GOLF: Alberni men prepare for annual tourney


Special to the News

It was a great day on the links this past Sunday at Alberni Golf Club. Many thanks to Rainbow Lanes for there sponsorship of the men’s club event.

The weather was sunny and warm, the golfing was good for some, not so good for others.

Then with 78 were Glen Trask and Fred Fredrikson. Sixth low gross was Sam Parhar shooting 80, and the final gross prize was won by Cal Davis, carding an 82.
