1st Annual International Golfball Race

This afternoon we held the 1st Annual International Golfball Race. Each participant furnished his own golfball and paid a 25¢ entrance fee. The contestants lined up at one end of the park on an asphalt road that has a slight downhill slant to it. At the GO they were to roll their balls toward the other end, approximately 100 yards away. Only underhand throws were allowed.
We divided the entrants into six person heats and then had a roll-off of the highest heat finishers. Winner took all the money which amounted to almost ten dollars American. Canadians had to pay their entrance fee in American money. There they go!
Here they come!
