The Kelowna Rockets alumni weekend swung into high gear Thursday afternoon with the teams 11th annual golf tournament. Players like Josh Gorges and Carson Germyn (above) joined the likes of Shea Weber and Luke Schenn along with close to 30 former and current players for a Texas Scramble golf tournament at the Harvest Golf and Country Club.
I had the pleasure of golfing with current Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert and public relations coordinator Kevin Parnell. Astral sales guru Peter Angle completed our foursome.
The part I enjoy most about the alumni golf tournament is rubbing shoulders with former Rockets players. In this case, Toronto Maple Leafs d-man Luke Schenn and his younger brother Brayden pose with me for a pic.
One of my personal highlites was watching former Rockets d-man Nolan Yonkman provide some comic relief while playing the role of auctioneer at the banquet afterwards.
More thoughts from the tournament later.
