Loggers golf tourney registration open

Spots available in 140-golfer field

Registration has opened for the 2001 North Island Loggers Golf Tournament and organizers expect to fill the 140 available slots.

The tourney is scheduled for June 25-26 at Seven Hill Golf & Country Club, with the $65 registration covering greens fees, a steak dinner and prizes, co-organizer Bill Gray said last week.

The tournament is in stroke-play format, with low-gross and low-net scoring. Each golfer will play 18 holes, with separate rounds scheduled for 7:30 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday and at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

This is the second straight year for the long-running tournament after it took a brief hiatus from 2007-09. Suppliers, contractors and other North Island businesses have stepped up with prize donations which should see each golfer go home with a prize. All other proceeds are donated to a local charity.

Registration is first-come, first-served until the 140-golfer limit is reached. Fees are payable at time of registration, and the tournament is open to men and women.

To register, or to donate prizes, contact Bill Gray at 250-949-7623, Lito Pineda at 250-956-5234, Mickey Walker at 250-949-7203 or Roy Elderkin at 250-949-9083.
