July 25 was a beautiful day to be on the golf course as 35 golfers participated in the Chapter Championship at Shale Creek Golf Club. Finally, after all the rain we have experienced this year, there was “roll” on the golf course. A record six teams completed for one spot in the Scramble competition, so that part of the competition was hotly contested. Good food and fun was had by all at the 19th hole. The first place gross, first place net winners and first place scramble team will advance to the Sectional Tournament in Fort Wayne, IN on August 30th.
