Paws Open Golf Outing - September 2008

Our first annual Paws Open golf outing was held at The Links at Ireland Grove in Bloomington. This event featured a shotgun start for play on the course. A scramble format was used, and positions were available for a maximum of 44. After play on the course there were awards, door prizes, and a box meal provided.
