Local golfers are invited to don their favorite kilts and join in the first Fred Thayer Memorial Golf Tournament, slated for July 30 at the Thousand Acres Lakeside Golf Club. A kilted Pete Versteegen is pictured above as he readies a shot. Frederick A. Thayer III, retired judge for the Garrett County Circuit Court who was well known for pride in his Scottish ancestry, for his love of golf, and as an accomplished bagpipe player, died in 2006. This tourney in his memory is being sponsored by the McHenry Highland Festival. Thayer co-founded the Garrett Highlanders bagpipe and drum band in 1979 (now Garrett Highlands Pipes and Drums).
A portion of the proceeds from the tournament will be donated to a scholarship fund in Thayer’s name, which was established in 2007. See story on today’s sports link. To register, persons should go to www.highlandfest.info/golf.html by July 25.
