Everyone’s favourite season is back. Once again the chapters are swinging away and organizing their annual golf tournaments. Lots of exciting prizes are being offered this year and the golf courses chosen are some of the best in their areas.

Upper Canada Chapter is having its golf tournament on July 17, at Briar Fox. This is always a fun-filled day on the golf course. Join us for great food and prizes, plus a lot of laughs!

The Toronto Chapter has moved to Glen Eagle this year for its tournament on July 23. There will be lots of surprises this year! The CLD group has committed to joining the tournament and helping raise even more money for SickKids. Featured special guest star for après golf is Pinball Clemons of the Toronto Argonauts, who will be on hand at the tournament to show his support for this great charity and event.

Don’t forget about the poker tournament after the Toronto tournament. If you are a non-golfer, we have you covered. Join us at the Peters residence for Texas Hold’em. Proceeds will go to SickKids! Visit locc.ca for tickets.

If neither golf nor poker appeals to you, why not join the baseball tournament with your company? Last year’s tournament was a sell out and we still have a few team entries available. Visit horttrades.com under the Toronto Chapter for the registration form.

Georgian Lakelands Chapter is having its golf tournament on August 20 at the Innisbrook Golf Course in Barrie. Proceeds from this tournament will go to Gilda’s House, an important local charity. The tournament is reasonably priced and promises another fun day on the course, while raising money for a good cause.

Waterloo Chapter is having its third annual tournament on August 26. This tournament is an early sell-out every year, so book now to avoid disappointment.

Ottawa Chapter’s theme is go big or go home. The members have booked the very exclusive Loch March Golf and Country Club for August 27. There are limited exclusive sponsorships available. All the information is online at horttrades.com, under the Ottawa Chapter.

The London Chapter golf tournament is set for Sept. 11 at the Pine Knot Golf Course in Dorchester. Chapter organizers are guaranteeing a fun time at the event. Sponsors have been very generous and everyone is invited to come out.

Fox Glen Golf Club in McGregor will be the site of the Windsor Chapter’s annual Bob Girard Memorial Golf Outing on Sat., Sept. 12. There is an early bird draw by registering a foursome before Sat., Aug. 15, to receive $50 off!

The Golden Horseshoe Chapter tournament was held on June 24th. More on the results can be found in this issue on page 14.

We thank everyone for supporting LO tournaments and local charities. Without your generous support, we would not be able to donate and give back as an industry. You make us all look good!
