Plans for Oilmen's Golf Tournament remain up in the air

There will be no Oilmen's Golf Tournament in June for the second straight year. After cancelling the 2020 tournament, the Fort St. John Petroleum Association hoped to hold this year's tournament June 5 to 8.

There will be no Oilmen's Golf Tournament in June for the second straight year. After cancelling the 2020 tournament, the Fort St. John Petroleum Association hoped to hold this year's tournament June 5 to 8. However, with the current public health restrictions in place, golf tournaments aren't allowed to take place. 

"We're hoping to maybe have one in the fall or as soon as it opens up. Hopefully we're at least in the clear for next year," said Dan Bonin, chairman of the Oilmen's Golf Tournament. 

The next Oilmen's Golf Tournament will be the 58th edition of the longtime event. 2022 would have been in line for the tournament's 60th anniversary. However, that special celebration keeps getting pushed further away. 

Currently, there are no solid plans to host Oilmen's events this year, though the association is hopeful the trapshoot can go ahead. The 2020 Oilmen's Trapshoot was the lone Oilmen's event to take place during the pandemic.
