CORN­WALL, On­tario – The 22nd an­nual Stroke Fore Stroke Golf Tour­na­ment in sup­port of the Heart & Stroke Foun­da­tion is tee­ing off at the Corn­wall Golf and Coun­try Club on Fri­day, July 27.

The event be­gins with a shot­gun start and par­tic­i­pants will have a bunch of fun ac­tiv­i­ties and food to en­joy while they make their way around the 18-hole course.

The tour­na­ment is $135 per-per­son, which gets the par­tic­i­pant a power cart, burger and beer and a choice of prime rib or chicken marsala for din­ner.

Teams will be made from groups of four. There will be prizes for men’s, women’s and mixed teams. A prize for the long­est drive, for land­ing clos­est to the pin, a 50/50 com­pe­ti­tion and $30,000 in hole-in-one prizes.

In ad­di­tion to the prizes that can be one on the green, there will also be a great se­lec­tion of items up for bid in the silent auc­tion.

This year will be a big one for this tour­na­ment, so far, there are 92 par­tic­i­pants signed up, which far ex­ceeds last year’s num­ber of 54.

Last year, the tour­na­ment raised a lit­tle over $10,000 for Heart & Stroke and they are hop­ing that they can ex­ceed that num­ber this year.

LONG SAULT, On­tario - In Canada, you don’t need neg­a­tive de­gree weather to host a hockey tour­na­ment, espe­cially if it’s for a great cause.

This Satur­day, that is ex­actly what John Clearly did at the Long Sault out­door rink.

The Duvy Cup is played in mem­ory of An­drew Du­val and gath­ers funds that go to Re­cov­ery Corn­wall with more than 50 peo­ple join­ing in to play.

“I grew up with An­drew and played a lot of hockey to­gether. When he passed away I pro­posed that we do a hockey tour­na­ment in his mem­ory,” ex­plained John Cleary.

Each player pays $20 to play with all funds be­ing do­nated, while after­ward, a 50/50 draw col­lects even more at O’neills pub in Long Sault.
