The weatherperson predicts that after a lot of rain overnight, the skies are supposed to clear tomorrow morning and when the golfers tee off at 12:30 p.m. at the 2013 Flamborough Open tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Carlisle Golf and Country Club, it will be dry, hot and humid with significant winds. Perfect!!
Continuing a tradition, auctioneer Jim McCartney will weave his magic – complete with his sense of humour – in a short live auction just before the post-tournament dinner. Take a look below at the auction items … and maybe there is something there that catches your fancy.
See you tomorrow!!
