Beautiful weather awaited players of the fourth annual CIM Northern Gateway Branch golf tournament, held at the Highview Golf Course in Powassan on September 18. The 134 CIM members and supporters who hit the links enjoyed a few laughs and cocktails, and the winning team — Peggy Stewart, Brad Stewart, Lorna O’Brien and Rheal Tremblay (pictured left to right) — shot a 10 under par score of 60. In addition to the “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the Pin” prizes that were awarded, a $10,000 “Hole-in-One” prize was up for grabs — unfortunately, the hole just could not be sunk.
Players were later treated to a BBQ steak dinner and a number of door prizes, and a 50/50 draw was held to raise money for local charities. Other proceeds raised support the Northern Gateway Branch bursaries and scholarship program. Many thanks go to the sponsors and attendees — see you all at next year’s tournament on September 17, 2010!
