A personal message from Paul and Luke ...

 


Dear Flying Club Swingers Family,
 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible last 16 years in which you have helped us grow Swingers beyond our wildest dreams. Last week we hit 12,000 members and amongst that number are many of you who have become really good friends.
 

Swingers has been life changing for us. The 16 years have spanned a third of our lives (well for one of us!) and saw us both have children – 2 of whom are now teenagers! We’ve had some amazing experiences and lots of laughs along the way and we have so many memories that we will cherish forever.
 

Thanks to Swingers, we have travelled extensively and spent some amazing times in the US, Barbados, South Africa and visited many incredible golf courses and destinations all over the UK. We have organised some of the best events we have ever been involved with and are incredibly proud of everything that we have achieved.
 

We would like to thank Virgin Atlantic and all its staff and crew for giving us the support to build and run this incredible programme. In particular,  we would like to say a huge thank you to the original team of Becky Struthers, Breda Bubear and Bill Gosbee who took a punt on a letter we sent to Sir Richard and gave these two rookies an amazing opportunity. Thanks also to Hamish Rickman who, when it looked like Swingers might not make it past Season 5, championed us (that play off win at the final might have helped!) and drove the programme forward.

Then of course there’s Michelle Robinson and Jenny Bush-Harris who backed Swingers all the way and took it onto the next level. We spent 11 years working with Michelle and Jenny as Swingers grew from strength to strength and we will never forget their incredible passion and loyalty to us.  And then of course there is Sharon Kelly, who was with us from the very first event back in 2004 and became our travel partner as we travelled the world setting up some of the most spectacular finals you could ask for.

 

Thank you to each and everyone of them, without whom the past 16 years would just not have been possible.
 

Finally, and most importantly of course, is you - the Swingers community. It might sound like a broken record because we have repeated ourselves at every single prize giving. But without you entering scores, attending the days, taking part in all the competitions, getting involved on social media and most importantly making those connections and friendships with each other, Swingers could never have grown from small beginnings to become the best golfing community across the globe. You were competitive, enthusiastic and had fun but most importantly helped to build an incredible ‘Swingers Spirit’ becoming one big Swingers family.
 

16 years is a long time and nothing lasts for ever. So, much as this is a sad moment, we should smile at what we all have achieved together and look forward to the future.

We are busy putting the final finishing touches to our next project
Linksbook and hope it will offer you all some comfort and a welcome distraction to the changing situation which we all have to adapt to. Please join us and spread the word to golfing friends, family and colleagues and pre-register your interest here. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram where we will keep you updated on all our news and golfing chat from around the world.  Plus we will be running regular competitions over the coming weeks where you can win some great prizes.

In these uncertain times we hope The Swingers family and Swingers spirit will live on through
Linksbook and we look forward to seeing you all very soon.   

 

Thanks again for all your support.

Best wishes

 

 


 


Paul Rockett & Luke Parry
