Season Ending MGA dogfight


We had 48 members to play in our year end MGA dogfight. The weather cooperated and we had a really nice December day to play.

The MGA provided a breakfast buffet before the MGA meeting and dogfight. The meeting brought about a couple of proposed rule changes and two new persons on the tournament committee. Max Whitfield and Bobby Denty were the members added.

The winners in the dogfight were as follows. 1st place went to Tony Evans. Tony was 6 points above his quota. 2nd place went to Moses Ngirailab at +5. There was a tie for 3rd place all at +4. They were Jimmy Brasher, David Mills, Steven Powell and Eric Smith. Cory Baird and Jim Gorman finished at +3 each to get in the pay back. Finishing out the pay back was Ray Ferguson, Terry Pruet, Brian Galloway, Harry Gaither and Jim Brown all finishing +2 above their quota.

We had a closest to the pin on all four par 3s. Andy Payant was closest on #4 (1’6”), Moses on #8 (8ft), Jeff Ingram on #14 (5”8”) and Terry Brown on #17 (1” 7”).

The top six dogfight finishers advanced to the $1000.00 ($500 cash/$500 Charity) shoot out that took place exclusively on hole #18. Two were eliminated during the 1st two rounds and it came down to Moses and Steven Powell. Moses outlasted Steven after a couple of rounds to take the 1st place prize in the shoot out.

This dogfight and shootout paid out a total of $1960.00. That is a very impressive pay back for a $20 entry fee. The only way we can continue this is through each of you participating in our regular dogfights whenever you have an opportunity. Two dollars from each dogfight participant goes to the MGA. This amount along with the $25.00 annual dues is how we hold these events as well as make contributions to local charities.

Congratulations to all the prize winners and thanks to all the 48 members that participated. A special thanks to the staff here at Alpine for their effort to assure that this event was enjoyed by all that participated.
