Hello Golfers, Hole Sponsors and Prize givers

I am very pleased to announce that the St Pauls 16 th Annual Funraiser Golf Tournament is a go !! It is being held Sat July 11.20 starting at 9 am at the usual Collicut Siding Course in Crossfield. Manager Lyndon King has a full time sanitising staff working to make sure of your safety. The restaurant can only hold 24 `socially distanced’ people at 6 round tables, so first 24 that registers get to sit inside, after that there is lots of outside seating.
I would like to thank you all for your support in previous years. Without your repeated, combined support this important Fundraiser could not go on.
As expenses are up the Golfing Fee this year is $140/golfer or $540/ foursome who register at one time / one payment. This is still one of the cheapest fees around this year. This includes 18 holes, cart, steak lunch and prizing !! We are looking for lots of hole sponsors @ $100/hole. For that you get a sign at the hole Tee-off, mention in programme and verbal recognition /advertising by me after the lunch. We are also looking for lots of Prizing items. The amount and quality of our prizing items draws lot of praise every year.
For Golfers, Hole Sponsors / Prizing, Registration will be at Store Card table as usual. Registrations, Hole sponsor and Prizing can also be mailed or dropped off at 1323, Woodside Way, NW, Airdrie, T4B 2H1.
Thank you in advance for your support. Judging by how busy the golf courses are right now, we should be successful !!
