Writing this from the table after a fantastic dinner at the Morningstar Golf Club. Few things taste as good as the meal does after a long day on the course of 18 holes with a few beverages mixed in.
One of the benefits of being the MC is that you can call some shots and send your table up to eat early. Don't want the event to lag behind while the MC is eating. Needless to say those sharing my table appreciate the approach!
It's an honour to be a part of this event, which in its 9 years has now given away $50,000 scholarships in Aaron C. Cornwell's name. It's a way for me to give something back to this game that has given me so much. A big sincere thanks to Perry and Debbie Elderbroom and Gold in the Net for having me back every year!
The highlight of this years event was about 10 minutes ago as Mike Cornwell was addressing the crowd ... and at that exact moment the LA Kings tied the game against the Ducks with 7 seconds left. Mike and Diana are Ducks Season Ticket holders. They didn't find it as funny as everyone else did!
