THE WOLFPACK GOT together for a group photo before heading to the tee box.

Rumours of Wolfpack's demise have been grossly exaggerated

Special to the Record

Twenty-five members of the rejuvenated Wolfpack took to the fog-shrouded Crown Isle golf course on Oct. 18 to play in the 13th Lone Wolf Open.

Sean “The Commish” Sweeny ventured up from Victoria, Duncan “The Weasel” Gray flew in from Mexico, and Dean “The Skunk” Wanless hurried back from holidaying in Italy to take part in the fun. Mike “Chainsaw” Hamilton, currently on the injured reserve list because of recent hip surgery, fortified the ‘Pack during the event from his well-stocked refreshment trolley.

Though playing good golf might be the norm in other tournaments, like television’s “Survivor” the object in the Lone Wolf Open is, through strategy and guile, to amass the greatest number of Wolf Points. By tournament’s end Dave “The Uncle” Wheeldon –  emulating his nephew Riley – recorded an amazing 68 but didn’t collect enough Wolf Points to win the coveted Green Jacket.

For the third time in the long history of the Open, Mike “The Glue that Holds the Pack Together” Johnston stepped forward at the post-tournament banquet held at “Cunny’s” traditional log cabin to don the coveted Green Jacket. “Cunny” Cunliff,  Ken “Piglet” Grant, Marty “Shampoo” Barbaro, and Dan “Kup Kup” Kupchenko, as well as Johnston took top honours in each of the five playing groups.

Ian “Bubbles” Kennedy reluctantly accepted the “Sack O” award, emblematic of golfing ineptitude and lack of ability, from long-time prize awarder “ Mole” Meyers.

In a special award, Neil “Badger” Havers received the not-so-coveted “Rude Swine of the Year” award. Following his acceptance speech he received a warm round of applause from the ‘Pack for organizing such a fine day of golfing fun and camaraderie.

This year’s hugely successful Lone Wolf Open strongly suggests that rumours of the demise of the Wolfpack have been grossly exaggerated!
