Loyola Alumni Golf Tournament
On August 20 at the prestigious Le Mirage Golf Club in Terrebonne, Que., 137 golfers waited through an early rainstorm but eventually enjoyed a round of golf, dinner and a prize draw (a few even spotted film star Samuel Jackson scurry in from the rain) at the 25th annual Concordia Alumni Golf Tournament. Among the winners were Gavin Correa, BCom 88, as Low Net, Alumni (70), Peter Banks, BCom 83, as Low Gross, Alumni (77), and Ron Rappel, BSc 80 (at right), who won a set of golf clubs and a signed Montreal Canadiens sweater, presented by tournament committee member John Freund, L BCom 64. The event provided $24,000 for scholarships for the 2000-2001 academic year.
Loyola Loyola Club Dinner
At the Loyola Club Dinner, October 19 at Montreals Delta Hotel Centre-Ville, 240 alumni and friends enjoyed the distinctly Canadian humour of Don Ferguson, L BA 70, and Roger Abbott, of the Royal Canadian Air Farce, seen here after being presented with Loyola football jerseys. The evening was a great success and featured an unrehearsed and surprisingly funny performance by Rector Frederick Lowy reading from a script written by Abbott and Ferguson.
