SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – What a fantastic day on the fairway for the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 49th annual Hackers Golf Tournament held Thursday, July 11 at Crown Point Country Club! With our largest turnout in nearly two decades, we hit the course with 24 teams for a total of 96 players this year. The field was split into two divisions allowing for four first place winning teams:
- Flight A: Gross – Jay Clapperton, Travis White, Jordan Clapperton, Dean Bactad; Net – Cas Krupinsky, Jake Loiko, Tom Tourville, Scott Pinkham
- Flight B: Gross – Justin Lewis, Matt Elsesser, Scott Peterson, Daniel Tricarico; Net – Tony Moriglioni, Bay Wheeler, Craig Fairbank, Shane Mas
A big thank you to Kelley Sales & Service, our hole-in-one sponsor – alas, nobody sank a hole-in-one on the 18th hole to win a car this year, but everyone had a lot of fun trying. Thanks to Richard and Carolyn Lane for sponsoring the putting contest – Kelen Beardsley came within mere inches of winning the big bucks. Thanks also to our banquet sponsor, Mascoma Bank; our scorecard sponsor, Rewind 106.5 WCFR; our cart sponsor, Springfield Housing Authority; and our sponsor at the turn, H&R Block. And much appreciation to our player gift sponsors, Claremont Savings Bank and Trout River Brewery.
