South Ogden Days- Day 1

Let's try a little running diary for South Ogden Days. Time will get a little tight by the end of the week, but I think we can get this done.

I'll try to bring the flavor of what a full week of South Ogden Days is like.

Monday, June 23rd- Golf Tournament

The golf tournament was held at Schneiter's Riverside Golf Course with a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start. We had 23 teams this year which is a record for participation in the tournament. We had beautiful weather for the tournament. I think in the five years we've had this tournament we've always had good weather.

The format is a four person scramble. The winning score was -16 under par (55) on the par 71 course. For those non-golfers that's a pretty good score for a scramble tournament.

A special thanks to Waste Management of Utah for sponsoring our golf event. Their sponsorship money helps make South Ogden Days a better event each year.

On a personal note: My team shot a -16 under par as well, but we lost on the tiebreaker. I guess we'll have to get them next year. Ultimately it's a fun time and it's a great way to start South Ogden Days.

Tomorrow's Report: Monday Night Movie at the Park

In case you're thinking of attending the movie, it is held at Friendship Park. We'll be starting around 8:00 p.m. to get people situated, but the movie won't start till dusk. Tonight's movie is "August Rush".

We'll have Dominos Pizza on hand selling pizza as well as regular movie stand-by's like popcorn, candy, and drinks available for purchase. The weather should be wonderful tonight as well so come and join us for a relaxing night in the park.
