The loot for the awards.  Many returning trophies.
Attendance was limited, for the first time, to 32 pre-registered players.  All others were welcome.  As it turns out there were only 23 players.  We did have 32 registered at one point with 3 on the standby list.  Those who missed, missed out on a great day!

The weather was perfect in the high 60's and sunny.  The amount of players did not crowd the course and the food was too much, as usual!

The course was in fine preparation with Jerry Garcia coming by on Thursday to assist in the final pruning and burning of limbs.  We also prepped a couple of the tee pads.  The Countess had raked the entire estate and with the Count's tractor driving we compiled HUGE piles of branches and fir cones.

Rain came 4 days before the GHEDI, allowing the piles to be burned.  We had gone about 80 days with only one day of rain the entire summer.  The piles of branches were very dry and burned easily.
