on the marker, it was the Wild taking over the play. And the East Kootenay squad was able to tie up the game on a miscue by Bomber keeper Andrew Woodward.Woodward flubbed a clearing attempt allowing Wild midfielder Javier Labrador to score into the empty net before half time.In the second half the Wild defence limited LVR’s scoring chances to a few attempts from well outside the penalty area.Meanwhile, Woodward was tested numerous times by the Wild strikers.“First of all (strikers Ryan Lewis and Luis Loeschinik) were not getting the ball,” said Bomber sideline boss Jamie Spendlove when asked about the inconsistency of the strikers to penetrate the Wild defence.“Luis really wasn’t supposed to be up there (on the forward line),” Spendlove added.“He was supposed to be hanging a bit back but we didn’t have any options because our central midfielder, Simon Sheppard, decided just this morning he was not going to play because his ankle was pretty bad (injured) and he couldn’t go.”In the end, it was the Wild’s senior leadership that proved to be the difference against a Bomber team with only one Grade 12 player — Mitch Melanson.“(Cranbrook) is older and more experienced but I though they (LVR) did well,” Spendlove lamented.“Baker was more physical for sure. We got knocked around quite a bit.”However, the Wild two-year romp to the B.C. tournament may be in jeopardy next year.The Bombers have all but Melanson returning to the squad for the 2012 season.“It’s a very bright future for LVR,” said Spendlove. “The entire team is back, except for one player.”ZONE NOTES: Cranbrook finished tenth last year at the provincial tournament that had to be rescheduled for May of 2011 after snow postponed the original November 2010 date. . . .The Bombers had won the Kootenay AAA Zone for 15 consecutive years before Cranbrook ended the streak in 2010 with a 3-2 win in the East Kootenay City. The best finish for LVR during that run came when Mark Dodsworth, Isaac Rosenberg and Avery Bartels powered the Bombers to a bronze medal finish. Keith Willams coached LVR to nine of the zone titles. Before Williams was the combo of Mike Sedlbauer and Hogue Tyler heading the coaching staff.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more
