A huge Thank You to Mark Stephens for once again running a smooth A Tie event full of goodies for everyone. A big thank you to all of his staff DJ Hunt, Dave Lonteen, Jesse Cahill, Black Ace (Mark Stephens), Karma Junkie (Paul Grasso), Disc-or-Die (Paul Holstein), and Wolf Pack Discs (Brian Frawley). I know there were others who have helped so know that all of your time and effort was recognized. It was also very cool having Amber Frawley stationed on hole 1 Saturday (by a bowl of candy :-) )chasing away and would-be casuals! Great job Mark!
