The winning team included Byron Loomis, Dick Jordan, Judy Christiansen and Terry Estes.

The morning of Saturday, July 29, started out a little on the foggy side at the Birch Ridge Golf Course, but by afternoon it was a day of sunny skies and smiling faces. In all, more than 60 golfers from Seward, elsewhere on the Kenai Peninsula, and Anchorage participated in the 14th annual Seward Booster Club Golf Tournament to raise funds for Seward High School's athletic programs. Altogether, they raised nearly $4,000 for the Seahawks.

Beating out 15 other teams to take first place were Byron Loomis, Dick Jordan, Judy Christiansen and Terry Estes. The Longest Drive contest winners were Norm Regis and Willow Hetrick Price. The Closest to the Pin winners were Lisa Parker and Dick Jordan.

"Thank you to all the golfers for coming out and supporting SHS's student athletes," said Skip Reierson.

Helping make this year's tournament such a success were the sponsors, most of whom have been with the event for many years. New this year were Fifth Avenue Fitness and Dr. Michael Moriarty, DDS. An anonymous donor sponsored a hole, and other sponsors included Alaska SeaLife Center, Alaska Shop, Breeze Inn, Danlin Construction/ClerkWorksAK, Edward Jones Investments, Kenai Fjords Tours, Major Marine Tours, Odom Corporation, Petro Marine Services, Resurrection Roadhouse/Windsong Lodge, Salmon Bake, Seward Properties, Seward Real Estate, Spenard Builders Supply, TelAlaska and Zudy's.

Adding to the fun of the tournament were the picnic lunch and awards that followed the play.

"Thank you to those who donated the food," said Reierson, noting that items for the picnic were provided by The Inn at Tern Lake, Summit Lake Lodge, Cindy Ecklund, Terry Estes, Martha Fleming, Rose Hetrick, Mary Beth Koster, Kim Reierson, Maya Moriarty and Ariel Sievert. Special thanks, he said, should also be extended to Norm Regis for cooking, Shelly Shank for setting up lunch and Janessa Anderson and Marci LeMay for driving the beverage cart, and to the Birch Ridge Golf course for hosting the event.
