I had the opportunity to be involved in a great event last Friday. It was a golf-a-thon for the kids help phone and we broke ALL records. In a single day, we raised $295,000 for this great cause. I feel very fortunate that I could be involved in this great event – not only did we raise a ton of money for a great cause but it was also the experience of a lifetime. My partner and I played 54 holes of golf at Angus Glen GC (One of Canada’s nicest courses – I had to leave early, or we would have played 9 more!). I had the longest drive of my life – 340 YARDS (Yes, you sarcastic BASSES, it was with the wind and downhill, but who cares! 340 yards!) and I won a key of beer. I was the closest to the keg on a 250 yard drive. I actually was closest 2 out of 3 drives.
Take a look at my partners clothes below (He is hiilarious! And yes, he did change his clothes half way through!)
Now, here is the thing – in my university days, this would have brought copious amounts of joy. Woo hoo! A keg of beer. I must be getting old because my reaction (After laughing) is .. what the heck am I going to do with a keg of beer? I think we will have a pool party and invite a bunch of friends over, that will deal with at LEAST 7% of the volume ……. maybe they will let me trade it in for a few good bottles of wine (smile)
