ANAVETS Command Golf was held Saturday June 18,2022. A number of us were at the Unit until 10:00 am, and then off to the Golf Course. Just at that time it began to rain and it came down very heavy, I took the perimeter route and after 3 or 4 kms no mor rain fell. We had a cloudy day but no rain on the Golf Course. After golf most of us went to the Host Unit # 1 John Osborn.
After a while they began to announce the results and they started with 4th place and worked up to the Best team. Surprising toa lot of us we were the lowest team in the 4 groups that entered making 3x4 or 12 points to the Command Sport Shield. Our teams were Masters– President Bill Sadler, Bill Sutherland, Stan Jkrowski and Rick Thain. ( picture on page 20). Mens—Sheldon Clupp, Chuck Black, Mark Buchan and Rick Skabar. Ladies– Barb Sadler, Maxine Beatty, Sharon Bugden and Laura Skabar. Well done. I was asked to play for Rockwood and our group were in 2nd place for the Masters. Syd Stamper and Ed Buchan also spared for another team but I did not get which team or position. We were fed a nice supper and had a couple of drinks. Job well done by Command and John Osborn.
