ald-Leader =..- June 11, .Serving the MonDak area since 1908 The 20th Annual Buick Scramble Local Championships sponsored by Gem City Motors i concluded Saturday at the Sid- ney Country Club. The largest i amateur golf tournament in the world, the Buick Scramble par- i ticipates approximately 100,000 golfers each year. "We had 34 teams totaling 136 golfers which should put us as the biggest tournament held in the Rocky Mountain Section for the fifth consecutive year," Sidney Golf Pro Jeff Nelson said. "We were third in the nation last year, but probably won't be that high this year," Nelson said. "We were, howev- er, only four teams down from last year." Winning first-place gross with a gross score of 66 was the Plentywood team of Kevin Ordahl, Bill McCoy, Tully Tryan and Scott Wangerin. Sec- ond-place gross went to the Sid- ney team of Gary McCartney, Craig Averett, Wally Jungels and Jim Nelson. The team shot a 67 gross. First-place net went to the Helena team of Jason Welnel, Scott Senn, Trekker Welnel and Brian Helmbrecht with a net score of 60. Second-place net, with a score of 61, went to the Sidney team of John Jensen, Dick Lange, Blaine Otto and John Seitz. These four teams qualified for the regional tournament to be held at the Idaho Falls Country Club in Idaho later this summer. With the early spring runoff, paddlefish were running abun- dant this year resulting in inten- sive fishing this year for anglers. The paddlefish season officially closed Saturday with an estimat- ed 730 fish caught at that time. "The limit for Montana and Non Dakota ~alre 1000 paddle- fish;'; Regional Fisheries Biolo- gist Brad Schmitz said. "~When 800 fish are run through the cav- alier station, we shut the season down because we have to give a 48-hour notice prior to the offi- cial shutdown." An average of 70-80 paddle- fish were caught this yea" with one day totaling 130 paddlefish caught. The catch-and-release season, however, will remain open until June 30. Anglers are encouraged to use special cau- tion with the catch-and-release process to ensure the population of paddlefish for future anglers. No gaffing is allowed and it is advised to flatten the barbs on all hooks. Keep the fish in the water as much as possible.

At Glendive, she was also on the school's tennis team and was a second and third-place finisher at divisional tournaments. Teaching the game of tennis is nothing new to Howe as she has taught programs to all ages for two years in Glendive as well as two years in Bismarck where she spent her first two years of college. Howe heard of the opportunity to teach tennis in Sidney from her coach in Billings, Jerry Peach. "When he (Jerry) told me of the program, I immediately told him I would do it," Howe said. "It keeps me close to home so when I finish this program I will be able to teach a program in Glendive."
