Happy New Year! To all those who didn’t (or did) get the email from our prez, it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming season. Please email Brian with your intentions this year: Regular or Spare?
The 2016 AGM is tentatively set for Apr 4 at 7PM at Inglewood.
If you ever wanted to know how your leadership spends its winters, here is a photo of the Directors’ Dinner, hosted by Keith & Trudy Valk.
And here is our Prez, maintaining a dignified air at the recent wild Arizona Cardinals playoff game, flanked by Rick Blanchette and Kevin Hughes

Hopefully no one will experience this at the banquet…
Here are the teams for tonight. There are 3 guys left without a partner, so one of them (the last one there?) may be SOL. He can play golf, but won’t be winning any trophies…
UPDATE 3:00 MONDAY – We have postponed the Ironman Tournament until next week. The course is apparently now open, so you could go golf if you wanted to.
Apart from the Stamps owning the Esks again, here is the result from a slow Labour Day:
We have 4 slots booked, and only a few golfers have let Brian know that they are coming. Please do so if you haven’t yet.
