Kingman Letter of Thanks: To Community for Success of Mutt Matchers Golf Tourney

Mutt Matchers and Friends would like to express their heartfelt thanks to many people for our 1st Annual "Putts for Mutts," which was held at the beautiful Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course on April 10. Despite the winter storm on Saturday, it was sunny but cool on Sunday, and the "tee off" started at 9 a.m.

We first would like to thank our 18 sponsors who so generously donated a hole for us: Stan Baran, CPA; Desert Road Riders Motorcycle Club; Dr. Joseph Tedesco, OB-GYN; Tee'd Off Custom Golf Shop; JIMGlO Trailers, Lake Havasu City; True Love Plumbing; Ajax Bail Bonds; Fugitive Investigative Team; Law Offices of Mark A. Sippel, PLLC; Big Dog Motorcycles-Performance Specialists, Inc.; Hyundai; Guardian Fiberglass; Whitney & Whitney, PLLC; Route 66 Auto Sales; "Above All" Mohave County Realty; Off Road Diner; www.greatsitedesign.com; and Supporters of Mutt Matchers and Friends. Also, thanks to Redneck's for their gift certificate.

Without the help of Paul Mowry and his staff at Cerbat Cliff Golf Course, this would not have been as successful as it was. We were made welcome, and they answered our many questions to ensure a successful tournament. We are very grateful to all of you at the course! To the golfers who signed up and played for our group, we hope you had fun, and enjoyed our "unique" awards! Thanks for showing up.

We had six volunteers from our Mutt Matchers and Friends group, and I would be remiss in not mentioning their names: Dick Torgerson for making our signs, Ken Wilder for his artistry in painting the signs, Stoney Snider for his creativity in painting our "awards," Jeff Jackson for his help in the finishing touches of the awards, Andraya Whitney for her flyer/poster designs and our T-shirts, and Teri Ruggles for her photographs. Our dogs thank each and every one of you!
