1st Annual Golf Tournament and Fundraiser

N-Wildland Firefighters: Kieran Minde, Leon Moonias, Byron Moonias and Irvin Brown

Mark August 16th, 2019 as the date the Neyaskweyahk Group of Companies hosted their 1st Annual Golf Tournament and Fundraiser at the Montgomery Glen in Wetaskiwin Alberta. A tremendous success.

“A great turnout of people supporting a great cause” said the CEO Sam Minde as 72 golfers (18 teams of 4) braved the cold and windy day. A low of 12 and wind gusts of 34 kms/h proved challenging for even the most experienced players on the course that day. “I had to use my 9 iron from 140 yards, I normally use my pitching wedge” said golf legend Tony Minde Jr.

A special thank you to our sponsors, SkyFire Energy, Peters Energy Solutions and MLT Akins.

$6000 in cash prizes was paid out 1st, 2nd and 3rd for both A & B divisions and each team received a respectable prize for their efforts. Feedback received was “well run and organized” so we are hoping for a greater turnout for next years Tournament and Fundraiser, so look forward to next year golfers. More info to post….
