This day was first made possible thanks to the Longhorn hockey team, who unanimously offered to change their fundraising golf tournament into the Scotty Brown Memorial. A better group of guys would truly be difficult to find. The task of organizing the day then fell to Derek Bell, Darrell Hannan, and Wes Pearson, who somehow managed to pull organizational skill and chaos into a seamless day enjoyed by all. A special thanks also goes to Dan Honeyball, Sara Campbell, Mike White (Pemberton Valley Golf Course), Pete and Pat, Erin and Chachi, Holly, Homey, and Alistor. Each of these people showed their love and respect for Scott by going above and beyond the call of duty, offering unique contributions to help make the day memorable.

Our deepest gratitude goes out to the following individuals and companies who offered exceedingly generous donations:

The Wildflower Restaurant at the Chateau Whistler, Nicklaus North Golf Club, Scott Hannan #22 of the San Jose Sharks, Whistler IGA, Nesters, Mongolie Grill, Cougar Mountain, Blackcomb Snowmobile, Wildwood Café, Meadow Park Recreation Centre, Whiski Jack Resort, Moe Joe’s, Maxximum, The Longhorn Saloon, The Armsterdam Pub, and Ty Hiebert.

We would also like to thank McCoo’s, The Keg, Dubh Linn Gate, Casa, Araxi, Dog-Legge, Tapley’s, Pemberton Market Place IGA, Caramba, Julie’s House of Esthetics, Canadian Snowmobile Adventure Company, Helly Hansen, Pharsyde, Bestsellers, The Wicked Wheel, and The Dave Murray Ski Camp.

Finally, an extra special thank you to all those who participated in the tournament. The year 2003 was a year of heartache and tragic loss for many. It is a tribute to how valuable and missed these people are in our lives that we continue to come together and celebrate their memory. As Scott’s sister, I burst with pride and gratitude when I recall the outpouring of love and support offered by his friends, hockey team, and the community he had come to love so much. Hope to see you all next year.
