Lucas Adams' golf game hasn't improved much since last year's Young Life golf tournament, but he is much more experienced at running a fund-raising event.
This year, the Steamboat Springs Young Life director even has a new twist.
Action Motorsports is serving as a hole-in-one sponsor, donating a four-wheeler to any participant who can hole a tee shot at the Steamboat Sheraton Golf Course.
This year's Young Life golf tournament costs $125 a person and is being held Aug. 27 at the Sheraton Steamboat Golf Club.
Last year, more than 60 people took part in the 18-hole, shotgun-start tournament.
"After paying for everything, we walked away with $10,000," Adams said. "It all goes toward Young Life's budget."
And the mission of Young Life's staff and volunteer leaders is to develop positive relationships with the area's youths, "the platform for which they share Jesus Christ in a way that is relevant and meaningful to students," according to the registration flier.
During the year, leaders attend sporting events and other school functions. In addition, they host weekly meetings, as well as travel with youths to camps and other activities.
"I just took two kids on a sea kayaking trip to British Columbia," Adams said.
During the summer, Adams has hosted barbecues and ultimate Frisbee outings, all funded from the budget.
"As far as kids go, I've gotten good feedback that they love to have a positive place to go that is safe and is every week," Adams said.
Golf tournament fliers can be picked up at the Sheraton Golf Club. Registration forms also are hanging across town. Anyone wanting to return a form can mail it to Young Life at P.O. Box 775781, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477.
Adams encouraged people to sign up before the day of the event. Registration begins at 11 a.m. Aug. 27 at the Sheraton Golf Club and includes a barbecue. The tournament begins at 12:30 p.m.
Anyone with further questions can call Adams at 846-0697 or 871-4822.
