Gwaii Open a success

  • Jun. 6, 2011 1:00 p.m.

Submitted by James Sawyer –The Gwaii Open was held at Dixon Entrance golf course over the weekend. We had a good turn-out, 18 golfers showed up to compete and have some fun. There were 16 guys and two women. The weather was not that great on Saturday but it could have been worse. Sunday was sunny with a slight breeze (blowing about 30 with gusts to 40). Saturday saw a few good rounds. Ron Russ had the lead followed closely by Charles Sandy Thompson with all the rest chasing. Sunday came around and Ron kept the lead and won the low gross. Way to go, Ronnie! Brad Setso made a charge and ended up winning the low-net, thanks for letting him come out, Jaadaa. The ladies winner was Carrie Samuels, way to go Carrie! Thanks to all the other competitors for coming out. We had an awesome supper Saturday night a nice big roast with a variety of salads, howa to all the cooks who sent in salads and treats, they were delicious. Also howa to Alice for working the kitchen. Howa to the organizers, myself, Brad Setso and Heather George.
