Alamos
Fri, 1st Sep 2006
On 6th and 7th of November, some local preparatory competitions are being held for the grand final on the 8th to decide the winners of the '2006 Douglas Bader Cup'. This tournament is being held under the auspices of the 'Douglas Bader Foundation' for the 20th successive year. Regional qualifying events were held throughout the UK, and the winning mixed greensome pairs in each of twelve UK regional finals during the summer earned places in the Algarve Grand Final on the Alamos course. Lady Bader OBE, widow of the famous and legendary ace pilot, attended this event last year and it is hoped she will be able to grace the event with her presence once more.
