55th Annual Oilmen’s Golf Tournament kicked off with hole-in-one

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Fort St. John Petroleum Association’s 55th Annual Golf Tournament started off last Thursday with an incredibly rare event.Martiall Pitts works at Murray GM, who sponsors the annual golf tournament’s Hole in One challenge on the tenth hole at Lakepoint Golf and Country Club. Pitts says that the hole is incredibly challenging for a Par 3, as the hole is over 200 yards long. Sources at Lakepoint told Pitts that the hole hasn’t recorded an ace in roughly 10 to 15 years.On Thursday morning, that streak was broken as the first foursome to start on the course’s back nine teed off. When he teed off second, Fort Nelson resident Manny Gairdner was reported to have said that he felt that his shot “looked pretty good,” though he wasn’t able to see it on the green. As it turns out, the ball was actually at the bottom of the 10th Hole’s cup, earning Gairdner with his sixth hole-in-one.- Advertisement -For dropping the ball in the cup, (blank) won $25,000 towards the purchase of a vehicle from Murray GM.last_img read more

FISHERMAN WARNS OF 500IB MONSTER SHARK OFF SHORES OF DONEGAL

first_imgThe fisherman who hooked a huge shark off the coast of Donegal this week has warned – there’s a monster shark out there!Top angler Don McCloskey took almost an hour and half to land a 300Ib Porbeagle shark off Fanad Head.But now Don has revealed how friends just missed a 500Ibs shark the previous day. “I spoke to the lads and they almost had him on board but he was just too big.“They reckon he was up to 500Ibs. That is a huge fish and it will take someone special to land him,” he said.The current Irish record is 365Ibs for a shark caught off Achill head in Co Mayo in 1932.Don only had his rod in the water a few minutes last weekend when he hooked the huge female shark using a mackerel. His friends had to give him drinks and use towels to keep him cool during his battle with the massive creature.But once the shark was landed and tagged, big-hearted Don put him back into the water to fight another day.“I just couldn’t bring that fish back to shore – it was just too beautiful,” he saidDon, who is from Limavady in Co Derry and who has fished for Ireland, reckons Irish waters are alive with huge sharks.“There’s no question there are bigger sharks out there – probably even bigger than the 500Ibs one the lads nearly landed. “That’s the great thing about fishing – you just don’t know what’s going to come out of the water,” he laughed.Shark expert and marine wildlife ranger Emmett Johnston said a 500Ib shark would certainly smash the current record.“It would not only smash the Irish record but also probably the Atlantic record.“That is a very big shark. Porbeagles are real sharks in the real sense of the word because they have large teeth and eat large fish. ‘They are certainly not docile like the huge basking shark and they have been known to nibble at bather’s feet.“But they rarely come near the shore and instead stay out in deep waters,” he said.EndsFISHERMAN WARNS OF 500IB MONSTER SHARK OFF SHORES OF DONEGAL was last modified: July 29th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Don McCloskeyPorbeagle sharklast_img read more
