Rotary Washer Tournament raises fun, and funds for R.I.

HIGHLANDS – About 20 teams competed last Saturday in the Highlands Rotary Club’s annual Washer Throwing Tournament. The event was held at Charlie’s Ice House on Main Street.

Excellent play from several throwers made this an exciting tournament, with the final winning team determined by a play-off after the top two teams tied with perfect 100 scores.

Winning teams were:

#1 – DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH, Billy Young, Norman Adkins

#2 – DOUBLE TROUBLE, Bryan Teel, Bobo Cotten

#3 – THE STOCKWELLS, Theron Stockwell, Teary Stockwell

The Rotary Trophy was won by Ruben and Mini Izaguire, who will keep it for a year until next tournament.

A live auction helped with the fund raising. Two beautiful handmade quilts, donated by Connie russell, brought over $1000 dollars. A liquor wagon and a giant TV were included.

The tournament is a fundraiser with all proceeds going to Rotary International for their Polio Plus and other worldwide projects. Each year Highlands Rotary raises almost $10,000 for this cause.
