Swingin' Safari - Golf for a Purpose

by Roy Kinji, Marketing Director

The weather was perfect last Thursday, which was a big change from last year's sustained winds and the year before when is was 100 degrees and the A/C was not working. Swingin' Safari is our annual golf tournament fundraiser at Teal Bend Golf Course. For all those golfers who may not have been having their best round, Pyramid Brewery made sure it was a great day for all.

Del Rogers came out to the course and did two live newscasts at noon and again at 6 pm. We found out he is actually pretty afraid of snakes. Our Pacific gopher snake wiggled his way out of his gate right in the middle of the live broadcast and Del was startled to see him slithering across the grass. The Zoo keeper set him back in the gate and all was fine after that.

The winning foursome was Kevin Stillman, Andy Heekin, Dennis Nunes, Matt Brooks. The winner of the putting contest and longest drive was Tracy Nichols, and this was her last tournament before going pro and joining the Canadian LPGA. All the golfers tried their shot at the hole-in-one Honda prize, but there where no winners this time.

The raffle and auction are the great conclusion to a fun day. Our MC, Steve Bernstein got so excited he added an item at the last minute - his barbershop quartet singing at your home or party.

Thank you to all our golfers and sponsors this year!
