10th Annual Golf Tournament

The 10th annual golf tournament for the SRTCC was held on Sept.13 at Granite Ridge Golf Course. The weather was beautiful, the best we have had over the 10 years. There was 89 golfers and 110 for dinner. Everyone had a great time. A special thanks to everyone who helped to make this event a huge success: those who sponsored holes, who sponsored tables, who donated to the silent auction and who golfed. Thanks to all who volunteered their time during the day. The dinner by Albatross was excellent as usual.
