This is my catch-up week for activities which were, and were not, played in the last two weeks, so here we go.
First, the Golfing for Kids with Disabilities Tournament, which was scheduled for May 1 at Hillcrest Golf Club, had to
be canceled as they did not meet the minimum number of golfers to make it a viable event, so they have rescheduled this
tournament for the fall. You still can submit your silent bid to tournament officials for a golf outing at the Glacier
Club by calling 385-3450.
They did have a field of 35 golfers for the inaugural Fort Lewis College Football Touchdown Club Golf Scramble on May
1. The winning team, with a score of 61, was Thad Trujillo, Seb Trujillo and Kelly Higgins. Second place went to the
team of Reed Duval, Adam Sandress and Austin Smith with a score of 62. Longest Drive awards went to Lynn Andrews and
Brad Wilson. The longest putt award went to Sandress, while closest to the pin went to Jim Kindgrerr.
Forty-four teams competed in the Olde Tymers Café-2 Person Scramble on Saturday and Sunday at Hillcrest, and first
place in the Championship Flight went to the team of Gavin and Justin Lyons with a low gross score of 125. Kermitt
Barrett teamed with Bill Burns to finish second gross with a score of 128. Low net went to Michael Hannigan and John
Casey with a score of 125, while Mick McDermott and Russ Pool tied Mike Albert and John Siegrist with 129s.
Low gross in the First Flight went to Terrell Strauss and Bret Jameson with a score of 136. Bryce and Veryl Peery
teamed to take second gross with a score of 141. Low net went to Jerry Vandiver and Aimee Fladt at 127, while Russ
Jones and Brian Smith came in second net at 129.
Second Flight low gross honors went to Phil Gunn and Eli Miranda at 139, while LeRoy Flynn teamed with Randy Smith for
second gross at 145. Low net, with a 127, went to Lenny Papineau and Ken Wolke. Rick Wright and Ken Ragsdell tied Russ
Monell and Robert Therrell for second net at 133.
Third Flight low gross honors went to David and J.B. Gore with a score of 146. Mary Kay Aigner teamed with Pan Leisle
for second gross at 150.
A big reminder: There still is room for entries, both amateur and professional, for the Coca-Cola of Durango/Navajo
Trail Open, which comes up in June. Call the HGC at 247-1499 to get your name on the list.
