One of the areas's growing scrambles was another success last weekend.
The annual Jesse Ault Memorial Scramble was held at Crooked Creek Golf Course with a large field taking part.
The championship went to the team of Brad Hannahs, Greg Darby, Dave Guy and Ron Heskett. The foursome posted a solid round of 56 for the title.
Sepecial prizes went to Andy Clay (long drive), Tim Ault (closest to the pin) and Mike Freeman (long putt).
The team putting contest was won by Lance Rice, Darrin Sawchuk, Kevin O'Grady and Chad Zambori.
The proceeds of the event benefit a scholarship, which is named in Ault's honor. Ault was tragically killed in Iraq during a tour of duty. The 2012 Union Local scholarship recipient was Michalene Mehl.
