Thanks to everyone who came out to NTDIB Neon on Saturday – I had a blast and hope you did too! Winners will be announced shortly and photos are on FB here – feel free to tag yourselves! Thanks again to our lovely sponsors, Premier Distributors. On a related matter:
- It’s going to be hell on the golf course… That's right, start forming teams of 4 for NTDIB Neon: Charity Halloween Golf Tournament! This will be on Saturday, October 22nd, arrival/registration is at 7pm and the game starts around 7.30pm. Bring your own refreshments, a flashlight and 3 to 5 golf clubs. Glow-in-the-dark golf balls will be provided. This is a rain or shine event so you might want to plan your outfit accordingly – remember, it’s Halloween so costumes are mandatory! The cost is $50 per head and $10 proceeds will go to New Beginnings – a great new charity which gives young people access to education and professional development. Tickets are available from www.premierticketsglobal.com from now until Tuesday, October 18th, or until tickets sell out, whichever happens first.. Once purchased, please email me at ntdiBermuda@hotmail.com to confirm your team members. The last two NTDIB Neon events have sold out so snap ‘em up quick! Here’s the spooktacular flyer and here's the link to the Facebook event! **UPDATE: I can now confirm that prizes for the tournament will be courtesy of our lovely sponsors, Amstel Light!
