SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – What a fantastic day on the fairway for the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 50th Hackers Golf Tournament held on July 14, 2022 at Crown Point Country Club. After a two-year hiatus, we hit the course with 20 teams for a total of 80 players this year. A great time was had by all, and the weather was, thankfully, overall comfortable. There was a brief downpour during registration, but the rest of the day was gorgeous. The field was split into two divisions allowing for four first-place winning teams:
Flight A: Gross – Team, The Richards Group. Paul Kendall, Jeff Perkins, Kelen Beardsley, and Cole Lewis.
Net – Team, Ultimate Auto Body. Craig Streeter, Aaron, Streeter, Zack Kirkwood, and Randy Parker.
Flight B: Gross – Team, BeMobile. Stacey Tash, JP Laugelle, Brett Sorter, and Cliff Roberge.
Net – Team, Black River Produce. Justin Lewis, Cody Duckless, Kyle Price, and Jay Kerner.
A big thank you to Springfield Buick GMC Cadillac, our Hole-in-One Contest sponsor – alas, nobody sank a hole-in-one on the 18th hole to win a vehicle this year, but everyone had a lot of fun trying. Thanks to Jerry Farnum State Farm for sponsoring the Putting Contest – Elijah Daniels came close to winning the big bucks. A shout out and thanks also to our Banquet Sponsor – Mascoma Bank, our Scorecard Sponsor – WCFR Your Hometown Classic Hits, our Cart Sponsor – Springfield Housing Authority, and our Beer Cart Sponsor – Black River Coffee Bar.
