The support we have received from our community and community involvement on the day of the tournament was second to none. The weather was perfect and the food, donated from several local establishments, was complimented and very delicious. The Pondera Golf Club has been awesome to work with—big kudos to Brianne Aakre, Scott Ardvidson and the entire board. We truly cannot thank our sponsors, teams and the Pondera Golf Course enough.
