The 2017 GTA Interleague, an annual golf competition among several Filipino-Canadian golf clubs in the Greater Toronto area, will be hosted by the Talamak Golf in June next year.

Details of the event were discussed during a recent gathering of the officers of Talamak while celebrating the 54th birthday Raffy Policarpio, a prominent club member and principal sponsor. Over an abundance of food and drinks, the group agreed to hold this prestigious tournament at the Remington Parkview golf course.

Participating clubs, aside from the Talamak group, are Philcan, Sierra, BGAT and SOGA golf associations.  Other interested clubs from Niagara Falls and Windsor areas will likewise be invited.

The birthday celebrant, speaking in behalf of LBC Express Cargo as its Country Head, reiterated his company’s continuing support of Talamak’s involvement in the sports-development and civic initiatives in the community. 

As well, LBC will spearhead a campaign to collaborate with the other sports associations, not only in growing their respective sports like golf, badminton and table tennis, but also in trying to raise much needed funds for ANCOP, a charitable organization with established credentials in helping the poor and the needy people of the Philippines.

Present during the pre-GTA Interleague meeting and birthday celebration were many of the Talamak leadership like club founder Charlie Schlobohm, Chito Yorro, Chairman and Renato Bautista, Chief Operating Officer.  Games and Membership committee chairs and members, such as Aldrin Balbas, Rene Nacin, Billy Salonga were likewise represented.
