I Did the Limbo on the Golf Course !

limboYes that’s me doing the limbo while my nephews hold the flag pole on hole #7 at the Oxley Golf Course.mikeDuring our  visit to southern Ontario my nephew Michael organized the first annual Driedger golf tournament.the professionals I was the captain of the team I called The Professionals. I’d gone to the MCC Thrift Store to find us all ties with a golf theme. stewart paynes

Our opponents were Paul’s Paynes and

The Flying Dragons.

the kiss

Each team got points for the originality of the photos they took.  My nephew Tim came up with the ideas for most of our shots including some that were too X-rated for me to put on this blog. But this one of Tim kissing his girlfriend Penny was my idea. Here are just a few of the photos that won our team first place in the photo category. golf shot on the  highway

After the golf round we headed over to Michael and his wife Stephanie’s house for a fabulous meal where we were joined by some more Driedgers.ribs for supper

Michael had barbecued spicy ribs and everyone else had brought other parts of the meal. Soooooo good!

My great nieces helped with the trophy presentations for the winning teams. trophies

Michael had even bought champagne to put in the trophies of the winners. the flying dragons win

Dave’s team captained by our niece Hannah were the grand champions. marylou trophy

I did win a trophy however for best shot of the game. On the 12th hole I sank a 35 foot chip shot right into the hole. Honestly I think it is the best golf shot I’ve ever had!  My teammates were so happy for me and their congratulations and excitement made it a memorable moment indeed!

hannahMy niece Hannah is pregnant so Stephanie made her a special strawberry and milk drink for her toast since she couldn’t have the champagne.

Thanks Michael for organizing such a fun family time!
