SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Another successful Men’s Club golf season came to a close at Alberni Golf Course on Sunday, Oct. 6 with a four-man scramble. Many thanks to the sponsor for the day, Island Entertainment Inc. (Rainbow Lanes.)

We would also like to thank golf pro Brian Rands and his staff, Ingrid, Julie, Jeremy, Cory and Chase, for all their help in organizing events. Thanks also to the two office employees, Kelly and LeeAnn, who took time each week to count out the club bucks for prizes and for looking after our banking.

Finally, thanks to Ron and the kitchen, restaurant and bar staff for the excellent food and service through the season.

It was a dry day on Sunday as the team of Jeremy Robson, Cory Haggerty, Chase Shiner and James Maxwell (all young whippersnappers) led the way with a score of 62. Next was the team of Ted Stewart, Steve Pointon, Damian Dodd and Dalton Moore carding 64.
