Now that’s a birdie

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -


Spec­ta­tors at the 2015 At­lantic Canada In­ter­na­tional Air Show will see 5,000 golf balls fall from the sky.

And one of those balls will make some­one $10,000 richer.

The golf balls will be dropped from a Cor­morant he­li­copter at about 5 p.m. Aug. 22 over the air­field area at Sle­mon Park.

The golf ball and its cor­re­spond­ing ticket num­ber that is in or clos­est to the hole means $10,000 for the lucky ticket holder.

The sec­ond clos­est ball brings a prize of $1,000.

Af­ter the drop, 10 prizes of $100 and 20 prizes of $50 will be hand-drawn from all the ticket stubs.

Tick­ets are on sale at the Boys and Girls Club of Summerside and on the day of the air show un­til 4 p.m.

Tick­ets are $10 each or three for $25.

All pro­ceeds raised go to the de­vel­op­ment and sup­port of the Air Force Avi­a­tion Park at Sle­mon Park.

Al Poirier is on the fundrais­ing com­mit­tee for the Air Force Her­itage So­ci­ety, which is putting on the golf ball drop.

He said it’s go­ing to be quite the sight to see thou­sands of golf balls re­leased from the he­li­copter.

“It’s go­ing to be very ex­cit­ing. We’re feel­ing like kids again.”
