Register for virtual golf

It's one of the most action-packed events in Kamloops every summer, but because of the pandemic, it's set to run virtually this year.

Participants can can officially register on Monday for the Kamloops Brain Injury Association's Gur Singh Memorial Golf Tournament.

Supporters will play an online game of golf called Super Stickman Golf 2, between Sept. 1 and 11.

Instructions on how to play, which app to download, and where to send your score will be given after registration. 

Like any golf tournament, the Gur Singh Memorial will end with a final evening presentation, but this time it;ll be done virtually.

On Sept. 11 at 5 p.m., there will be online messages by survivors, game highlights, a raffle draw, and best-place prizing.

Anyone interested in participating can register here.

Dr. Gur Singh was a surgeon in Kamloops who started the annual KBIA Golf Tournament in 2004. Over the years, the tournament has become a powerhouse fundraiser for the non-profit, inspiring Kamloops citizens and businesses to support people who are living with a brain injury in the community.

“Dr. Singh started this tournament 17 years ago as he saw first-hand the impact our life skill workers and programs can positively have on brain injury survivors," said Dave Johnson, KBIA's executive director. "He was a creative and motivated gentleman, and we hope to honour his memory once again with a creative solution to the current situation.”
