The CIPS Manitoba 22nd Annual Golf Tournament was a resounding success based on the positive feedback received from many of the tournament participants.
The tournament was held at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club on June 14th, 2012. The weather cooperated with us this year, although there was a bit of a threat of a thunderstorm at the start of the tournament. Fortunately, we only had a 20 minute delay and clear skies for the rest of the day!
There were 122 registered golfers and 136 attendees at the tournament dinner. We received very positive feedback about the additional tournament activities this year, including:
· Draw for a 30 minute golf lesson with Steve Wood, Bel Acres Course Professional – There were 10 lucky winners: Steven Wirth, Dan Keizer, John Dzioba, Ed Kostusik, Doug Pelland, Donna Wong, Stan Fry, Jim Aberdeen, Marcello Dimarco and Leslie Ormel.
· The Sweet Alibi Band – Lunch time entertainment sponsored by PCGI. We received many positive comments about the band and how they set a relaxed tone for lunch and for the day.
· The Hole-In-One Contest for the 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid – One golfer’s comment pretty much summed up a number of comments about the contest: “A fun way to for all us to dream the dream of getting a hole in one and winning a car to boot!”
We can’t thank our generous sponsors enough for their continued support. Many sponsors enthusiastically had special events and/or “special refreshments“ at their sponsored hole or special event, which made for great entertainment for the golfers.
The Movement Center of Manitoba thanks all who purchased Mulligans to support their organization.
Much thanks to our tournament volunteers that worked many hours to ensure the tournament ran smoothly.
The CIPS Manitoba 2013 Golf Tournament will be held on June 6th, 2013 at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club. More details to follow early in 2013.
