Sidey Sponsor Black Watch Regimental Golf Meeting

Posted: July 8, 2009

The annual Black Watch Regimental Golf Meeting, has been hailed a great success by organizers and participants alike.

The event was traditionally an officer only event played as far back as anyone can remember.

 As a result of its introduction and transition from an officer only event, it has been a bit of a struggle at times getting sufficient numbers to play and it is only because of the support of sponsors like Sidey, that the event is now beginning to grow, according to Major Alexander Stewart.

He commented: “The individuals who take part in this competition are past and present members of the Black Watch, or the new 3rd Battalion of The Royal Regiment of Scotland. This includes those from other corps or regiments who are currently attached to the battalion.

“The trophies which can be won at the competition have been competed for in one form or another for 100 years. Winners are also awarded prizes which they may keep and this is where Sidey come in.”

He continued: “There is absolutely no doubt that the continued support of Sidey Ltd is a tremendous help to the competition and will encourage others to join us in future years as we continue to grow. The very generous sponsorship we receive enables us to present prizes to the winners without the need to increase the entry fee. Bearing in mind this competition is open to all ranks, we want to keep the entry fee as low as we can to encourage the youngest and most junior soldiers to join us without breaking the bank. Sidey plays a huge part in allowing that to happen. There is no doubt in my mind that without the sponsorship, the competition would at best shrink back to what it was – a competition for a select few, rather than what it should be – an occasion for everyone to enjoy”.
