To the editor:

Sunday, Aug. 9 marked the eighth annual Kevin Broderick (KB) Memorial Golf Tournament at Craig Wood Golf Course. Sixty-four golfers, 16 teams, ranging from 24 to 85 years of age, played golf in Kevin's memory. Kevin, a teacher and goalie coach at National Sports Academy, passed away in May 2008 after four courageous years battling Ewing's sarcoma.

In addition to the overall tournament winners, the coveted KBFEHL Title went to Jeremy Colby, Don Mortensen, Chris Ericson and Josh Spanburgh. Tournament organizers Seann Cassidy and Keith Clark want to congratulate the following winners: closest to the pin, Bunny Torrance and Lee Jopling, and longest drive, Lisa Warner and Matthew Castonguay.
