On Saturday, January 11th brought a rain and wind warning, but that didn't deter 56 of Bowen Island's most hearty golfers from competing in the Bowen Island Golf Club's 9th Annual Snowman Scramble. This 4 person scramble is the longest running event at the BIGC and is held every January.
Skies cleared after a couple holes and spirits were high as the rain held off until just minutes following the completion of play.
Following the round the players gathered in the clubhouse for a delicious meal served up by Glen Cormier of the Bowen Island Pub who has just signed on to operate the Cup Cutter for the 2014 season. Look for more announcements to follow in the coming weeks.
The top 5 teams from the Snowman Scramble:
1st Place: Peter Clarke, Kathy Clarke, Bill Keller Score: 29.3
2nd Place: Steve Baskerville, Mike Lightbody, Glen McGregor, Matt Gildersleeve
3rd Place: Peter Moir, Colleen O'Neil, Jane Kellet, Charles Perrin
4th Place: Mike Dale, Gord Campbell, Carol Correll, Barry Adams
5th Place: Mark Groen, Kim Natress, Tom Roocroft, Chris Bell
The next event at the Bowen Island Golf Club is the Annual Cupid's Cup on Saturday, February 8th.
