Penticton and Friends Celebrity Golf Classic - Gran Fondo in Penticton
This weekend was chocko block with activity in our city.
The Penticton and Friends Celebrity Golf Classic held the 10th annual charity golf tournament on Friday and Saturday. Some people may remember it used to be the Andy Moog and friends celebrity Golf Classic. This year was dedicated to a local restaunture Rob Wylie the former owner of Salty’s Beach House. Over the years they have raised lots of money and seen celebrities, pro hockey players, retired pro hockey players, politicians, and fathers and sons hitting the links with a vengeance (and then some!) Although as far as I know there was no clubs tossed into the way to numerous water hazards.
On top of that;
Everywhere you looked cyclists were zooming along looking all very professional in their brightly colored (not to mention tight fitting!) outfits. But I digress….. The weather was perfect for a long ride such as this, warm but not zoiling hot. Congratulations to all the participants. Well done.
To see some great photos of the race go to My Penticton Photography.
While this was going on people who were looking for a more sedentary way to spend the day were drifting down the channel parkway doing their summer thing. Ah, bliss……
Penticton is such a happening place!
Thankyou Travlin' Pat for covering these two weekend sports events.
