Dawn: Great job at getting it done in 2020. You did a great job creating a tournament with the restrictions you had to deal with. I think everyone appreciated having something to take their mind off all the stuff we are dealing with day to day to keep our businesses running and our people and families safe. Thanks for creating a new and fun event; see you in 2021.

Thank you Dawn, you run an amazing tournament. Congratulations on making it even better than last year, which I thought would be impossible. Earle McCandless, CRM, Commercial Account Director, Reliance Insurance”
100% first class…from initial communication and registration, follow up, to arrival and breakfast, golf (good pace of play), on course exhibitors, to speeches (nice and short), prizes (not too many…excellent), and dinner (1st class). I wouldn’t change a thing. No need to. The best organized and executed golf event I have played this past year!
Cheers Russ Rimmer, Avalon Dairy
Dawn, the golfers flew thru faster than I have ever seen them. The on course supplies were endless. Ice, water, food, and all the help. Spot on! The best year for organizing the event yet. Flawless….you and your team are super hero’s….. Layne, 40Knots
