G8 Kelowna 2010

This past week, Thursday to Sunday, I went on our annual golf trip with 8 good buddies. We call it the G8 Summit. 4 days, 7 rounds of golf, 13 matches, 1 winner. This year the Clydesdales won and Bob "Big Dawg" Gallimore won the individual trophy for the golfer who played closest to their handicap. This year was a little different from past years. We stayed right at the Predator Ridge golf course in Vernon, BC. The accommodations were 5 star and the golf was amazing. Here are a few pictures from the trip. I am already counting down the days until next year...

The condo was so comfortable. A million times better then the days inn we were used too. The Kitchen...

We all spent alot of time in the fescue. Here is Buttercup chopping one out onto the green

I'm sorry, I know you guys want to be called the Caballeros, but when you dress like this we have to bring back the name "The Gay Caballeros"

There were a bunch of turtles in the pond by the first tee. very cool. I think this one is Toronto Toms cousin.
