Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
Today is a big day at Saugeen Golf Club for the Port Elgin Rotary Club as they conduct the 24th annual Jeff Preston Golf Tournament.
From sincere beginnings, this event has evolved and stayed extremely stable for more than 2 decades and if, IF, they have a great day again today, their fundraising efforts will bypass $ 1.5 million dollars.
What else ?
Well, tonight, Owen Sound Grey Motors United entertains the Polish Eagles in a Kitchener & District Soccer League game.
The Eagles are 4-1 & 1 on the year and just one win away from catching 1st Serbia for first place in the league standings.
Grey Motors United sit 7th in the standings, but an upset win tonight on home turf would launch them into a tie for 4th place.
Game time is 9 pm at the Kiwanis Soccer Complex.
We talked yesterday about the Senior Lacrosse Semifinal between the Owen Sound Bug Juice Senior NorthStars and Six Nations.
Keep in mind Game 2 is Sunday night at 7 in Owen Sound.
If you want MORE Lacrosse, the Owen Sound Masters are hosting a 19 team tournament that starts tonight and runs through Sunday.
Finally, the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League signed their first round draft pick, German defenceman Moritz Seider.
Seider is a frozen import on the Owen Sound Attack roster.
What does the signing mean for Owen Sound ?
This hand won't be played out until well into September, so we may as well enjoy golf, soccer, lacrosse and Summer before we focus on what may, or may not, happen for the Attack as it pertains to Seider.
Have a great weekend.
I'm Fred Wallace
