ARLINGTON After the June 6 golf tournament was postponed due to rain, the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce enjoyed a glistening day in bright sunshine June 25. Although the course was short 34 golfers, the day was a success, said Tarin O'Brien.
"We were fortunate to have such a beautiful day," O'Brien said. "It was a godsend." After several months of steady rain, management of the Gleneagle Golf Course in Arlington chose to postpone the tournament. They were very lucky at picking the second date: June 25 was perfect, with a blue sky to die for, and ideal temperatures, although some folks were sweating upon return to the clubhouse for dinner.
"On first indication, we seem to have made more money than last year," O'Brien said, although she couldn't quite figure how, with eight teams missing.
"We had good participation at the dinner," she said.
