Masset councillor Brent Buell wants to organize a fun golf tournament this spring for all elected officials on the islands and their spouses.
He told Masset council members Monday night (Jan. 23) that the golf tournament could be great way to for local politicians – from all villages and the Council of the Haida Nation – to get to know each other.
Mr. Buell said he had the idea last week while spending time with the newly-elected council members from Port Clements and Queen Charlotte, at a seminar in the lower mainland organized by the Union of BC Municipalities.
Masset has a fantastic golf course and not many people are using it in February or March, he said.
He’s even got the refreshments covered. “I’ll bring smokies, I’ve still got a couple of hundred left,” he said, from a brief stint last summer as a hot dog vendor.
Masset mayor Barry Pages told Mr. Buell it sounded like a good idea, and he should work on it with village staff.
