Golf, jeopardy and Special Olympics Princeton

On Saturday, May 7, 2011, 75 attended the 4 Annual Special O Fundraising Golf Tournament held at the Princeton Golf Club.

All were treated to a delicious baron of beef dinner prepared by Ina and her staff at the Golf Club restaurant Divots.  Leslie Thornley from B.C. Special Olympics and Bob Hazell local coordinator for Penticton Special O both attended the event and are looking forward to returning next year.

Las Vegas style golf (rolling of the dice) organized by Kelsey Kelglovic  provided fun and opportunity to win for all golfers.  Golf team winners were Glenn, Ian, Kim and Tom. Runner-up team was Chris Morphy, Lisa Coulter and Jamie Ashley. Most honest team was Gary Dobie, Dan, Kathy Falcon and John.  Men’s longest drive Glenn Weisbach, Women’s longest drive was Lisa Coulter, Ladies KP was Suzanne Holland. , Men’s KP was Ian Allen, Most trees was John Thornley, Most Sand won by Bruce Morphy.

An assortment of  donated silent auction items gave the bidders lots to choose from with the Ryan Kesler signed Canucks signed stick and Canucks jersey bringing in the most bids.

The hilarious Jeopardy show was hosted by Alex Trebek, our own Al Lambe from the Golf Club RV site.  Connie Howe (Fundraising Special “O” Princeton)  was the  Jeopardy official  The answers came fast and mostly correct with Jan Martin from Osoyoos being  the winner. Many of the audience knew the answers, but had to keep quiet and let their chosen table contestant compete for them.   Jan not only won the prestige Jeopardy Winner T-shirt donated by Jackie at Auto Tac Designs and Embroidery, but Dairy Queen Blizzard coupons for all at their table.  Thanks Dairy Queen Princeton.

A free Day Spa Draw was open to all mothers attending the event.  Emily Sheppard (our Special O bowling coach) won a day at the Spa donated by Cindy’s Spa (Princeton) and lunch  donated by Stephanie Mintzler at Around the  Corner Café.  The Putting challenge run by Glenn Weisbach was won by Gary Dobie.  Gary donated all his winnings back  to Special O.  Our reverse draw was won by Lisa Coulter with her donating back much of her winnings.    Thank you to the Golf Club for providing a nice green course and to the weather man for keeping the rain off of our golfers.  Big thanks to all the business and individuals that so kindly donated any prizes or silent auction item.

The day was truly a success.  See you all next year.  Look out for something new and different along with the fun golf.
