NANAIMO GOLF
hat always seems to happen at
this tournament is the weather
starts off really bad! Well 2017 was
no different. It was not only damp, it was
cold! Oh ye of little faith wore long pants
and came prepared.
Brad McCluskie joined Colleen and I at
the registration table and set up his product displays. Protected from the weather
with a pop up tent, Brad displayed everything from gloves to wheel barrels and
some products sporting his new private brand logo. Brad thanks for your support!
As the golfers arrived they all commented on the weather, like I have control of
the rain or sun?
Oh well, we got everyone ready to roll and believe it or not, the clouds started to
lift and within an hour of tee time, the sky had cleared. And like past tournaments
our golfers were blessed with a decent afternoon.
I believe there was a record set that day for quickest round as one foursome took
less than four hours allowing for more "RnR" time. Before long more of the golfers
were finishing off and we started serving supper. The Nanaimo Golf Club are terrific
hosts and their food and service was first class. Thank you so much.
During supper Brad McCluskie whispered to me as he looked at his huge display
of products and said, "I really don't want to pack all that stuff up." We pondered for
a moment and then decided he would calculate his cost, live auction off the items
with a reserve price and anything above that we could put towards the BSIA Bursary.
That was innovative thinking. Well before you know it the auction started and one
brave fellow bought all the items and the BSIA picked up $250 for the bursary fund.
All in all a fun day, thanks for joining us and look forward to seeing everyone
next year.

BSIA INTERIOR GOLF
TOURNAMENT BLACK MOUNTAIN

T

he good weather finally arrived in late May and our
annual Interior golf tournament certainly benefited from
it. Driving to Kelowna from Vancouver on Sunday afternoon May 28th makes you appreciate how beautiful and diverse
our province is. Pulling into West Kelowna the traffic was heavy
and with temperatures in excess of 33.5 C we cranked up the air
conditioning to the maximum level.
What a change from the weeks before and perfect timing for
our tournament. Black Mountain Golf Club is a stunning 18-hole
par-71 championship course carved out of a mountainside overlooking Kelowna's
Okanagan Valley. With a morning start for our tournament most of the golfers got to
the course early to register and enjoy the great views, cooler temperatures and breakfast
on the patio. As usual, the staff are top notch and help make our tournament a favourite
stop on our annual BSIA Golf Tour. Other than a lost cell phone by one of our members
the tournament went over very well. Great food and networking and support from our
sponsors make for a fun day.
Thanks to Mike Morrow aka Mr. Fancy Pants for helping with the MC chores and
it was great to see everyone along with a number of distinguished retired guests.
Ron Tu and I completed the interior tour by meeting with four of the 2016 Orion award
regional winners and really appreciated the warm reception we received at each store.
Thanks for participating and look forward to seeing everyone next year.

he day was perfect,
not too hot, not too

not raining. At registration,

drive and hole in one was sponsored by Willis Towers

supplying us with the cedar furniture with all proceeds
from that draw going to our Bursary Fund in the amount
of $395. The day was full of laughter and fun.
Thank you to Jamey Paterson, for emceeing

Ron Tu, our Awards Committee Chair made mention of all the 2016 Orion winners and made a special
presentation to our 2016 overall Retail Orion recipients, Windsor Plywood, Coquitlam, in the Finishing
and Specialty category and Cloverdale Ace Hardware
in the Hardware category. Both had representatives
to accept the awards. The retail awards are based on
the Mystery Shop Program. The Supplier Awards are
