Great golf, sunshine at Big Valley tournament

Big Valley Bulletin

The annual Big Valley Memorial Golf Tournament took place this past Saturday at the Big Valley golf course. This year’s tournament was held in memory of Mason Annable, Harry Bahan, Stoney McCrindle, Jack Ridley, Cliff Romane, Murray Scott, Dave Shaw, and Harry and Fran Stuber.

Families and friends gather each year for a round of golf and to remember our fraternity members who have passed on. This tournament was blessed with wonderful weather as 46 golfers and other guests gathered to enjoy the day. Organizers cooked some lovely eats and thanks also to Bill for the food he provided as well.

The four-ball, best-ball competition was hotly contested and when the dust settled, Jim Paul Jr.’s team and the Cliff Ross team tied with a round of 29. An ensuing chip-off saw Jim Jr. edging Ila’s chip for the winner. Well done, Jim!

Along with Jim on the winning team were Al Berresford, the late Harry and Fran Stuber’s daughter Colleen, and her daughter Aimee. Who says there isn’t karma in Big Valley?

Most honest golfers were the Marie Glover team consisting of Pat Parkin, Wanda Neufeld, and Wayne and Doreen Waugh.

Several donated prizes were handed out, though the closest ball to the hula-hoop on Hole 8 was the only designated prize. This could be won by either a lady or man and congratulations go out to Andrea Webster, who won a set of clubs for being the closest.

Other hole prizes were won by Marie Glover (closest to line on Hole 1), Nikki Volker (ladies long drive), Craig Turner (closest to power pole on Hole 3), and Cliff Ross, who hammered the men’s long drive.

The family members who organize this event each year certainly do a wonderful job. Their donated prizes are always first-class and the majority of people attending win something. Best of all, of course, is the camaraderie and goodwill displayed.

Thank you so much to the families from all area participants. We look forward to next year.

Big Valley Minor Hockey registration will be held Wednesday from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Big Valley Arena. Please remember to bring your child’s Alberta Health Care card and birth certificate. If you are unable to attend this registration, contact Mandy Lucki to make alternate arrangements.

Coaches and managers are also needed for all three minor hockey teams. If you are interested, plan to attend the registration night, or call Mandy at 403-876-2503.

The first meeting of the season for the Big Valley Municipal Library Board will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 20, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Legion Hall.

Big Valley School will hold its annual Terry Fox Run on Friday, Sept. 23, beginning at 12:15 p.m., for grades 1 to 9. Students will be canvassing until Sept. 22. We thank the community for all of their support.
