It’s Time to Tee-Up!

By Darrell Weiland, Warm Beach Camp Foundation Director

“FORE!” I yelled! My shot went left and into the woods, “OB” – out of bounds. Fortunately, we were playing best ball and I was confident that Phil could put it long and in the fairway – which he did!

That’s one of the benefits of playing in a tournament like the one we will be holding on Monday, September 22, 2008. This will be the second annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Golf Tournament, and again it will be held at one of Washington State’s best golf courses – The Plateau Club in Sammamish.

Player check-in begins at 10 am through 11:45 am, and the driving range will be open (for those like me who are trying to find their swing!).

Between 11 and 11:30 am, we’ll have a putting contest. Remember the adage, “Drive for show, putt for dough!” After the putting contest, we’ll have a quick lunch.

At noon, players will go to their assigned starting hole for a “shotgun” start. We anticipate finishing the tournament by 5 pm, followed by a delicious dinner featuring awards for contests such as low team score, individual closest to the pin, individual long drive, etc. We’ll also have the opportunity to acquire some great items during our “silent auction.”

This is a great opportunity to not only enjoy the fun and fellowship of golfing with close (and new) friends, but also assist Warm Beach Camp in ministering to “at risk kids” who cannot afford to attend camp. We saw several hundred children and youth come to camp this summer because of the Kids 2 Camp scholarship program, and many of them made first time decisions to trust Christ as their Savior while at Camp. What a blessing!

Registration is $245.00 per person and includes lunch, two carts per foursome, eighteen holes of golf, dinner for you and your spouse, and best of all – the knowledge that a major portion of that fee will help bring kids to camp!

You still have time to sign up your favorite foursome as a team. If you don’t have a foursome, no problem! We will pair you up with some others who will need you! Not a great golfer? That’s OK! This is best ball and it encourages team effort and camaraderie. Don’t golf at all? Perhaps you could sponsor at team!

For more information call Norm Harshaw at (425) 232-3876 or go online to the tournament website. Come have a ball!

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
