The club members really stepped it up a notch to get the contest set up and run and packed up. Steve and Kathy Gammons really went above and beyond learning the scoring program, setting up the scoring tent, etc and doing all the work, plus creating the winners’ trophies!
Their son kept the event going by organizing the line retrieval system, then drove the cart and trained Wisdom, our other helper.
John took an amazing amount of great photos and worked his tail off from start to finish. Click on DerbySoar2016 to reach the link to all his photos.
