TCT’s Successful 36th Annual Tournament

What a great day we had out at North Shore this year for our Annual Hi Jinks scholarship golf tournament! The skies were clear, the weather was perfect and the golfers were primed for a good day on the course!

We had more sponsors out on the course than ever before. A big thank you to Mckinney Trailer Rentals, Gravity Payments, Jon Bye & Associates, The Tacoma Rainiers, NP Information Systems/Vernon Company (terrific bratwurst), PetroCard, and Shippers Products for spending their day with us. Thanks to I’m In Stitches for sponsoring the putting contest and donating a golf bag to our winner Pete Bush! Thanks to American Corporate Security for the team photos. And who can forget that fun bunch at the Money shot hole #4 Leon Knopp, Norma Dompier and Sally Jolicoeur? They raised an additional $595.00 for the scholarship fund. Thanks to all of you who played the game and to those of you who won and donated your money back. Very much appreciated!
