THERE WAS AN eagle at the second round of the Glacier Greens Men's Shoot Out on May 24 – but not on anyone's scorecard. This winged wonder was carrying a salmon to its nest above the #2 green but didn't have the strength and crash landed in the bush beside golfers on #9 fairway.

New leaders after second round of Shoot Out

Glacier Greens men surprised when eagle drops in for a visit

After the last putt had dropped on Saturday, May 24 and the scores tallied, the second round of this year’s Glacier Greens Men’s Shoot Out was in the books. There were some leader changes in both the gross and net brackets.

Chris Kalnay and Dave Wacowich are now leading the gross side with a two-round score of 130 followed by last week’s leaders Rob Borland and Steve Peters at 132. Kevin Hunt and Fabian McCarty as well as Chuck Brown and James Dickson are tied for third place at 136. Jeff Edwards and Shane Robinson along with Jim Livingstone and Doug McArthur are next at 138.

The scores on the net side are extremely close with the team of Mike Pollock and Al Waddell holding a narrow lead with a two-week score of 111. Next we find the pre-tournament favourite team of Len Doyle and Gary Wood at 112.  Also at 112 is the team of John Keats and Dick Stuart. John Holley and Rod Verchere hold down fourth place with 112.5. Tied for fifth place are Bob Henn and Glenn Horsepool as well as Greg Conway and Wayne Mabee with 113.

Team KPs went to Chuck Brown and James Dickson on #4 sponsored by Scott Fraser of Royal LePage Realty; Kevin Hunt and Fabian McCarty on #7 sponsored by the Saturday Men’s Club; Steve Blacklock and John Trimmer on #12 sponsored by the RCMP Vets; Chris Kalnay and Dave Wacowich on #15 sponsored by Bill Kelly Golf; and to Ron Carter and Rick Verbeek on #17 sponsored by Slegg Lumber.

Next Saturday, May 31 will be the final day of the Shoot Out and the format will be the dreaded and challenging Alternate Shot. “I’m sure the wildlife at Glacier Greens will hear the term ‘sorry partner’ many times during the day,” said Saturday Men’s Coordinator Len Doyle.
