Golf tourney for our elders filling up fast
Times is running out for registration for the NmTC Elders of the Salish Sea golf tournament at Tsawwassen Springs on Sunday, July 17.
Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council is holding the first of what is hoped to be an annual tournament to raise funds for elders in its eleven communities around the Salish Sea. That money will be used for travel to events such as the annual Elders Gathering and other more local activities. The 40th annual gathering will be held in Williams Lake this year from July 12-14.
NmTC has lined up an impressive list of prizes for golfers. Top prizes include a hybrid car or pickup truck for those who score a hole-in-one on the 17th hole. There is also $10,000 on offer for a hole-in-one on the fourth hole and $5,000 for a hole-in-one on the second.
Tournament organizer Gail Sczerkowsky said the day-long event would have something for everyone, all the while raising funds for our elders. “Put some spring into your swing and join us for a round of golf and an evening to dine and dance with great entertainment and prizes.”
The par-70 course has been recently redesigned with ten new holes on its south side. The old back-eight holes feature a serpentine watercourse through a wildlife habitat with golfers often sighting a Great Blue heron. That bird is in the logo of NmTC.
