Preparing for Race the River COURIER-ISLANDER

A soggy evening last Tuesday didn’t deter members of the BraveHearts and River Spirit dragon boats teams recently as they tested the capacity of the Campbell River Tyee Club’s new docks. The Tyee Club has once again generously donated use of their docks to the two teams for their Fourth Annual Race the River Dragon Boat

Preston’s ace a big winner at Storey Creek

Regatta on Saturday, June 28. With more than 400 paddlers, drummers and tillers to be loaded and unloaded into the 50-foot long dragon boats throughout the day, the organizers needed to make sure that everything will go safely and smoothly. The event will take place at Dick Murphy Park on the Tyee Spit with racing starting at 9 a.m. and continuing throughout the day. The public is encouraged to come and enjoy the races, vendors, entertainers and a salmon barbecue provided by Marine Harvest. Radio 97.3 The Eagle will also be on location. There will be plenty of parking behind Superstore and a free shuttle provided by Pacific Western Transit to transfer everyone to and from the site.

The champ is back on top of the leaderboard. Reigning Storey Creek Men’s Club champion Geoff Hancock shot an even par 36 to win low gross Wednesday in regular club play. But the biggest news on the day was the eagle Dale Preston hit on the par three No. 5 - yes that’s a holein-one. The ace netted Preston the pot of gold, skin and snip. Crown Isle golfers took part in interclub play and it was their captain Gary Coleman coming in with low gross on the high side with a 40. Lawrence Renauld won low net on the high side with Brain Hutchinson winning low net on the low side. Discovery Chiropractic won the team game with the foursome including Don Hincks, Don Sinoski, Lorne Anderson and Curtis Hill. The Property Guys came in second and Boston Pizza placed third. Jim Dickson won the Haida Liquor Store KP on No. 7, with Hancock winning the Chinook long drive and Eric Phlip the Coastal Eyecare long drive. Sukhy Bains won the Property Guy’s long drive on No. 9 and Phil Ballan won the Coastal Mountain Fuels Explosion Award.

In Support Of

GARY SCHELL for being APRIL

What is the root of all evil? Some say selfishness, and Saint Paul said it was the love of money, but perhaps it is really just fear, since fear is at bottom the unwillingness or inability to trust God. While we should be a bit dubious about reducing everything, especially something as complicated as sin or evil, to one simple thing, the more we reflect on this the more we see that fear does indeed reside at the basis of many sins. Consider how greed (or the love of money) derives from a fear that our future will be destitute and that money will somehow guarantee our security. Negative emotions like jealousy and envy are often borne of the fear that we will lose our loved ones to more attractive or talented rivals. Anger is quite often just fear that has turned outward: the startled response to a slammed door is quickly replaced by anger directed at the door slammer. But, perhaps this is as it should be: anger and fear are appropriate at the right time and place, and when tempered by reason and mercy. Perhaps no one thing is the root of all evil and perhaps there are many roots of many evils. Greed is one thing, while fear and anger are another, or to quote Joseph Butler, “everything is what it is and not another thing.”
