The BWIC Scramble on September 11th was a resounding success as the event raised over $22,000 for their Scholarship/Bursary Fund! Through the overwhelmingly positive response from many island businesses the monies raised moves them one step closer to their goal: “All deserving children, regardless of their financial constraints, will have the opportunity to experience Student Life at the British West Indies Collegiate.”


Hon. Jamell Robinson, a past Collegiate Graduate, was on hand to speak and conduct the prizegiving. The winning team of Adrian Corr, Justin Simons, Mark Harvey, and Steve Ross finished a shot better than the team of Andrew Burke, Richard Parker, Richard Williams, and Robin Tidrick while third place was claimed by Carl Simmons, Perry Delancy, Anthony Walkin, and Ollie Stubbs just a fraction back. Although the scramble is considered competitive the emphasis on fun and fundraising is always foremost. Everyone had a great time! Tournament organizer Collette Coty was delighted with the event, the full field of 80 golfers, and the amazing positive business community support. Thank you to all involved. Collette looks forward to next year’s event with one of her favourite quotes: “Education is the key to unlock the golden door to freedom.” (George Washington Carver)
