The 10 Essentials

Thank You!

On May 21st we held the first annual Lost Ball Classic golf tournament at the Lost Tracks Golf Course. The event was sponsored by Les Schwab, AirLink and NorWest Realty to benefit the Deschutes County Search and Rescue Foundation. There was a full field, with 112 golfers participating in this event, and despite the weather, all participants said that it was one of the most fun tournaments that they have played in. Golf was followed by an evening of food provided by The Pour House, music by Tone Red and the Moon Mountain Ramblers, and a putting contest.  The day began with live music, beer from the Silver Moon Rover, and massages on the driving range, and ended with fireworks being launched over the 9th green as the sun was setting.
