DAVID PECK The team of Tyler Angell, Kade Baxendale and Kevin Winterholler captured the Pioneer Day Golf Tournament at the Foster Gulch Golf Course Fri- day. Placing second in the best-ball tournament was the trio of Randy Wacker, Eric Honeyman and Cleve Wilson, while the team of Jake Bischoff, Jay Bischoff and TJ Green placed third. The trio of Lar- ry Woodington, Charlie Cooley and Pat Croft fin- ished fourth. Flag prizes were won by Eric Honeyman, Dan Wolvington, TJ Green, Tyler Angell, Cameron Frates, Lynette Frost, Peggy Denzin, Jay Bischoff, Bruce Wolsey, Ryan Nicholls, Charlie Cooley and Cleve Wilson. Deuces were earned by the Angell]Baxendale/ Winterholler team, the Wacker/Honeyman/Wilson team and the team of Cameron Frates, Peggy Den- zin and Lynette Frost. Randy Wacker takes a swing during the Cowley Pioneer Day Golf Tournament on Friday held at Foster Gulch Golf Course in Lovell. PATti CARPENTER The team of Kirk Morgan and Randy Wack- er captured top honors at the sixth annual Pitch and Putt event Saturday at the Foster Gulch Golf Course. The fundraiser for Northwest College schol- arships includes 18holes of golf and 40 horse- shoes. Placing second was the team of Mike Kitch- en and Mike McCollam, followed by the duo of Jim Pollack and George Preis and the team of Gene Shuler and Jerald Preis. Top golfers were Wacker (75) and Pat Par- mer (87), while the top horseshoe pitchers were Pat Bacus (52) and Pat Parmer (43). There were 24 entries for the tournament. This is the fifth year the event has been held in Lovell after a year in Powell, organizer Rick Parmer said. Funds are gathered from individ- ual and business sponsors in Big Horn and Park counties. The money raised goes to NWC to sup- port scholarships for agriculture students, two scholarships each for students from Big Horn and Park counties each year. The golf and horseshoe tournament is the final event in the fundraising chain annually, Parmer said. Through silent auctions at the tournament and chipping contest, organizers make nearly enough money for an additional scholarship each year. "We have been lucky in the past years to have enough money that funds can be placed in an escrow account with the college for scholar- ships in the future," Parmer said. "Some of the money in the account has qualified for match- ing funds from the State of Wyoming, which, of course, helps the overall scholarship picture a great deal." DAVID PECK George Preis lets a shoe fly at the stake. Preis played at both horseshoe competitions Saturday, Pitch Putt at Foster Gulch Golf Course and the Cowley Pioneer Day horseshoe tournament.
