Despite COVID-19 accommodations, 55 golfers enjoyed great weather, 18 holes of golf, and a large number of prizes. The annual event is the only fundraiser event hosted by the nonprofit foundation that provides grant money to teachers in the Sierra-Plumas Joint Unified School District—giving school children the opportunity to experience the arts, state-of-the-art technology, and new music and science programs. This year’s smaller tournament brought mixed and men-only teams, thus awards went to the top three teams overall.
Winners were as follows:
1st Place: Trevor Womack, Tyler Long, Nick Rametta, Marquis Onorato
2nd Place: Tim Lysen, Leif Lysen, Nick Alexander, Bill Spalleta
3rd Place: Craig Sheridan, Todd Baker, Matt Sheridan, Dave Sheridan
