Regan golf tourney benefits scholarships
Seventy-five players recently participated in the Jim Regan Memorial Golf Tournament, a Churchill County-sponsored event for the benefit of scholarships at the Fallon Golf Course.
Five scholarships totaling $7,000 were awarded in 2019 to Taylor Ingram, Kaylynn Perez, Brooke Shyne, McKenna Montgomery, and Angeleena Tomb. Jim Regan was heavily involved in our community and was a former Churchill County commissioner, who passed while in office on April 3, 2000.
His legacy continues to benefit our community.
The team of “Found It!” including Ed Smirnes, Jim Isbister, Andrew Palmer, and Tomas Kutansky won first place. The Regan tradition continued with Grandson Matt Chicvara’s team, “Chip In Dale(s)”, taking second, which also included Owen Mackedon, Travis Hansen, and Mark Burkhardt. “The Real Found It” team took third, consisting of Troy Tweedy, Lawrence Mori, Brad Dolan and Randy Hines.
The Closest to the Pin prize winners were Tod Dericco and Jamie Davis. Joe Cushing and Aisha McDuffie won the Longest Drive contest. Camacho Auto Sales provided a 2019 Ford Ranger for the Hole-In-One prize but, unfortunately, there was no winner for the truck.
