                Twelve teams played in the fifth annual Cass County Friends of Youth Benefit Golf Tournament Sun., June 11, at Tianna Country Club at Walker.
                The winning foursome in the scramble tourney included Joe Roberts, Jim Zierden, Gary “D” (no last name given) and Gene Maxwell. The team shot a nine under par in the 18-hole tournament which raises funds to defray expenses for Cass County youth exhibiting at the State Fair. Their score broke a tie with the Meier-Peterson team by besting that foursome on the course’s toughest hole, No. 5.
                The second place team was composed of Dan Meier, Cass County Commissioner Jeff Peterson, Tony Peterson and Mark Peterson. Winning third was the foursome of Chris Barchus, John Zaffke, Conrad Bristow and Mark Hellen.
                All three winning teams donated their total cash prizes of $600 back to the benefit fund. A 13th team opted out of play when the start of the tournament was delayed two hours by rain.
                Closest-to-pin shots were won by Jim Bartholmay, Gerard Suomalainen and John Freeman. Winners of the longest putts sunk were Tony Peterson and Mike Swerdfiger.
                A number of Cass and Hubbard County organizations, businesses and individuals, including veterans organizations, sponsored teams, purchased hole sponsorships and donated cash prizes and services to the tournament and the scholarship fund. The tournament concluded with a complimentary luncheon provided by sponsors and presentation of awards at Tianna. Scholarship award totals will be announced when the number of eligible State Fair entrants is determined.
                Scholarship fund organizers came up with the idea of the fundraiser five years ago when they were concerned that many Cass County youth winning awards at the county fair level were unable to afford the expenses associated with the trip to St. Paul to exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair. Barb Frederick and Sue Elyea of Backus came up with the idea and enlisted Sue’s husband, Leo, an avid golfer, to organize the golf tournament and assist with associated fund raising efforts.
                The scholarships help pay for travel, lodging, meals and entry fees for a large variety of exhibits, including, for example, photography, computer science, entomology, geology, carpentry, food and animals, including livestock. Examples of some of the exhibiting costs include a $145 fair fee assessed for non-livestock events; $225.50 for livestock competition, plus an added $30 for showing beef cattle; $65 for showing horses and $8 for each class entered.
                Last year $4,085 was awarded to 27 county 4-Hers to help defray their expenses.
