CALLING ALL GOLFERS WHO WANT TO BE MILLIONAIRES

As it turns out, you don't have to know a lot of trivia to win a million dollars. Those who want to be a millionaire need a little luck and a lot of golfing skill.
Thirty-six teams are signed up to play in the Chamber of Commerce 8th Annual Golf Tournament on Sunday, said Joe Aubain, Chamber executive director. "This year interest is greater than we've ever seen," said Aubain.
And no wonder. The million-dollar prize is sponsored by C.E. Brathwaite & Associates and Guardian Insurance. According to the Chamber's Ted Bast, "The golfer closest to the pin on each par three returns at the end of the tournament to shoot for a million dollar annuity on hole six."
Teams of four also will be shooting for a chance to win $20,000 in cash and prizes for a hole in one at holes 4, 8, 11, 14 and 16. Hole sponsors include Knight Quality Stations, Johnnie Walker, Caribbean Auto Mart, Diamonds International, A.H. Riise, and Bernard Passman.
"The hole-in-one prizes are a big attraction," said Aubain.
The tournament will begin at 9 a.m. at the Mahogany Run Golf Course following breakfast at 8 a.m.
Players will be treated to lunch and gifts from several sponsors. The top five teams will be awarded trophies as will the male and female golfer with the longest drive.
"It's great to have a sold-out tournament," said Aubain. Interested players are now being placed on a waiting list.
This tournament is the Chamber's chief annual fundraiser, and is made possible by sponsorships and support from many of the members. Members include more than 600 local businesses and companies that do business in the Virgin Islands.
For more information about the tournament call 776-0100 or send an e-mail to chamber@islands.vi.
