13th Annual Monaghan and Furry Friends Scramble Rocked!

The charity golf tournament I played in yesterday was fantastic. The point of the event was to raise money for North Bay and District Humane Society Adoption Centre project and from the looks of the smiling faces around the club house, this event was a huge success. Upon our arrival we registered and quickly headed to the lunch BBQ to scarf down a cheeseburger. With a full belly and water in hand, my group of regulars headed to our starting hole. The weather was fantastic and course (Osprey Links Golf Course) was in great shape. By all accounts, the day was going to be amazing!

Playing In A Charity Scramble Today

Proceeds from this year’s event support the North Bay and District Humane Society Adoption Centre project – now under construction! This will be the third time we play in the shotgun scramble and has become a yearly must play event. Hosted at Osprey Links Golf Course, I expect the event will be well organized and our treatment will be outstanding (as usual). There is no real winner of the event except for all the participants!

All that was left was to tee up and see what happened!

However, with a few modifications to the tournament format, The Grateful Golfers, (Blair, Rick, Fernando, and myself) put in a team to support the local Humane Society. We tee it up tomorrow and I am just working out the strategy now.
