Hello Everyone!

I hope your all ready for the tournament again this year. We will once again be drawing to giveaway a golf cart. I have attached a flier and a registration form, please fill the registration form out and return it as soon as possible. If you are unable to send payment with the form, please either send a check or pay on paypal by August 31st. The form will hold a team spot for you but you must pay by August 31st to keep that spot.

We are also looking for sponsors for the tournament. If you would like to sponsor or know someone who would please let me know.

Just One Sample Of Many Grass Fires
Keeping All Firefighters Busy During This Heat & Drought
Collinsville Rural & City + Limestone Firefighters controlled a grass & brush fire near several houses on either side of 113th E. Ave. (19th) near 138th St. N. starting about 2:10pm Wednesday August. 1, 2012.
A nearby neighbor was bringing some cold water to offer the firefighters after they had things under control here Wednesday during the record heat. I have since seen Facebook postings that Verdigris Valley Electric Cooperative (VVEC) has donated a big supply of water and Gatorade to both Collinsville City Fire and Collinsville Rural Fire Departments. This is the only grass fire photo I've put on cvilleok recently but all local fire departments have been working multiple grass fires almost daily for weeks (either locally or for mutual aide in neighboring communities).
