2010 GTA MTS Allstream Employee Golf Tournament

GTA employees: Sign up for the 2010 MTS Allstream Employee Golf Tournament. It was 51 years ago, back in 1958, that a number of CN employees put together a few foursomes and played a round of golf. A few years later, in 1961, the CN Engineering League tournament, the grandfather of today's MTS Allstream Toronto area Employee tournament, was launched. This tournament is open to MTS Allstream Employees, Pensioners and Suppliers at all skill levels. Back by popular demand from last year is a choice between "Best Ball" or "Stroke Play" formats. The "shotgun start" format will get underway at 1:00 pm. The cost of $100.00 per person ($75 for Pensioners) includes golf with power cart, a small bucket of balls for the driving range, and a fabulous dinner at the clubhouse. Once again this year all players will also receive a special gift, and there will be door prizes to keep you on the edge of your seat until the grand prize is awarded. For further information or to register by e-mail to .
