I was just wondering (cos I cant remember) is there a perpetual trophy for the lady furthest in the competition?
If not can I please suggest that we organise a "Gina Sheratt" trophy to honour the great lady.
We can ask for donations at the event to pay for this but in the meantime I will be very willing to stand the cost of this trophy and cover any shortfall from donations, obviously any extra monies raised could be used in any way that Charlie sees fit.
Should such a trophy currently exist can anyone think of an extra trophy that we could implement, I really feel that we should honour Gina in some way at the event she loved.
From memory, Fazza inaugurated a "Best Lady of Weekend" prize a few years ago (in memory of Peggy), and Jean Brackenridge won it. It was a substantial cash prize, and Jean declined to accept the cash. I'm not sure if it was intended to be perpetual though.
I agree that this, however, is something we could do now for Gina.
A very kind offer and certainly a good suggestion.
Some discussions have already taken place with regards to arranging a trophy in honour of Gina, possibly with a view to either a trophy for the furthest lady in the Sussex Open and / or a new competition within Sussex, either for the Ladies or Younger players which Gina was always keen to support. 8-)
If I could ask that further suggestions could either be left at this stage (for a couple of weeks please) or PM'd to either myself or Tony Jenner it would be appreciated...... as any decisions made will be left to Charlie, Wendy and the rest of the family as to what they feel will most appropriate.
Many thanks, in anticipation.

Got a meeting tomorrow night re wc will bring up subject and see what happens x we could do a collection at this years wc and put some of the money up as a prize for best lady and use the rest to buy a perpetual trophy engraved with ginas name for future comps? Let me know what u think x would be happy to run the collection x been told my money making tactics are good???? X
We'd like to contribute :) - come see me for a trophy, not that there looks like there is a shortage of people willing to chip in but I'll get a better price and I'll engrave it for free too. Also if it is decided it's for the World Champs then I can bring it over as I'm coming anyway. :)
Politicians and nappies have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.
We have now purchased a trophy and will be running a collection on the wc weekend as there are a lot of people who would like to donate x any monies left over will be given to the winner along with the trophy as a one off x future years will be trophy only x x x c u all very soon............ X unfortunately not at the bar as I am now teetotal x x
