Thank you, John and Nena Niemi for co-chairing this last tournament at Sycuan. A lot of work goes into making the tournaments happen, and we are thankful for your participation!
Thanks also to Steve Burnett who ran the putting competition, and to Kim and Tish Custer who added a bit of evening excitement with their "putt in the dark" contest which was won by Gary Murdoch. Cheryl Christensen and Barbara Belknap were out on the course snapping photos of the golfers and surroundings, and we thank you two for capturing the good times!
