Over 40 Members, candidates, CPA students and their guests, hit the links and braved a cold wet start of the day but then luckily, the clouds cleared up in the early afternoon.  The tournament was followed by a buffet dinner at the clubhouse where players were rewarded with their choice of salmon, chicken or beef burgers.

Prizes were awarded for various player accomplishments.  And, funds were raised to support the recently created CPABC North Shore/Sunshine Coast Chapter Award at Capilano University by raffling tickets to a beautiful original artwork donated by local artist and member Katie Rodgers CPA CMA.
