A great big THANK YOU! to all of the sponsors and participants in Nevada Outdoor School’s 1st Annual Winnemucca Fire and Ice Golf Scramble Fundraiser last Saturday, September 9th at the Winnemucca Golf Course. The day was full of beautiful weather, great golf shots, and lucky winners!
The theme for the event is “Fire and Ice” and we raffled off 4 firearms and 4 Cordova 48 Qt Coolers. The firearm winners were: Russ Mullins who won a Savage 17HMR rifle sponsored by NOS; Tim Roybal who won a Tristar Raptor Semi Auto 12 gauge shotgun sponsored by Stewart Title; Lee Bosch who won a Tristar Setter 28 gauge shotgun and Adua Boyle who won a Savage .22 WMR both guns sponsored by NOS.
The Cordova cooler winners were: Brandon Tangreen sponsored by Drake Rose & Associate; Cole Erquiaga sponsored by Carwil, Joey Dendary sponsored by Edward Jones – Walt Vetter and Chrissy Ingle Hunt sponsored by Stewart Title.
We also had a 3-night, 6 hunt Dove Hunting trip to Cordoba, Argentina for 4 people donated by Norte Hunters that was up for silent auction, and lucky winner Brandon Tangreen was the winning bid.
Twelve - 4 person scramble teams came out to support Nevada Outdoor School. Tied for 1st place with a score of 61 were the teams of Max Mavity, Rian DeLong, Goose Thurston and Maddux Nichols and Carl Rose, Scott Ashby, Craig Drake and Rodney Dimock. They all won $70 each to spend at the Winnemucca Golf Club House. Tied for 2nd place with a score of 66 were the teams of Louis Roman, Mitch Weber, Savannah Roman, and Emily Roman, and Stewart Title’s team of Tim Roybal, Mike Adams, Jared Wiss, and Steve Hunt. They each won $20 each in Golf Course Cash. We also presented prizes to the “most in need of improvement” to the Carwil team of Kandy Havens, Kona Jensen, Adam Dossey and Tyler Sabayan. They were gifted $200 in gift certificates to The Martin.
We added some fun to the tournament play with an on-course game for yardage advantages on hole #6 where participants were challenged with some NOS outdoor ethics education questions to spark conversation about safe and responsible outdoor recreation and exploration.
The winner of the ladies’ closest to the hole contest on #5 was Holly Gallian and she was awarded with a trip to Las Vegas to play golf at Painted Desert Golf Club with 3 guests and an overnight stay for two rooms at Santa Fe Station. The winner of the mens’ closest to the hole contest also on #5 was Scott DeLong and he was awarded with a trip to Sparks to stay overnight and play golf with a guest at Red Hawk Golf and Resort.
