The foursome consisted of Dave Mendenhall, Dean Tuell, Larry Devol, and Doug Williams. The winners shot a blazing 16 under par. The runner-up of the first flight was the team of Chris Byers, Kent Yoho, and Curtis Heintzman, and Jim Surface.

The second flight winner was Slay Trucking Company’s team of Pat Knowlton, Dick Weekley, Josh Mace, and Chris Poe, and the runner-up was the team of Randy Rutherford, Paul Howlett, Dana Johnson, and Rodney Derringer. Both flight winners donated their winnings to the VFW Scholarship Fund.
