The Tweed & Area Arts Council will host the second annual Jack Vance Golf Classic on Sunday, July 12, 2009 at the Poplars Golf Club, Stoco (in the Municipality of Tweed). It is a four-person best ball event with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Cost is $100 per player which includes the green fee, golf cart, steak dinner and a $50 charitable receipt to T&AAC. For non-players, dinner only is an option at $25 per plate. To< register, call Ev English at 613-477-2634 or see 'coming events'
at www.tweedartscouncil.ca for a registration form.
All profits will support the Marble Church Arts Centre. The historical marble church is currently being renovated as a home for the arts.
The tournament is named in honour of Jack Vance, a supporter of the arts, noted painter and founding member of T&AAC. The retired lieutenant-general is also known for a distinguished, 50-year military career.
'Without Jack's guidance,' says Ev English, tournament organizer,
'the arts council would not exist. Last year, our first tournament was highly
successful and enjoyed by all. We hope to build on that success and urge people to
register early to avoid disappointment.'
