HIGHLANDS – Teams of washer players are practicing this month, in preparation for the Rotary Club’s annual 3-Hole Washer Board Charity Tournament that will be held Saturday, September 20.

This will be the third year for the event, which pits 2 man teams against each other in a double elimination style tournament, to compete for 3 awards, prize money, and most important, bragging rights. Proceeds from the tournament go to the club’s Rotary Foundation charity programs.

The locale for the event has changed this year, and it will be held at the Baytown Boat Club, 1600 Clearlake Road in Highlands, starting at 12 noon. Chairman of the event is past president of the club, Charlie Ward.

There will be 50 two-man teams competing, and besides local Highlands players, Rotarians from all over the District 5890 are expected to compete.

Refreshments, food and drink will be available at the event, and there will also be a silent auction.
