Clear skies greeted the 112 participants as they teed it up for the final day of this year’s Glacier Greens Shoot Out on May 31.  The format was the challenging Alternate Shot.

After the scores were tallied Dave Wacowich and Chris Kalnay were the tournament winners with a three-day gross total score of 209. Round two leaders Rob Borland and Steve Peters were second at 213 followed by last year’s winners, the father and son team of Mike and Terran Berger, at 216. Chuck Brown and James Dickson as well as Jeff Edwards and Shane Robinson rounded out the top five with 219.

On the net side winning a count-back was Nick Mykitiuk and Rudge Wilson at 182. Second place went to Greg Conway and Wayne Mabee also at 182. Third place winning a count-back was Len Doyle and Gary Wood at 184. Also at 184 was Bob Henn and Glenn Horsepool.

Four teams were tied for fifth with 185. They were John Keats and Dick Stuart, John Holley and Rod Verchere, Ross Dowe and Lyle Torrie and Bud Bryan and John Pringle.

All participants were treated to a fine lunch and a visit to a well-stocked prize table.  KP prizes went to Clint and Jim Perry on #4 (sponsored by Scott Fraser of Royal LePage Reality), Ross Dowe and Lyle Torrie on #7 (Glacier Green’s Saturday Men’s Club), Rob Egan and Blair Peacock on #12 (RCMP Vets), Adrian Haut and Joe Dunham on # 15 (Bill Kelly Golf) and Al Cabilan and Gabe Tremblay on #17 (Slegg Lumber).

“The tournament committee would like to thank all the sponsors and a special thank you to club member Lee Johnson who once again donated a hand-painted, framed painting to the Memorial Bridge fundraising project,” said Saturday Men’s coordinator Len Doyle. “Next year will be the 20th anniversary of this popular tournament,” he noted.
