Do take a look at the LTC website for photos of the LTC Junior Open!
And a special thanks to all the mothers and fathers who came disguised as managers, personal assistants, physiotherapists, counsellors, drivers – and offered their support and encouragement.
We look forward to seeing even more LTC Juniors involved next year! If you could help us find a sponsor for our Junior Open in 2014 that would be great!
Colm Holmes, LTC President & Secretary
