Brian will play in the tournament again this year, and all local golfers and businesses are encouraged to participate. All proceeds will go towards the March of Dimes. With the tournament being played on the day of Veteran’s Day observance, this should also be an appealing tournament to those golfers who have the day off from work.

Anyone interested in playing should contact Dan Smith at 566-2821 or 566-4031.
