The purpose of this tournament is of course to gather all of Tim's and Busher's friends and family to have a great day playing golf and also remember our friends who dedicated most of their lives to the RCAC and the RCD. The idea for this event came up when Dean Jones and I both said we should do something that could bring all of us together in a place where they served and truly called home. I think we have plenty of interest and I look forward to this inaugural event and making this an annual event for RCAC members.
