Clippers planning tee time

The Nanaimo Clippers will pick up their hockey sticks soon, but first they’ll swing the golf clubs.

The team is holding its Colliers International and Nanaimo Clipper Mid-Island Charity Golf Tournament Aug. 15 at Fairwinds Golf Club at Nanoose Bay. The event is a fundraiser for the junior A hockey club and will also benefit the Columbian Centre Society.

Special guests include Clippers part-owner Kelly Hrudey and NHLer and Clippers alumni David LeNeveu. Each foursome will play with a Clippers player from the past or present.

Cost to participate is $195, which includes 18 holes of golf, a power cart, lunch and a dinner banquet. Tickets are also available for just the banquet, for $45.

For information on sponsoring the event or playing in it, please call Farren Ferguson at 250-751-0593 or 250-619-7700.
