Following golf and warming up at the bar, a great meal was served by BCC staff. Then it was to the prize table, and what a prize table it was. Thanks to major sponsors Black & Decker and P&G, the prize table at the United Way tournament is like no other. Everyone went home with a great prize. Be sure to sign up next year for the United Way Golf Tournament at the BCC and you too will help with their fund raiser and be able to dig into such a splendid table of prizes.

Congratulations ladies on your great play and the BCC looks forward to being hosts to the OVGA Senior Ladies "B" Division in 2012.
The 15th annual Shorty Jenkins Curling Classic at the BCC was a huge success. Congratulations to Gord McCrady Jr. (Shorty chairman) and his more than 100 volunteers, committee members and BCC staff for again doing a great job. Changes to the playoff format had one curler state, " you just made one of the best bonspiels in the world better." Accolades were again received for the great ice provided by BCC's ice technician Jonathan Penney and crew, with curlers saying, "it's the best they might have all year". And when the curlers leave happy, everyone at the BCC is happy. Congratulations again on a great 15th Annual Shorty Jenkins Curling Classic.

With the teams established, everyone returned Saturday morning July 30th for a breakfast, as part of the package, and to select their favourite teams.
At 12:30 PM Saturday the horn sounded to start the shotgun start with two teams (six players) on each hole to play the scramble. And it was a beautiful sunny day for Sonny's scramble .... we are sure all part of the organizing! Following play, everyone again gathered in the golf lounge for the prize presentations. Given the draw process, the teams were very even giving everyone a chance for both the "gross" and "net" prizes. Thanks to Sonny Clark, Jonathan O'Reilly and their team of volunteers for organizing such a super event. You can be assured, we are all looking forward to the next "Sonny's Scramble".
Following the meal, the diners were entertained by the Brockville Thrill Dancers. A fun time was had by all. The Hawaiian Luau was just one of many themed dinner evenings presented by Denise, Joanne and staff over the year for the Club's members and guests. And while all this was going on in the BCC's upper main dining room, the lower golf lounge was hosting a full house for the team draw and dinner for "Sonny's Scramble". See related story.

The Brockville Country Club's "Country Summer Picnic" was held in the main dining room Friday evening, June 24, 2011. The event was well attended with about 100 fun-loving BCC members and guests attending. Novel to the event was the wearing of jeans in the main dining room to help with the atmosphere.
The tasty meal included BBQ chicken, vegies & new potatoes, baked beans, salads galore and a strawberry shortcake desert following some entertainment.
That entertainment was The Brockville Thrill Dancers. Lots of country music and great dancing but no rumored square dancing.
It was a fun evening and a great meal and we all look forward to the next special events: July 1 Member Flag Day BBQ and Hawaiian Night July 29, 2011.
