Sean Homer, Chairman of the BMGA wound up proceedings and said “Star City has become a welcome and very popular venue on the BMGA and the move to see the event close out the season has proven to be a fitting finale to a great season. I would like to thank everyone who made the trip to Birmingham and a special thanks to Mark Wood and Martin Greenhead for doing a top job in running the event. And of course on behalf of all the players I would like to thank John Whitehead and all the team at Adventure Island Minigolf in Birmingham for their superb hospitality and support over the years. We look forward to returning again next year and from all of us at the BMGA, we wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
A final press release will be published on the BMGA website towards the end of December with details of the 2016 calendar, membership information for the year ahead, along with a survey for all players keen on participating in the International competitions scheduled for next year.
