HENRY SAMPSON MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT (HSMGT)
The decision has been made to amalgamate the HSMGT and the RCACA Golf Tournament for this year rather than compete with each other and force folks to choose.
We had a 143 registered golfers for the original HSMGT date of 28 July. Currently we are sitting at 85 golfers for the combined tournament. I have heard from pretty much everyone who was registered and it is fully understandable that many of you cannot make the new date for a variety of reasons. What I am hoping with this email is that you will continue to pass the word to the entire Black Hat world about the change in dates and that our registered numbers will continue to grow.
Attached is a new Registration form that you can use if you are not already registered or you can pass it to anyone you know who may not have received the news about the change in dates and wants to participate. If you have already registered, there is no need to fill out this new form.
We have some great prizes for the Mulligan draw this year and Clarence has used his corporate contacts to acquire some significant prizes that will be raffled off as well. The course is drying out and should be in great shape by the end of the month. If I have already heard from you about your availability for the new date then please do not feel obligated to tell me again. Please continue to spread the word.
HSMGT/RCACA Golf Tournament, Shotgun start at 1300hrs, 25 August at the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club.
