Thank you and congratulations to all the sponsors and players in the annual GAPDL Members & Mates charity golf day held last Friday 13th August.  The day was a huge success with money raised going to the Agnes Water/1770 Local Ambulance Committee to provide life-saving equipment & training for our local paramedics & community.  Thank you to AVIS Gladstone who was the major sponsor for the day, Engage & 1770 LARC! took up the hole sponsors, APLNG ConocoPhillips & EFEX donated coolers & bags for all players and Arma Insurance brokers setup a Hole In One competition on the 15th hole!  Our local businesses also stepped up with donations and vouchers to be raffled on the day.  Thank you to DC Blooms, Agnes Water Butchery, Agnes Water Rock Shop, Agnes Water Tavern, Agnes Homewares, By the Beach Boutique, Concrete Jellyfish, 1770 Marina Café, Drift & Wood Restaurant, Creek 2 Reef, Codie’s Place, Missy’s Place, Barb O’Keefe, Caltex, Santos, Stephen Bennett MP, Round Hill Pizza Bar, Perspective Collective, Neil Collins & 1770 Lagoons Central Apartment Group.  The winning team on the day with a net 26 went to the ENGAGE team of Angelo, William & Phil, the AVIS Gladstone team of Richie Hyne, Rick Niven & Tom Corpe came in second with a net 27 3/5 and third place went to the Concrete Builders, Synon Holland, Tim McIntosh & Paul Rodi with a net 28.  Congratulations to Michelle Sheppard for winning the ladies longest drive, and Darryl McAllister the mens longest drive.  AVIS team 1 won the pin shot on hole 12 and Angelo Paolotto won the pin shot on hole 17.  Thank you also to the GAPDL staff, Emma, Susan & Melissa who worked tirelessly to plan and run the event.

Our LAC liaises between the community and the QAS to promote community participation in and an awareness of ambulance services.  All funds raised from activities are retained locally to purchase extra equipment and relevant supplies that the dedicated officers request from time to time.  These items enhance the service to the community by way of best patient care and practices.   The LAC organises first aid courses and CPR updates for the community and have a range of first aid kits available for sale to the local community.  The golf day is always greatly supported by players from our local community and region.
