Jega, Govin win Quattro Trophy
Noel Selvanayagam did himself pretty proud when SENOK his combined sponsored the Quattro Golf classic at the Royal Colombo just recently. Choked to capacity the entries were huge and all participants had a great time under excellent playing conditions. Vivacious Rachel Obeysekera dovetailed all the arrangements superbly.

S. Jegatheeswaran & Vish Govindasamy merged superbly with the protective charm of the omnipotent. Almost error free they hooked and sliced to safety, banged the centre of the fairway, were positive on the greens & studded with miraculous putts.

They cracked 40 points picked handsome trophies and reserved for themselves seats on a flight to Portugal to participate in the QUATTRO World finals. They were extremely popular at the award ceremony and many found their shot by shot commentaries quite interesting and sometimes confusing.

Bandula Weerasinghe & Avanka Herath playing excellent golf settled for the same score but had to step out of slot number one as their back nine was inadequate.

Gymkhana events
Danny Schpers & Deanath Kulathunga found the 6 hidden holes to win a special award and Sunimal Salgado & Joseph Kenny did exceptionally well to pick a winning score on the Par 5 holes.

Lallith Ramanayake & Arshad Ahamed moved into 4 Birdies and were rewarded by Noel Selvanayagam. Navin de Silva was on full throttle to speed to 295 yards and collect a good looking award for the longest drive. The closest to the pin was fun filled. Serwin Arasakularatne & Chutti Mansoor settled 13 ft. far from the pin and jointly won the closest to the pin prize.

Kumar Boralessa Captain & Tita Nathanielsz President distributed some awards & Noel Selvanayagam handled the main award preceding an excellent speech where he thanked the R.C.G.C., the participants and the several supporters for helping him to complete an extremely successful tournament. A lavish party followed with Scotland's pride dominating the miniature late night.

Upali de Silva & Asoka Jayawardena generally played merry hell. H. Weerasekera & Navin Peiris messed around. T. Nirmalingam & Eraj Gunaratne were lost and found and Paul Bishop & Hugh Macconeil got stranded. The Ridgeways Course had a hard time.
