The weather was better than it might have been for the 20th annual KMA golf tournament that was held at the Kettle Valley Golf Club last Saturday. The tournament was started two decades ago to commemorate Allan Otto, a member and volunteer who passed at a young age.

Each year the tournament continues to grow as golfers (members and non-members) gather for a day of fun, camaraderie, to recapture memories and express gratitude to all the volunteers who have so generously donated their time and efforts in keeping this exceptional course running.

Otto’s daughter Amanda Turner, now living in Kelowna, was present again this year. So was his younger brother, Pat Reineccius, who had travelled from Ohio to attend this year.

“First it was too hot, then it was too cold, then it was too hot,” said Amanda with a smile and a laugh. “But there was no snow so that was a bonus.”

Taking first place this year were Joe Portelance, Tom Boyo, Bob Boyo, Stacey Ludwar and Gary Schierbeck.

Placing second were Ian March, Jim Madder, Harry Edstrom, Lynda Dennill and Bruce Thorne.

Third place went to Cal Bond, Terry Ferguson, Ewan Turner, George Hayes and Bonnie Edstrom.

Fourth was taken by Devin Hallstrom, Aaron Pownall, Bob Lebarron, Liesje Gough and Sue Hayes.
