Thank you Vic Mclelland for the expertise and time to tabulate all the scores and make it official.
A few other events took place on the side over the weekend and those results are also in:
Thanks to De Boer's Golf for supplying a brand new golf bag at the Longest Putting Contest. It was down to the wire but in the end it was Brad Callihou taking home the prize. All proceeds from this contest was given to AASRA on behalf of De Boer's Golf.
Much support was given to ASSRA in the form of two 50/50 draws over the weekend. One being held on Saturday and another on Sunday. Saturdays winner was Doug Campbell taking home $90 and Sundays winner was Barb Griffin taking home $85. Thanks to all for the support here.
This years event saw a Silent Auction of 6 items donated from various business's and private donors. Once again all proceeds went to support AASRA. Opening the auction to the public as well as all tournament players and AASRA members saw a total being raised of just shy of $1000. Great job everyone!
Finally, it was super exciting for some players and perhaps not so much for others that participated in Beat the Pro par 3 hole. Our calculations indicated that more people doubled their money than those who lost their bet. Regardless, fun was had by everyone who participated. Special thanks to Ken Ingoldsby and Joey Busetto for being great sports and having fun with everyone! Proceeds for this event went to support AASRA.
Pictures taken and supplied by Katrina Ashley will be posted on the AASRA website shortly. Please visit often and look for your favorite ones or comical ones of you and your friends in action.
At this time I would like to send out a special Congratulations to Team Alberta representing in the Canadian Nationals in Okotoks later this summer on August 13-16. Team Alberta will consist of the following players:
Alternate: Vic McLelland
Please keep in mind that any amputee or disabled golf players are welcome to play this tournament in an assortment of categories by paying a member or non member price. Pass the word around to those who you think may qualify.
Contact: Vic McLelland at CP140@outlook.com for all the details. GO TEAM ALBERTA!!
In closing, I would like to thank everyone who made this event a huge success from outside volunteers, player volunteers to all the businesses and private donors who supported AASRA in such a positive way. This tournament would not be possible without you the players who signed up to collectively bring awareness to the amputee community.
Let's make it our Mission in 2019/2020 as AASRA members and all supporters of this organization to pass on the word of this event and all events hosted by AASRA. Awareness and word of mouth will help to keep all events like this alive and successful now and into the future for many more amputees and followers.
Take care everyone and I look forward to seeing everyone once again very soon.
