International KG – Europe's global expert in solar solutions, windows, doors and facades – is Germany's biggest and most star-studded invitation golf event.

The tournament was won by leading English professional and Ryder Cup winner, Ian Poulter.


Grover's group included Geoff Ogilvy and Grégory Havret which made for a fantastic atmosphere on the final day of the tournament. Commenting afterwards, Duncan Grover said: 'The combination of groups of amateurs and the world's best golfers gave this tournament a top-class format. It was an unforgettable experience to be able to play with these stars.'

NETWORK VEKA CLARIFICATION


Network VEKA would like to clarify one factual point in the light of DGCOS's reply to its release "Network VEKA ticks all the boxes in DGCOS-sponsored survey" which has been published across the trade press.


In the table mentioned (P18 of the Herman report), under the column "Minimum Time Trading," seven respondents including Network VEKA clearly state a time, as requested.


The response from DGCOS, "5 point credit and history check" may,


says Network VEKA, “relieve the embarrassment of an empty rectangle but does not refer in any way to the question.”


For this reason, Network VEKA states: “We stand by our original claim that Network VEKA is the only one of 24 national bodies surveyed to score every point in this nine-point chart as stated in our original release.”
