Scramble done now Stableford is next in Alberni

It was a small but enthusiastic group of 44, playing in the Carlson Wagonlit Twin Travel & Cruises Scramble on Sunday.

The weather was good and the course is getting better with each passing day.

It was good seeing Wayne Cheveldave playing again. Welcome back Chevy.

The team of Tyler Ibsen, Jerry White, Paul Saulnier and Joe Baker came out on top with a 6 under Par 64.

In second place was the group of Jim Proteau, Bill Kriwoken and Masami Hirayama, with only three players, they took turns hitting the fourth shot.

Third prize was awarded to Steve White, Gary Korven, Owen Paxton and Brian Douillard.

Closest to the pin were won by Jim Proteau on No. 2, Brian Douillard took home $20 for the Charity closet to the pin on No. 4, Jim Petersen on No.13, Tom Price on No.17, not to shabby for 88 years of age, and for his second shot on No. 6 it was Tyler Ibsen. Steve White won a gift certificate complements of The Westwind Pub for his long drive on No. 5.

Sorry guys for all us losers the two $50 draws for some reason didn’t happen. They will be drawn in the Red, White and Blue competition which takes place in two weeks.

Next week will be open with the $5 optional event happening called the toombstone. Check with club captain Fred Fredrickson to find out what that’s all about. Also don’t forget the ball sweep, money pot and the charity closest to the pin.

Fifty-two players showed up for the first Stableford Tournament of the season held on  May 23.

Some things never change as Bob Price started off the year the same way he ended last year, coming first with 41 points.

This time he had to share the spotlight with Ken Sander, who also compiled 41 points. In second place was Keith Randall compiling  40 points, next was the group of  Steve Acland, Frank Hastings, Bill Christian, Ron Barker and Gary Korven all  with 38 points.

Coming in with 37 points each were Gene Kimoto, Ron Clark and Jim Lawler. The final cash prize went to Dave Mann who came in with 36 points.

Closest to the pin were won by Livio Tedesco on No. 2, Sharon Hillman on No. 4, Jim Lawler on No. 13 and Keith Randall on No. 17.

The winners of $30 cash draws were Gord Cutting, Bill Lekich, Sharon Hillman, Livio Tedesco, Pat McKay,  Phil Anker, Doug Stoutley, Dennis Frykas, Gerry Blender, and Dennis Hillman.

Sleeves of balls went to George Guy, Clint Wilson and Patsy Gauthier.

The next Stableford will be held on Monday June 20.
