The Hot Springs Village Breakfast Lions’ recent best ball scramble tournament at Magellan Golf Course wrapped up with a luncheon celebration at Balboa Pavilion.
 The event was their 16th, and it raised funds for their philanthropic endeavors. More than 70 players teed off Oct. 21.
“We are very grateful to register so many players on our 16th tournament anniversary,” said JoAnne Corry, club president.
Major sponsors included Ike Eisenhower State Farm Insurance and Jim and Mel’s Golf Cars.
Helen Vanstone initiated a challenge along with the help of Gaston Tree Service.
A crane was placed near the practice putting green and participants were lifted high above the green where they would drop a golf ball. The closest ball or one in the hole would win half the cash donated from the purchase of each chance to drop a ball. Donations amounted to more than $1,300. Winning closest to the hole was John Shephard.
Flight winners as follows: Flight A, Clark and Jean Mowry, Dennis Faulk and Bill Bailey; Flight B, Nick Dailey, Gil Polk, Chris Robertson and Bob Peters; Flight C, Duane White, Jason Albrect, Melissa Faulk and Mary Zody.
