It wasn't flying golf balls as much as falling trees that highlighted a wild and windy day at North Vancouver's Seymour Golf Club last week. The Seymour ladies league annual charity tournament - Divots and Dragons - was a rip roaring success despite a wind storm that knocked a tree down on the pro shop and took out power to the kitchen for an hour. Still, the gals were up "fore" the challenge which helped raise funds for the Westcoast Alternative Society’s “Kid’s FIRST” Program. Big thanks to Craftsman Collision and others who sponsored the event making it one of the most successful ever. And kudos to the chef, staff and volunteers for a fabulous day - I was literally blown away.
