13th Annual Golf Tournament Report

Dear Worthy Brothers,
I am pleased to let you know, though belated, that our recently concluded 13th Annual Golfing Tournament was a resounding success. The tournament took place on Saturday, July 12th at the Hornby Glen Golf Course, under clear blue skies and with the sun shining down on all participants (unlike the previous year when we got rained out on several occasions).
The renamed winning plaque CGK Mathew Rodrigues Memorial Trophy was won by Bro. Stephen Goodman (from our council) and his team of Steve Caloran, Mark O’Mara & Paul Walker.  Well done Stephen and Team!
We also welcomed Maureen Rodrigues (spouse of CGK Mathew Rodrigues), daughter Michele, son-in-law Cedric and grandkids  Adelaide & Noah, who joined all of us for supper and the distribution of the prizes and the winning raffle tickets.
On behalf of the executive committee, our grateful thanks to PGK Valens, Chair (second year running) and to his hard working committee of brother knights. They worked hard on obtaining hole sponsorships, raffle prizes, silent auction items and other items to make the event a highly successful one, both in terms of enjoyment coupled with fraternity, amongst the brother knights and closing the event with a bottom line of over $4,000.00.  Well done Team and keep up the good work.
Our grateful thanks to all of our sponsors who contributed both in cash and kind, to the brothers knights from our council for their generous donation of gifts including silent auction items. To all of the participants from our council and the other councils, SABA Assembly & other Assemblies and all other participants, our sincere and grateful thanks. Out thanks also go to the volunteers (knights and others) who assisted prior to and on the day of the tournament.
Our hole & card sponsors were: REMAX Realty (Bro. Reynold Sequeira), Fraternal Advisor-Bro. Alan Pires, Bro. Nicholas D’Souza, Bro. Felipe-Rey & Family, Bro. Steve Goodman Team, John Stephan, Olympia Tile & Stone, Ronald A. Chisholm Ltd., 407 ETR,  Erin Park-Lexus, Base International Traders, Tahir Mehmood-TD Canada Trust, Harvey Rosenfeld Podiatrist,  G.A.
