Deo/Gosselin Interviews, Golf update, Junior Prep Camp continues, local sports update,

First things first - apologies for the lull in posts. It's been a busy summer and especially busy lately with some days off out of town for my brother in law's wedding!

Bruce came in for the Alberni Golf Club Men's Club Update today and I said "I need to do a much overdue blog update" "YAH NO KIDDING" was reply! Sorry I've been busy...and it's summer! Just too many things going on that see me never sit down at thee ole' computer!

Here's our crew in our best finery from the wedding!
Back to work - by request by several blog readers here are the most recent Bulldog Recruit Interviews from the 93.3 The Peak FM Morning Show....

It's Men's Night tomorrow night at the Alberni Golf Club! Great prizes, great dinner, great fun! Call the Pro Shop at 250-723-5422 to get entered!

Taking a vote here - who has better form? Yours truly (top) or Bulldogs Assistant Coach Adam Hayduk (bottom) In the end the picture doesn't tell the story, Adam's ball is going to slice where I guarantee mine is down the middle!  Who cares if it's the middle of the wrong fairway!
See Bruce in the Pro Shop for a couple cool items that I just had to take a picture to "blog it" as the boys say....the Bubba Watson special limited edition PINK PING driver, and my personal favorite, the Stewie Griffin headcover!
I will have one of each please!

Here's the Alberni Golf Club Men's Club Update courtesy Gerry Fagan...thanks as always Gerry!

50 golfers played in the Dairy Queen two man Iron Man on Sunday July 22.  Craig Acland and Keith Gauthier posted first low gross.  Sam Parhar and Brett Parhar were second followed by Preban Rasmussen and Dennis Debolt.  First low net were Kevin Carlton and Mark Anderson followed by Jim Lawler and Frank Hastings, Jacques Giovetti and John Jones, George DeFrane and Paul Saulnier, Jim Rhodes and Ron Barker.

On #2 Craig Acland was closest to the pin.  Art Fowler collected $33 for his closest to the pin shot on #4.  Sam Parhar scored closest to the pin on #13 and Ken Fong was closest on #17.  On #6 Keith Gauthier put his second shot closest to the pin.  The Westwind Pub put up a gift certificate for the long drive on #5 and Ken Fong walked off with that prize.

No winner on the hidden hole this week so $296 will be up for grabs next Sunday.

On Thursday Gene Kimoto aced #13.  Way to go Gene!

Next Sunday is the Van Isle Ford Scramble.  The computer will pick 4 man teams for a shotgun start at 8AM sharp.  Please enter with your handicap in the Pro Shop.  There will be pari-mutual betting available.

The Junior Prep Camp continues at the Multplex - Thanks to Doug Lindores for sending this note along...

The groups also have a one and a half hour practise schedule    and today each team has a game.

Also the goaltenders get special traing with the goaltender group led by Brady Johnson and his team of six other coaches.   Harrisson May former goaltender with the Dogs is working with goalies.  Harrison is attending the University of Ottawa.

Lots happening for the kids, the usual day is two dry lands and two ice schedules of one and a half hours each

FINALLY - A couple quick Rugby hits here...thanks to Randy for sending the info along!

Kate Schievink of the ADSS Ladies High School Provincial Champions just came back from the BC summer games and won bronze with the U-17 girls island team. She had a great time and experience and learned a lot about 7s. This was Kate’s first experience at the 7s game and she looks forward to helping Ryan Hall get a girls 7s team started at the high school next year. Over the tourney she gained more playing time and in the bronze medal game earned a starting position and played the entire match. Congratulations!


 Congratulations to Luke Bradley who on the heels of a trip to England with Canada U17 used a trip to the Provincial Region Competition with the Island Tsuanmi U17 to get noticed by the selection committee of Team BC.  He completed a training camp this past week and was selected to attend the National Tournament.  The competition was stiff and he was able to endure.
