Inaugural golf tournament benefits youth hockey program


— The team of Curt Weiss, Steve Dawes, John Kerst and Bob Milne won the first ever Steamboat Braves Midget Invitational, which was held at the Haymaker golf course on Sept 30.

Teams paid 100 per player to compete in the event, but the money will go to a good cause.

Proceeds from the event will be given to a midget hockey player in the form of a $1,000 yearly scholarship. The player must be a senior.

The group will select a player who displays leadership, community involvement as well as academic success in the classroom.

Mike DeGroff said this year's event was a success and the group will present a scholarship to a graduating senior next spring.

The event was a two-man best ball from a team of four players. The first through third place teams all received trophies. There named were also engraved on traveling trophies which will be displayed at the ice arena.
