Perfect golf weather enjoyed

Thirty-one New Horizons members came on Monday morning, Sept. 16, to play in their weekly golf scramble. The weather was perfect, probably one of the better days of the season.

Taking top honours, with a 37, was the threesome of Norm Soiseth, Katherine Coats and Merv Zulynik. Three teams tied for second, with identical scores of 38, requiring a countback, leaving the foursome of Harry Zamonsky, Allie Raycraft, Dale Cain and Nester Brunwald to claim second place. Bringing up the rear and claiming the consolation was the team of Dave Page, Dexter Van Dyke, Ken Holliday and Dick Blom. Diana Griffiths won closest to the pin on number eight, while Glenn Hunter won the Co-op Car Wash for making the longest Putt on number nine.
