Great night

Glacier Greens Friday Night Mixed Golf on  Sept. 13 had four teams out for a great night of golf.

First place team at -5 was Mario Guitard, Lee Johnson, Caroline Van Kirr and Trudy Lamothe. Nice run of birdies. Second place team was Norm Fellbaum, Bob Mowat, Sue Guitard and Gillian Iddiols with -3.  Both teams also shared the snips.

Closest to the pin on # 4 was Paula Mowat for the ladies and Bob Mowat for the men. We thank our sponsors Plates Eatery & Catering, Locals Restaurant, and Jo Klassen Restaurant.

There will not be any golf for us on Sept. 20 because Glacier Greens has a large tournament on Friday afternoon and cannot accommodate us. Sept. 27 will be our final night with golf registration at 4:30 p.m. for 5 tee off, followed by our banquet.
