The Lake Cowichan branch of the Royal Canadian Legion was lucky to have picked a sunny afternoon for its annual spring golf tournament, Sunday, June 26.

With players quick to point out how beautiful the weather was, several foursomes teed off shotgun-style throughout March Meadows Golf Course.

Players were also quick to point out which one of their teammates carried the foursome, as it was a Texas scramble (best-ball) tournament.

Taking lead of the 21 teams was a Lake Cowichan/Youbou foursome of Mike Griffiths, John White, Bob Fish, and Cathy Fish, with a score of -3.

After expenses were paid off, organizer Sam Jones estimates that the spring tournament raised about $700 for the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

The golf tournament is one of two the Legion puts on every year. The next such tournament will take place some time in September.
