Woods out for logger tourney

The North Island Loggers Golf Tournament will take place June 20 and 21

The North Island Loggers Golf Tournament, an event that has run for nearly three decades, will have golfers swinging their clubs in the friendly weekend event June 20 and 21.

The tournament, hosted by Seven Hills Golf and Country Club, has three flights taking place Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday.

There are prizes for everyone given out Sunday evening and dinner will be provided. There is generally an allotment of 144 golfers, and all prizes are donated by community businesses.

Apart from being a sporting event, the tournament is notable in that all profits go towards providing scholarships for local students through Port Hardy Secondary School and North Island Secondary School. In previous years the tournament proceeds went towards supporting local people in need and charities, and for the previous three years has been supporting scholarships. In 2014 six students were recipients of these scholarships.

Critical to the success of this event is contributions by sponsors, and any local organizations or businesses interested in doing so may contact Bill Gray at 250-949-7623 or Lito Pineda at 250-956-5234. Donations may be dropped off at the WFP Port McNeill office or can be picked up by committee members (found on the event Facebook page.)
