On 22 June 06, the MCpl’s of the Regiment hosted the 9th Annual Green Point Lounge Golf Tournament held at the Lancaster Park Golf Course. This years proceeds were once again going to the Children’s Wish Foundation. The tournament managed to raise over $1000 for their organization. We were also privileged to have the “Kidsport” organization as well to help raise funds for their charity. They help raise money for underprivileged kids to buy sports equipment in the local community. They also managed to raise close to $1000 for their organization.

This year we managed to have 110 golfers (mostly from the Regiment) take place in this event. The tee off time was at 0800 with a shotgun start with only one minor burst of foul weather! All had a good time and for the most part behaved themselves!

The winner of this year “best game” trophy went to the CO’s team (Maj Scott Long, Maj Dave Broomfield, Capt Scott Shrubb and MWO Jim Dorrance) with a 7 under par score. Believe it or not, the game was not rigged... supposedly Capt Shrubb can actually golf!

We would like to thank all of the major Hole-In-One sponsors, Erickson Nissan, Nothstar Hyundai, Air Canada and RV City in Morinville. Thanks go out to all of the player’s prize sponsors as well, and a thank you to all who made the tournament a success even if the Subbies did drive the CO’s team crazy with their bugle calls!
