Hey, Juneau Golfers ...
So there we were, all happy and everything that we were in the warm sunshine! It was, after all, beautiful Redmond, Oregon, not rainy Juneau Alaska. However, it didn't last long ... raingear, umbrellas for the golf clubs, layers upon layers of clothes, warm hats and gloves ... those were the choices for Juneau's golfers in the 2015 Fall Memorial Tournament at Eagle Crest Golf Resort. However, it didn't dampen the spirits of these true Alaska golfers ... the games went on as scheduled with much merriment in between games! Here's a recap of the winners:

Once again, a big huge thank you to Steve and Kris Burnett, chairs of this tournament. They did an outstanding job and have agreed to chair the next fall tournament in 2016! Another big huge thank you goes to Candy Behrends who faithfully appeared each day, even in the rain, to capture the good and sometimes the bad (and funny) poses that our golfers did for her. I have added this wonderful collection of photos to the Flickr site, and you can view them here:
