The Midweek Money Spinner

As all serious "eventers" will tell you, eventing is not just about weekend shooting! Midweek opportunities are often overlooked and can be just as profitable as any weekend sporting event, award ceremony or other weekend event. Be sure not to miss the "Midweek Money Spinner" and learn how midweek eventing can work for you!

The "Midweek Money Spinner" will be held at the Newbury & Crookham Golfclub in Berkshire on 13th September 2011and presented by qualified Master Photographer, Dave Burlison of Burlison Photography. Some of Dave's clients include Deloitte, Samsung, RBS, Yell, Cadbury-Schweppes, BAE Systems, Allied Irish Bank, Exclusive Hotels and Mars Inc. (the people who make Mars chocolate bars). Dave is also the appointed photographer to world renowned TV golf pundit, Peter Alliss.
