Hello all,

A couple of months ago I was very humbled to be included in the creation of a memorial hat for our mate Live4Golf. Maxxon created it without expectation or request for compensation. What a community we have.

For those willing to indulge, I propose ISG members to sign and send it on, for every signature Ive arranged for a donation to beyondblue. If they help one person, maybe one of us, it's all worth it right?

I'll "seed" the concept with some cash. Anyone who can't pay for their own postage, take from that it's fine, of course if you can pay for your postage it's very much appreciated. If cash runs out send me a message I'll top it up. If you want to donate do that yourself directly and get a tax deduction

The endgame is the Nationals, I'd like to collect it at the NSW GC. From whoever is meeting me there.

First time I met Paul we played at Royal Sydney. I suspect this next course will be just as memorable.

The hat pin on there is the one PJ gave to me. I want to share with you who he was to me. You all have your own story I'm confident of that.

Multiple signatures at every destination or at an ISG event are the way to go.

My only request, keep your signature compact and put your ISG username with it. Hopefully that's okay.

I'll be sending this to its first destination on Friday. I just am hoping for a couple of PM's from those wanting to be involved with some addresses. I'll include a little "where to next sheet" as I send it on its way so it can move fast.

All the best. Ben
