Swing & Sweep a Success


Fifty-one curlers curled and we had an amazing twenty-three golfers golfing in the SNOW at the second annual Swing & Sweep!! Now, that is the definition of a diehard golfer. Well done! We had another five hungry people join us for our lasagna dinner, made by Anita Kerfoot. Caesar salad was prepared by Debbie Lewis, with apple crisp following for dessert baked by Jean McGrath. Ireland’s Apples not only donated all the apples for the apple crisp, but also the eight bags of apples that were used as table centrepieces and prizes for each table! Many thanks! Heaps of thanks go to our bartender for the day, Richard Burroughs! As always, we had great ice, thanks to Brian Hewson!

The Smiths Falls Golf & Country Club went above and beyond the call of duty in hosting the golf portion of the day despite the wintry weather! Golf in the snow; we did not plan that a year ago, but kudos to those who played. One threesome, when on the first tee, could hear Guinness calling to them from inside the warm clubhouse and proceeded to investigate, after returning their clubs to their cars.

Keeping with “FUN” being the most important part of our fundraiser, the winning team was decided by a random draw at the end of the day. The winners of the $80.00 prize were Rick McGrath, Jean McGrath, Jean Thompson and Barry Thompson! The 50/50 prize winner of the $103.50 was Robin Milk!

Even while having a great time, we managed to achieve great success in the actual fundraising portion of the day. We raised $1654.15 to present to the club, and the bar brought in $629.30, before taxes and product (roughly $315.00). The combined total of the two for our club is $1969.15!

Thank you to all of our participants and helpers! Have a great curling and squash season!
