Just as promised, the second part of our 12th Annual Open House Field Day coverage!
After a quick sack lunch of sandwiches, apples, a cookie and potato chips (of course!), the Gold Dust crew and our guests headed back to the Running Y for a round of golf and nice a dinner at the club house. As we do every year, the golf teams competed in a scramble, playing the best ball at every hole. And every year, the competition is pretty fierce. So who took home top (and bottom!) honors?
1st Place: Chris Moudry, Kevin Kane, Joe Dahlen, and Fernando Martinez
2nd Place: John Walker, Jason Tryan, Duane “Sarge” Preston, and Marshall Staunton
Last Place: Jan Walker, Suzi Frederickson, Dianne Spires, Katie Walker
Men’s KP (closest to the pin): Duane “Sarge” Preston
Women’s KP: Jan Walker
Men’s Longest Drive: Matt Thompson
Women’s Longest Drive: Maria Contreras
And let it be known, John had the best time out of everyone and hit a whopping 183 yard drive!
Everyone had a wonderful time on the course and enjoyed a delicious dinner put together by the Running Y catering staff afterwards. Before the night ended, Bill, John and Tricia thanked our growers and vendors for working with us, our customers for helping us grow and their continued support, and they thanked Necia, Sarah and Tifanie for their help. Without our suppliers, vendors, growers and customers, Gold Dust and Walker Brothers wouldn’t be able to take on challenges like farming the Running Y Ranch, and the support we get from everyone is very much appreciated. And of course, without the hard work of our staff, we wouldn’t be able to put on a successful Open House Field Day! So, Necia, Tifanie and Sarah, thank you for your hard work on making a wonderful day for our guests.
We hope everyone who attended had a fun day and made it home safely. Thank you to everyone who attended and your continued support of our business. We look forward to seeing everyone next year!
