Cariboo South golf tournament

The ex-pats and snowbirds were at it once again – taking in the sun on the links, while Quesnel froze.

The ex-pats and snowbirds were at it once again – taking in the sun on the links while their hometown thought the greenest thoughts they could in the hopes of speeding spring on its way.

Seeking to take a break from our climate, but not the wonderful people who reside here, the summer-seekers half, once again, the Quesnel Connections Golf Tournament, March 11-12 in in beautiful, warm Palm Springs, California.

The tournament brought together former and current Cariboo residents and a few of their close friends for a fun round of golf held at Sun City Palm Desert and a net tournament held at Rancho Las Palmas, Rancho Mirage.

A get together BBQ was held after the fun round and a formal wind up dinner and prize presentation was held after the tournament round.

There were 46 golfers who took part in the fun round and 48 for the tournament round, while 70 people showed up at the wind up dinner to take in the Cariboo company.

In the first tournament, Carrie Pettyjohn took the Ladies B Flight while Shirley Ritchie took the A Flight.

Brad Chudiak took the men’s A Flight, while Martin Ritchie took the B and Dan Drezet took the C.

In the second, John McRae took the men’s A flight, while Lorne Martindale took the B. Steve Peterson, a non-Criboo resident, took the C Flight.

For the ladies, Joanne Keis won the A flight Adina Debelser, a non-Cariboo guest, took the B Flight.
