More than 100 sponsors and invited guests enjoyed a team stableford competition over 9 holes, teeing off at 3pm. Thanks for your great support of IHC - $800 raised on the Par 3's. After returning to the clubhouse where the legendary Akarana hospitality continued, MC Awen Guttenbiel got proceedings underway with the draw to allocate sponsors their holes  for the Charles Tour four day tournament April 23 - 26.
