    Juneau, Alaska - El Sombrero won the men’s division and Too Tall Tees the women’s division of the 8th Annual Juneau Chamber Golf Classic, July 30th at the Juneau Golf Course.

      In a press release from the Juneau Chamber it was noted the day was grey and chilly but even with cloudy skies a great time was had by all 19 teams that came out for the event.

      Sponsored by the Juneau Radio Center, prizes were awarded on every hole, including three hole-in-one chances for a Subaru Solterra, five thousand dollars, and “Bullwinkle’s Pizza for a Year.” The hole-in-ones were not achieved.

      First place men’s division winners El Sombrero were comprised of Ryan Fagerstrom, CJ Keys, Bryan Ryder and Blake Galvin and first place women’s division winners Too Tall Tees featured Joann Lott, Aimee Olejasz, Darla Madden and Stacie Kraly.

      A tie-breaker was held during the weekly Chamber Luncheon on August 11 to sort out second place in the men’s division.

      Second place was earned by Shattuck And Grummett featuring Jack Grummet, John Grummet, Joel Bjerkeset and Eric Garcia.

      Third place went to Jerry’s Meats featuring Scotty Perkins, Dave Downey, Billy Cameron and Barry Brokken.

      The Chamber’s “Hole 10 Chip Challenge” was sponsored by Alaska Airlines. The chipping contest had lots of targets and prizes that we donated by local businesses, while Hole 10 offered a chance to win two First Class tickets on Alaska Airlines for a hole-in-one, or 50,000 Miles for “Closest to the Pin.”  There were no hole-in-one winner but an undisclosed chipper won the 50,000 Alaska air miles donated by Valley Paint Center.

       The Juneau Chamber wishes to thank the many businesses that donated to the event and those that came out to the course to help with the tournament, play a round of golf and enjoy the day.
