Calcutta Tourney & Adams Family Donations

By September 13, 2016 January 9th, 2022 No Comments

The Club Calcutta tournament was held on Saturday, September 10, at Pine Nursery Park.  96 players were divided into 48 pairings and 16 teams in two 8 team groups.  Each team played 7 matches, and the leading points teams from each group played off for the championship.

It was a blast!  At the dinner event on Friday, September 9, pairs and teams were auctioned off to the highest bidder. The bids were held as prize money to be returned to the highest scoring pairs and teams.  Most of the winners donated their winnings to the Adams family fund, and the donations were over $4,000.00.  Added in were an additional $1500. donation from the Club, a matching $1500. donation from Big Country RV, and over $3,000. in general donations from Club members and the community to raise over $10,000.00 for the Adams family.

Don and Barbara Adams returned to their home in Idaho on Monday in a motorhome donated for the trip by Big Country RV and piloted by Lee and Verna Moore.
