Fifty golfers from as far away as Petawawa and Brockville enjoyed great weather, friendship and food. Entertainment was provided by one of the young soldiers whose wizardry with card tricks was astounding.

The organizers of the event extended their appreciation to all those who participated as well as the artists, businesses and individuals who donated to the event. This tournament is a major fund raiser for the Tweed and Area Arts Council.
