The Big Val­ley Elks held their In­ter-Lodge golf tour­na­ment on Satur­day, Jul. 15 with 30 golfers vy­ing for the prizes. Elks from Halkirk, Cas­tor, Hanna, and Stet­tler par­tic­i­pated. Lo­cal golfers and Big Val­ley Elks mem­bers helped round out the num­bers and made it a very en­joy­able day. Spe­cial thanks to Buster Watts and Don Fooks for their as­sis­tance in en­sur­ing no one went thirsty.

Most hon­est was the team of Dan Web­ster, Rita Kyn­cyl and Don Kent. With a score of 31, John Paul, Terry Nolty and John Demos were the best team. Prox­im­ity prizes were scooped by Sue Boswell, Rita Kyn­cyl, Larry Doell, and John Paul.

The af­ter­noon was rounded out with a steak sup­per pre­pared by some great ladies and Sue’s sun shades were much ap­pre­ci­ated. Once again Len Cur­rie did an out­stand­ing job or­ga­niz­ing the tour­na­ment and the Elks’ Chil­dren's Char­ity ben­e­fited from his Mul­li­gan for Kids event. Thanks to all who as­sisted in mak­ing this a top­notch event for our vis­i­tors and thanks to the lo­cal golfers who con­tinue to sup­port the cause.
