Relay for Life Wrap Up - May 1st, 2011

The 2nd Annual "Wipe Out Cancer" Relay for Life tournament was another hit on Ozark's Grubaugh Park! Sixty-one players turned out to show their support for the incredible cause that the Relay for Life supports, Cancer Awareness. With the Wipe Out Cancer Team and the Disc Golf Monkey joining forces for the 2nd straight year, the players anticipated more, and they were not disappointed!

The weather was near perfect with temps in the 70's, winds fairly mild, and literally only a couple of drops of percipitation. With mulligans being used (as a way to raise money) the scores were very low in all divisions. This year's winners included:
Sabrina Backlin 112 Women
Austin Smith 107 Junior
Shawn Collins 87 Recreational
Philip Backlin 83 Intermediate (score would have won Advanced and finished 2nd in Open...Wowza Move Up)
Frank "The Tank" Hebert 85 Advanced
Russ Burns 79 Open
Congratulations to all the winners of this year's event! For a full look at the results, click on the Tournament Tab and scroll down until you see the Relay fo Life Results.

The Ring of Fire and the Raffle were nothing short of mind boggling. There were so many things given away this year courtesy of our awesome sponsors! The Raffle raised $425 in which everyone was hoping to hear the right # when the Custom Relay for Life Monkey Trap was offered up. After a long delay, Brad Hilton from Lebanon, MO was victorious taking home the much talked about Blaze Illusion Purple Top Monkey Trap! Congratulations Brad and I know it is right next to your bed as I am typing this up!

Although not official yet, I am estimating that near $1,000 was raised for this year's Relay for Life event. Check back and I will update this paragraph when I hear the final tally from the Wipe Out Cancer Team. Great job!

Like always, Thank You all who came out and supported this great cause and supporting the Disc Golf Monkey. I am fortunate and blessed to have been a part of this tournament. Thank you Wipe Out Cancer Team. See you all next time!
