We're in Avonlea, Saskatchewan today - destination #4 in our annual Great 8 Summer Tour for Hawk's Agro on 800 CHAB.

I can tell you about many memorable moments in Avonlea and out at their Long Creek Golf & Country Club over the years.  Good times with good people.

I'll never forget the lesson in finances I learned many years ago at the golf course.  I was in a charity tournament and playing in a group that included a multi-millionaire.  

He wasn't interested in visiting with his teammates that day.  I found it amusing that he spent most of the day in the bushes, looking for golf balls.  He came away with lots of scratches on his skin and dozens of golf balls.

After the game, I brought that up with the other two.  They thought it was funny too. And, one of the guys said it:  "It's just one of the reasons why he has more money than the three of us put together.  He never has to buy golf balls."
