The Selkirk Golf & Country Club will be seeing plenty of pink in the coming weeks as the Boobies Rule Golf Tournament is just around the corner.
 

Ted Wur has been giving back to the community through the annual Boobies Rule Golf Tournament and the eighth annual event is set for June 2.
 

Wur, who is the chairperson of the golf tournament, has taken the slogan Boobies Rule and run with it, as he continues to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
 

“To me it’s just another piece of the puzzle. I know there are lots of charity groups that go towards cancer because there are so many variations of cancer.  This is just one small portion of it” Wur said. “It kind of touches home.”
 

The tournament held at the Selkirk Golf and Country Club began seven years ago, and since then has generated close to $60,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
 

This year’s tournament takes place June 2 with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.
 

Before teeing off, participants are welcome to come down early to enjoy a pancake breakfast.
 

“I just hope that Mother Nature is on my side,” he said.
 

Wur is excited about this year’s tournament, as there are a number of new volunteers involved with the event.
 

“Volunteers have surpassed the goal that I had from last year,” he said. “That’ll help out a lot.”
 

According to Wur, he is hoping to have 36 teams participate and to date 25 teams have registered.
 

Although this year’s event hasn’t taken place, he’s already looking ahead to the 2019 event
 

“I try to change things up and see what works... I always try to keep people guessing what’s going to happen next year,” Wur added. “When it comes to tournaments, what makes it different at your tournament compared to someone elses’.”
