Interclub Charity Tournament  title

April 21-22, 2012

The First Annual Callier Springs Country Club & BEAA Country Club Charity Challenge Match held April 21-22 was a huge success. However, none of the players involved won a thing. Instead, they gave.

Joedy McGraw, Ann Perry,  & Grant MillerWith a portion of each player’s entry fee to be given a local charity, a total of $370 plus food items was raised and donated to The Evening Food Pantry, and thankfully accepted by volunteer Ann Perry.

The Evening Food Pantry operates out of Garden Lakes Baptist Church in conjunction with West Minster Presbyterian. There, under the supervision of Willie and Janice Nelson, food is supplied to families in need in the Rome area.

The monetary donation will allow the Ministry to purchase more than 2,300 lbs. of food which will be distributed to families in our community who obtain a referral letter from their church.

Thanks to all the participants and volunteers and plans are already being made for the next Charity Challenge Match.

When it was all over Sunday afternoon, BEAA took home the win 33-23.

Saturday's play at Callier Springs saw the home team go up early with a 5-2 lead after the first matches were complete. However, after the 2nd and 3rd round matches were finished, BEAA owned a slim 15­13 lead.

Much like the day before, Sunday's play at BEAA saw most of the matches go down to the last hole and last stroke to decide the winner. BEAA came out strong to win the first round matches 5-2 and took an overall lead of 20-15. The team from BEAA then won the second round 5-2 for a 25-17 lead going in to the final round. With the team from Callier Springs still in it, BEAA was able to hold off the comeback bid to win the individual matches 8-6 and claim the overall win 33-23.
