We had a total of 49 entrants for Icebowl Krazy Sries #2, Saturday 1/29/11 at Harbin Park in Fairfield, Ohio. There were 12 Open, 5 Pro Masters/Grandmasters, 6 Advanced, 6 Advanced Masters/Grandmasters, 19 Recreational and 1 Recreational Woman. We played 2 rounds of 18 on the regular course.
There were several inches of snow on the ground at the beginning of the day, but thanks to Cyrus Fuhrman, we had clean tees. We all really appreciated that. It was cold to start the morning, around 20 degrees and got up to around 39 later in the day, with much of the snow melting. The wind kept it cold the second round however. I'd also like to thank Shaun Marsh for spotting all day on hole 18.
Lance Fair won the Open Divsion by shooting a 41 (-13) the 2nd round to come from behind and take home the win. He seems to like to that as he came from behind in the Boone Icebowl to force a throw-off with eventual winner, Drew Miller.
Jeff Eades took home another win in the Pro Masters/GM division, while Mike Naegele and Brian Trapp won the Advanced and Recreational divisions, respectively. Patty Francis won the Recreational Women's division.
There was a really tight finish in the Advanced Masters/Grandmasters division with Ron Godbey and Ty Connley tied at the end of two rounds with Ron taking home the first place prize winning a 3-hole throw-off. They are also neck and neck for the series title also.
There were 2 aces on the day, Cyrus Fuhrman aced hole 14 and Kevin Hall aced hole 9. Only Cyrus was in the Ace Pot.
I'd like to thank a couple of anonymous donors for their extremely thoughtful giving to our fundraising charity, Fairhaven Rescue Mission. With our pledge dollars from the club and an anonymous donor, we have raised another $194. which brings our current total fundraising amount to $1481. We have set a goal of $2500 for this year.
Adam Jones was on hand to collect clothing from many participants. Thanks to Adam and to those who brought the clothes.
The Icebowl Krazy Series finale is at Lincoln Ridge/Banklick on 2/12/11.
