Now, all you want to know about 2016 Reunion Weekend

2nd Annual Reunion Weekend Fall Classic Golf Tournament.  We have almost 50 golfers registered so far so there is lots of room to add teams and individuals. This was added last year and more than 100 golfers enjoyed a 18 hole scramble tournament with carts at the nearby Garrison Golf and Curling Club.   http://rmcalumni.ca/events/2016-club-reunion-weekend-golf-classic-le-classique-de-golf-du-club/
