Grand Prix Individual and Team Champions Named

Grand Prix award to Barkely Edwards
   The Grand Prix winners were awarded prizes at the Fish Fry held after the Morris Williams Select Shot Tournament on Tuesday. Barkley Edwards and Alton Stewart won the Team Championship and $50 each for their pro shop credit. They also had their names installed on the Grand Prix plaque that will hang in the hallway of the Lions Course pro shop.
     Jerry Horton also had his name added to the plaque for winning the Individual Championship. He earned $50 of credit as well for his season-long effort. Jim Milan won $25 for his second place finish in the individual race with Don Visness picking up the $15 for third place. Paul Redden was the fourth place finisher picking up $10 in the process.
    Following Edwards and Stewart in the team championship was Don Greenway and Victor Edwards who pocketed $25 each for their second place finish. Vic Loar and Curtis Higgs fought to a third place finish and $15 while Jim Millan, a double winner, and Lee Lambert took fourth and added $10 to their city bank account.
    The 2019 Grand Prix started with Tuesday's select shot tournament. All players will again start with zero points and the race continues from the Tuesday tournament through the rest of 2018 (November and December) and end the week before 2019 Annual BBQ (Fish Fry).
     Due to the need for more individual scores in the individual championship race (the points were approximately twice as much as in the team race), the 2019 schedule will be using some team events as individual tournaments as well. For example, the team event, 2-person total net, will be used as a team and as an individual Grand Prix event. Both the 2 of 4-person total net (NEW) and the 3 of 4-person total net, which have not been Grand Prix events in the past, will now be counted as individual Grand Prix events.
