The Fillmore High School Sports Hall of Fame held their 2nd Annual Golf Tournament on February 22 at Elkins Ranch in Fillmore. The weather was beautiful and the golfers all had a great time this year, and oh yeah, the Hall of Fame had a huge fundraiser at the same time.
The folks at Elkins Ranch did a great job as host to the tournament. The Bar B Q of tri-tip and all the fixins topped the evening off. The Hall of Fame would also like to thank the following sponsorships of the tournament that made the event such a big success; Harrison and Sons, Lexicon Consulting, One Call Logistics, William L. Morris, and Hall of Famer Kevin Gross. The Hall of Fame would like to say thank you to all the Tee Sponsors this year, and all the people and businesses who donated all the awesome door prizes we had this year.
What is a Hall of Fame Golf Tournament without Hall of Famers there? Well, we had a good share this year: Coach Bruce Dempsey, Mike Marostica, John Scoles, David Miller, Chip Bowlin, David Pillado, Kevin Gross, Jim Schleimer, Roger Palmer, Matt Dollar, Jamie Latshaw, Lynn Cole, Matt Mozley, Steve Hope, Steve Dann, and Chris Goodenough, all of them Fillmore High School Sports Hall of Famers.
The winner’s of this year’s 2nd Annual Golf Tournament were the team of Hall of Famers Steve Dann, and Chris Goodenough, along with Tom Dann, and Chap Morris; in 2nd was the team of Hall of Famers David Pillado, Chip Bowlin, David Miller, along with Josh Bond. In 3rd place was the team of Hall of Fame Coach Bruce Dempsey, along with Dan Young, Jerry Rich, and Don Gluyas. The winner of the closest to the pin prize was Don Gluyas, and the winner of the longest drive prize was Hall of Famer David Miller.
The great thing about the tournament is of course the money that the golfers bring in, but even more important is the fun that we all had. Some of the people live far away and do not get to see each other often enough. But when we all get together it is like we never skip a beat.
The Fillmore High School Sports Hall of Fame will be planning the 3rd Annual Golf Tournament for next year and we hope more people will come out and swing a club. It is also that time of year to nominate anyone you think should be inducted into The Fillmore High School Sports Hall of Fame. If you will please send a letter to The Fillmore High Sports Hall of Fame at P.O. Box 697 Fillmore Ca. 93016. Give us the name of the person along with their mailing address and phone number, we will send them a form to fill out. All forms need to be in the Hall of Fame by April 1st, 2013. The person needs to be out of school at least 10 years before they can be inducted into the Hall of Fame. So get us the information as soon as you can.
Thank you to all the Golfers, Tee Sponsors, Donators, the Tournament Sponsors, the Hall of Fame Committee, and to the Elkins Ranch Golf Course for all the time, money, and effort to make the 2nd Annual Fillmore High School Sports Hall of Fame Golf Tournament a big success. Fillmore people helping Fillmore people! That is why Fillmore is the Greatest town in America!
