Fellow Golf Lovers and Friends of Tony Salo & Steve Karp ...



It is my pleasure to announce one more tournament to raise money for cancer research in the name of Tony Salo. As some of you may remember, last year’s tournament was rained out but we had a great time watching cars and small houses being blown across the first fairway while we ate, drank, gave out prizes and reminisced about the Salo family basement in Winnipeg and Tony and Linda’s back porch in North Van. Thanks to everyone who came out.


On Saturday, September 27th, at twelve noon we will be teeing off again at Langara Golf Course. Fees for golf and dinner will be $95. We hope to give out many prizes and give you lots of opportunities to contribute to the BC Cancer Foundation while we enjoy a day of golf. The tournament will be a best-ball Texas-scramble style game (which makes it easy even for non-golfers to enjoy themselves) and was a lot of fun the first year we did it.


I would like to add Steve Karp’s name as one whom we are honoring with this tournament. Steve was a close friend of mine and Tony’s. He was also an avid golfer. He passed away last fall after battling cancer for the second time.


Please help us raise money, remember friends that are no longer here and enjoy the company of those that are.


If you would like to participate, please contact me at:




(Payments can also be made to this e-mail address but, because of paypal charges, please deposit $100.00) to discuss reserving a spot for you at this year’s tournament.


Thanks and I hope to see you soon.
