The 13th Annual Chipping in for Charity Golf Tournament held on October 14th at Columbia Country Club was a resounding success. The tournament raised approximately $16,000.00 (final numbers are not available yet but will be reported soon) for Mid-Missouri Legal Services’ Veterans Law Project, which provides pro bono legal services for low income veterans in our community. Congratulations to the Rogers Ehrhardt team for winning Championship Flight this year by shooting a sixteen under par score of 55. Other winners were: A Flight – Harper, Evans, Wade & Netemeyer team with a score of 60; B Flight – Commerce Trust Company team with a score of 63; C Flight – Oxenhandler/Gerding team with a score of 66; D Flight – Missouri Bar Young Lawyers Section Council team with a score of 69; and, E Flight – Lear Werts LLP team of Brad Lear and friends with a score of 73.
Congratulations are also in order for the Mid-Missouri Legal Services team for winning the consolation prize for last place/highest score (but probably most fun had!) in the tournament which is among the more coveted prizes given away at the tournament. Additional prize winners were: closest-to-the-pin on hole 6: Jim Evans; closest-to-the-pin on hole 11: Bob Gerding; closest-to-the-pin on hole 13: Jim Howard; closest-to-the-pin on hole 16: (again!) Jim Howard; longest putt on hole 9: Matt S.; longest drive (women) on hole 1: Jill Harper; longest drive (men) on hole 1: Tim Gerding. Bill Ellis was the winner of the putting contest.
