“Vintage 50” BCGSA Interior Chapter Fall Wind-Up Tournament

Please plan on being part of a great day of golf, networking and fun at the Penticton Golf and Country Club on September 29, 2017.  This will be the 50th anniversary of the Interior Superintendents wind up tournament. 

We are hoping to make this a day to remember, so put together a team, a partial team or sign up individually to join the festivities.  Not a golfer, but you’ve been a part of the interior golf industry sometime in the past 50 years, “we want you”.  Sign up as a non-golfer and you can still be a part of history. 

If you have any old photos, equipment etc., please let me know so we can have it on display for all to see.  Please pass this cover letter and entry form on to anyone that’s made our industry what it is today, we don’t want to miss anyone.

Because this is our 50th we are calling it the “Vintage 50” wind-up.  Plan on hitting some shots with “vintage” clubs, there will be a “vintage car” hole in one, and EVERYONE is encouraged to wear “vintage” golf attire.  There will prizes for best dressed individuals and teams.  We will be having the traditional “Verne’s Caesar Breakfast” to get the day going.  Before anyone hits a shot there will be a group photo taken to go into the history books.

If you have any questions you can contact any of the committee members:  Jeff Bennett, Patrick Kerr, Ladd LeGeyt, Stan Kaz, Rick Shillitto or myself, Larry Olson.

Sign up today as we can only accommodate 28 teams, you don’t want to miss this one.
