The team of Mike Riddle, Drew Reynolds, Randy Ruggles and Randy Eberle were the winners of the event with a score of 57.  A close second was the Genoa Bank team of Rich Hillman, Luke Sutter, Ben Sutter and Kevin Gladden with a score of 60.  Port Clinton Ford underwrote the Super Ticket portion of the day including two 3-day 2-night vacations awarded to Mike Riddle and John Deneau. A favorite component of the course this year included a special opportunity for male golfers to shoot from the women’s tee while donning a skirt and bonnet.
