Crowning the club's best
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The Yellowknife Golf Club will determine who the best golfers of the year are as it holds the Club Championships beginning tomorrow.
It's a 36-hole stroke play tournament with tee times beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow and Sunday. There will be men's, women's, senior men's and women's and junior boys and girls titles up for grabs. The lowest gross score for each division will win and players will be seeded according to their handicaps before the tournament.
Run with the dogs ... or without
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The NWT SPCA is giving dogs and masters the chance to run together this weekend along the Pat McMahon Frame Lake Trail.
The Memorial Dog Walk and 5K Run is happening on Sunday and is a chance for runners or walkers to go for a run with their pets. If you don't have a pet, that's fine as you can take part as a runner or walker.
The event is a fundraiser and all dogs must be well-behaved, if you're bringing one.
There's also a kids carnival happening at the same time with a bouncy castle, games and cotton candy on offer.
Registration is happening at the Zone 4 website and it all begins at 10 a.m.
Yellowknife back on the links
