Thanks goes out to the GCU Home Office for the Fraternal Grant for door prizes, GCU bags with sunscreen, hand sanitizer and the preparation of entry forms. Thanks also to the hole sponsors and prize donors and all the participants. A special thank you to Pot-of-Gold and Hole-in-One verifier, Janice Dragan, who gave up her Saturday to sit on Hole 17.
