Canadian farewell

March saw the SunBird Canadians tee it up for their final social event of the 2018/2019 season. Over 100 northerners enjoyed an 18-hole scramble on March 17. Golf was followed by a hot and delicious pizza dinner from Barro’s Pizza in our ballroom.

Thank you to our local realtors: Ruth Ann Hobbs, Theda Portanova, Dana and Scott Smith, Royal Henry and Denny Moore of Four Peaks Pest Control, for sponsoring KP prizes for men and women on four holes.

This annual event is social golf, an opportunity for fellow Canadians to mix and mingle one last time before returning to their respective provinces – from British Columbia to Ontario.

A heartfelt thank you to our many American friends and neighbours for the warm hospitality they have extended to more than 200 Canadians who winter at SunBird. Also, thank you to Layne, Wendy and the office staff for coordinating our social activities; to John and the maintenance crew for maintaining our facilities; and to Joe and the grounds crew for keeping our resort in pristine condition. Thank you to Marc and the turf crew for our fantastic course conditions.

‘Til we meet again in the fall, a happy and healthy summer to all.
