Participants of the final Bob Newcombe Memorial Golf Scholarship Tournament celebrate the event’s great success on the 10th anniversary of the Cominco mine disaster, which claimed the life of Newcombe. The longtime Cranbrook resident was an avid golfer and member of Cranbrook Golf Club prior to his sudden passing.

Over its years, the charity golf tournament in Newcombe’s name has raised more than $20,000, with scholarships for the purpose of university education or post-secondary apprenticeship programs being awarded to eligible students at Mount Baker Secondary School who are also junior golfers.

Organizers of the tournament wished to extend their deepest gratitude and thanks to all participants and businesses that have contributed unselfishly to the event’s success over the years.
