Great Britain Minigolf Team for 2010 EMC's Predazzo, Italy.

Marc Chapman
Alan Norman

Support/Physio - Anna Green

I am also pleased to announce that we are in the final stages of securing an official kit sponsor for all International Teams in 2010 and 2011.
The next stage is to secure additional sponsors to assist with the costs of transportation and accommodation, greatly reducing the costs to individuals selected to represent the BMGA.

Players will be invited to register their interest for selection in 2011, from the 1st September 2010. More details on how to do this will follow in due course....

Latest updates from the Force, Stormin' and Fizzy...

21st August

British team arrived safely in Predazzo following nightmare 6 hour journey from Innsbruck. 5 holes on Eternit sussed before darkness fell. Temperature 30-32 degrees. Alan still has his putter (result!), Marc recovering from the drive and Anna finding a host of cheap ice-cream shops!

22nd August

Eternit course notes completed. British Eternit Championship being played out this evening over 2 rounds. All the other nations helping out with the British effort. Alan coming to terms with Eternit (keeps forgetting not to step on the course!), Marc still recovering from the drive and Anna is perfecting the art of ball cleanliness (oo err matron!).

Latest update:

23rd August (10pm)

Beton notes finished today - the BMGA ball stocks lack a couple of the really heavy bouncy balls so a few holes a going to be tough.

Things have turned more serious since the teams were announced today. Great Britain met Russian player Vickor and found out that he started his minigolf playing career in Brighton in 2001!

Opening ceremony just finished - lovely event with free dinner! Alan experienced his proudest moment ever as flag bearer, Marc still recovering from the Beton and Anna made Alan buy her an ice cream after the opening ceremony (mmmm....cherry cream)

24th August (19.53)

Solid day of training and the first complete rounds on each course in the bag - Marc 28/23 on Eternit and 36/36 on Beton. Alan 43/41 and 55/46 so both improving well!!

Alan thinks his putter grip isn't aligned right, Marc still recovering from the Italian meal sizes and Anna has had input in the coaches decision on windshield placements (doesn't get more exciting that that!).

First day of championships tomorrow (eternit/Beton/eternit) with an 8am start. Balls cleaned, notes sorted and Great Britain ready to give it their best.

Live results from the EC's (action tee's off from 8am on 25/08/10) at http://win.minigolf-predazzo.com/gare/2010-08-25_EC2010//result.htm

Good luck to Marc, Alan and Anna!

Terrific start from the Force (with Stormin' putting in a PB of 40 as well).

Eternit record is 22

Beton record is 28

Think they will both go this week!

VTK!!!!

That is pretty impressive from Nick, surely worthy of a minigolfing hall of fame type end of year award?

So GB are preparing to go into the final day with 2 rounds left. Temperatures in the sun are soaring causing havoc with ball prep. The Force feeling good with his consistency and the reverse grip beginning to reap rewards.

Alan has bought a new putter (long story!), Marc is still recovering from all the back (and bum!?) slaps received. Anna has stocked up with Italian biscuits.

Go for it Great Britain - you are doing us proud!!!!!

Here here... a brilliant overall average across both Beton & Eternit. Nice to see Alan banging in a PB in his last round - a great performance from the team.

I'm back!

Many thanks for the best wishes etc...turned the 'Data roaming' off on my mobile phone so as to not rack up a mighty bill this month!

A superb event which has provided a massive insight into the sport in many ways. I'll see you all next Sunday at the PHCGCO!

Thanks again for the support which was kindly relayed via Sean & Keith,
