Nocona Lions Club Tournament a Success
The Nocona Lions Club held their 22nd annual golf tournament on Saturday, October 7. Last year
was the second year for a twi-night event, with the first nine holes being played in the afternoon sun,
and the second nine holes played after dinner with lighted balls in the nighttime dark. The event was
such a great success that several teams decided on their own to play a third set after the tournament.
This year the club worked on how to improve on last year's format, and tournament coordinator
Phil Staley suggested a ball drop for a Traeger grill. The club sold several hundred tickets, and the
numbered balls were dropped at 4:00 pm by Lion Renee Lewis from a helicopter donated by Oscar
Aerial approximately 250 feet above a pin. Lucky winner Mike Brown purchased the ticket for ball
number 260 that landed closest to the pin, winning the Traeger Elite 220 grill, sold to the club by Ace
Hardware at cost.
Twelve teams participated this year, teeing off at 5:00 pm. After a dinner of chicken spaghetti,
salad, and dessert, the golfers continued in the dark, almost finishing before the nearly full moon
arose. The first-place winners for the first flight were Mitch Atteberry and Jody Teague. Second-place
winners were Brad Slade and Joe Leeper. In the second flight, first-place winners were Jim Mahaffey
and Walter Hooper. Second-place winners were Mike Brown and June Brown. Third flight first
place winners were Wesley Newland and Clint Pigg. Second place winners were Ben Kabisch and
Steve Kabisch. Congratulations to all the winners and those who had a lot of fun on a wonderful day.
Thanks to all who supported the tournament, especially the sponsors and participants this year. Please
plan to play next year and support the Lions Club programs including fireworks, hearing, sight, and
vaccination programs, and summer camps including the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville and our own
Chief Peta Playground at the Enid Justin Park supported by the Nocona Lions Club.
