Fore!!!!(or was that five, it couldn’t have been six?) Yes, fellow duffers, hackers, wanna be golfers and real golfers(for that matter too), it is time again to dust off the old sticks of summer, and sign up for the 8th Annual Rotary Golf Tournament.
This year’s golfing extravaganza will be taking place at the prestine FERNIE GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB. One of the beneficiaries for the tournament will once again be the STARS AIR AMBULANCE, who serves the Elk Valley so well, along with the FERNIE MUSEUM, who will be using the funds for restoration of the old Fernie Hydro Building, which is their new site.
For $110.00 a person or $200.00 a couple, teams of four will be welcomed with a pre-game beverage, participate in a Texas Scramble(best ball) Tournament, indulge in Nachos and a jug of beer, participate in a putting contest, receive a team photo, consume a delicious roast beef dinner and have the chance to win PRIZES……..
The SILENT AUCTION is the main entertainment for the evening, with many generous donations from businesses up for bidding. The ever popular WINE FEST RAFFLE (where each dinner guest may donate a bottle of wine and along with $10.00 has the chance to win the entire lot of wine) All in all….a day and evening filled with gaiety, frivolity, chit-chat, merriment and mirth.
In the SPIRIT OF FUN, this year’s teams are encouraged to dress up in character (Red-neck golfers, Trailer Park Boys, Old timers, WANNA BE HOT TUB ACTORS, Village People or whatever your imagination can conjure up) with prizes being awarded for the best team entry.
