Old Boys 2008
When your gross score improves by 17 strokes from one year to the next, it is more likely that you will be the winner of the tournament. And that is exactly what Brian did to take this year's Old Boys tournament. It was actually not that clear from the initial look at the cards, but numbers guy Glen made a slight error in addition which initially pointed to Paul as the winner. Brian, with his net 68, is pictured here accepting the trophy from yours truly, host of this event for the past 5 years. There is some talk about the event being a "criss-cross" Howe Sound event next year, with one round in Squamish and one in Roberts Creek. Negotiations continue. There was a mildly negative aspect to this year's gathering with rain pouring down on the first day and the wimps prevailing over the more hardy golfers, wiping out day one's golf. That was soon forgotten with a gathering back at my place and Judy creating Wii characters for everyone and then Wii target golf competitions taking place. Two good evening meals, two good golf course breakfasts, and a chili lunch after the rainout made for a very nice get together.
