In this conteset, the golfers don't care about the weather, since the greens are well-protected - in downtown Hamilton businesses.

The 12th annual Soroptimists Mini-golf tournament is Saturday, February 2, with registration at 9:30 a.m. at the Hamilton Eagles Lodge on North Second Street. However, your team of four or five players must PRE-register for the event at 381-1335. Registration forms are at www.sihamilton.org.

The 18-hole course will take the players, putters in hand, from business to business to tackle a wide variety of imaginative mini-golf holes. The Traditional teams will take the best ball score on each hole (registration $80 for the team) and the Caddyshack teams will bribe at many holes for lower scores (registration $55 for the team).

The awards will be presented around 2 p.m., back at the Eagles Lodge. KLYQ will help make the presentations - everything from best costumed team to lowest traditional and lowest Caddyshack scores.
