Congratulations to Mike McAdam on winning his second RBC Wealth Management Dominion Securities Central Alberta Amateur Championship. Big thanks to co-chairs John Young and Matt Brown on another successful tournament. All the participants loved the golf course and enjoyed good food and great service. Our RDGCC member volunteers contribute immensely to the weekend’s activities. Thanks to the ball spotters, scorers, horse race stewards, and all others for their time and positive attitude.
Tomorrow we host the inaugural Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre Battle of Alberta. Terry Loewen and his committee have worked hard setting this one up, and it promises to be a unique and fun couple of days.
Saturday August 11 is the Red Deer Golf and Country Club Ladies Invitational. Over 20 teams have registered so far. Brenda Pattison is Chair and I think she will still take a team or two if you’re interested.
On Monday August 13 we host the annual Past President’s Golf and Dinner, and Friday August 17 the Alberta Judges tournament.
Sunday August 19 the clubhouse closes at 4 pm as we host the Red Deer Minor Hockey Association Gala in advance of their tournament Monday August 20. The Red Deer Minor Hockey Association tournament was initiated by Ken Frame. He and the committee have built it into an important and anticipated part of our annual calendar, and a terrific fundraiser for RDMHA. From what I have heard they are sold out or very near. We look forward to another great tournament.
The Club Championship will be held August 25 and 26. Chung Mah and his committee have done great work and hope to revitalize the tournament and energize our membership. Randi Boulton will entertain Saturday evening following the horse race…and there will be food and drink specials all weekend.
Our next Discounted Guest Fee Day is Monday August 27.
