91 golfers tee it up at Nelson Memorial tourney
Nice spring day at The Valley Club
The Wood River Baseball and Softball Association (WRBSA) staged its first James Nelson Memorial Golf Tournament on a lovely spring afternoon Saturday, May 21 at The Valley Club. The event was held in memory of longtime valley baseball supporter James Nelson, 42, who died March 19. Many of Nelson's relatives and friends gathered for the scramble tournament that featured 91 golfers and nearly 23 teams.
