Ceebees fo­cus on fundrais­ing

Team holds first golf event; Crocker will be back as head coach

The Compass - - OPINION - BY NICHOLAS MERCER THE COM­PASS

Sup­port­ers of the Con­cep­tion Bay North CeeBee Stars held their first an­nual golf fundraiser June 23 at the Pitcher’s Pond Golf Course in White­way.

Sup­port­ers of the CeeBees had the op­por­tu­nity to hit the links with some of their favourite play­ers, like Matthew Thomey, Ryan De­laney, Keith De­laney, Daniel and Chris Sparkes, Mark Tobin and Kyle Doucet, in aid of the club as it pre­pares to en­ter its sea­son in the New­found­land Se­nior Hockey League.

It may come as no sur­prise that the CeeBees would put off a day of golf in sup­port of the club. It is a well-known fact that hockey play­ers en­joy hit­ting the links once the fi­nal buzzer has sounded.

The club drew in 16 teams of four for the event, which was two teams un­der the ca­pac­ity of 18. The cost to reg­is­ter was $400 per team.

Peter Ge­orge is the as­sis­tant coach with the CeeBees. He said the event went great.

“We had 16 teams show up for our first an­nual golf tour­na­ment, so it was very suc­cess­ful,” said Ge­orge.
