2016 Road Trip

Minimize

 

It was a road trip for the ages.

 

It started, strangely enough on Thursday at noon when Dave “it’s in my electronic calendar” Colbeck informed our road warriors that he really “f&<!#” up”. He had thought the trip was on the following weekend and could not make the trip. From Friday to Sunday, we had all joked that Dave was awful quiet! But that he was playing very good golf!!!!!

Friday’s challenge at Manitou saw Claude “Camel Toe” Desormeaux put on a show with his irons winning many of the closest to the pins and winning the “Guyford” scoring (a version of stableford scoring from the mind of Izzy) event.

 

After a short ride to Royal Laurentien and checking into our chalet (hot tub, pool, located just off the 18th fairway allowing us to cart over between rounds) played a round of “Cleaners” with Mike “KCWL” Krewski getting eagle on the par 5 15th hole. Practice rounds are now done and the Warrior Challenge is up next! Time for pool and hot tub action!

 

Saturday Warrior’s Challenge brought out great shots all around, with the absent Colby helping out his partners now and then with fabulous shots (ha ha!!). With a slight change in format in an attempt to ensure our reigning 3-time warrior Steve “No Back” (really I am a 15) Karam did not 4-peat, all the golfers ended the day with a win-loss-tie record for all 36 holes. Darren “Giggles” Porter took home the crown with 22 points (W-L-T record of 15-7-14) edging out Guy “Izzy” (losing again by one effing point) Bourgon who had 21 points (16-10-10). See all the results below.

The Saturday feast, with “King” Louis Pilon tending the BBQ, was absolutely master chef worthy. The bonfire entertainment of Pierre “Walking Tall and Carrying a Big Stick” Denis was a great prelude to Mark “Pops” St Laurent’s professions of drunken love to the Tragically Hip.  

 

Sunday’s Hangover Cup round was affected by rain but we managed 9 holes at the Diable in the pouring rain before saying enough. Pierre and Guy teamed up coming in at 1 over to claim the Hang Over Cup. Thanks to all who participated – yes even you Dave who physically showed up for the 9 holes on Sunday -  and giving us all fun competition and great memories for the summer of 2016.

All in all, it was another great weekend trip for the guys from the NCGT and beyond.

Thanks again to all who made this trip such a great time, thanks for all the laughs and the fun we had was PRICELESS!!
