E-mail from  Brian Ritchie
I am presently undertaking some studies on a Golf Management Course with the University of Highlands and Islands (UHI) at Dornoch.  As part of this course we are currently working on an Event Planning module. The assignment for this course entails myself and two other students working together to run an event of our choice.
Our team has decided to run a Junior Event on the New Course at Moray Golf Club, Lossiemouth on Saturday, March 23.
I would be obliged if you would consider running the News Release (below).  I don't know if you are able to assist in getting it in to other local media also.  If so that would be appreciated.
We would look at running a follow up story, with pictures of the winners, post event.
Your assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.

Students from the Golf Management course at the University of Highlands and Islands are set to run a new Junior event at Moray Golf Club on Saturday 23 March 2013.  The inaugural tournament is sponsored by Associated Seafoods, Buckie and has been developed as an opportunity the North and North East District youngsters to have some competitive links play, in preparation for the Scottish Boys Championships to be held at Monifieth a couple of weeks later.

"As part of our Event Planning Module we were required to develop, plan and run an event of our choice" said one of the organisers Steven Kerr.
"Obviously being Golf Management students we were always going to have a golf based event and the opportunity to support the development of some local talent seemed too good to miss.  We are extremely grateful for the support of both Moray Golf Club and Associated Seafoods Ltd, as without their participation this event would not have been possible."

North East District Junior convener, Ronnie Campbell, said, "We are delighted the students have taken upon themselves to create this event.  The Scottish Championships come very early in the season and I am sure the boys will welcome the opportunity to get competitive golf against some of their peers.  Holding it on a links course will be particularly beneficial." 

Mr Campbellā€™s enthusiasm was mirrored by that of North District Junior Convener John Ross, when he commented, "We are always keen to see our boys do well at the Scottish Championships and I am sure this new event will help in their preparations.  Both Districts are continually looking to enhance the development of their youngsters and this will undoubtedly help in that cause."

The students are hopeful that if the event proves to be a success there may be an opportunity for it to be run on an annual basis.
