Perry wins the Soup

The disc golf course at Zephyr Cove Park should get a new basket soon, thanks to a generous turnout of players Sunday at the monthly tournament at Bijou Community Park.

Each of the 19 competitors at the Soup Series event donated $5 and one of the players pledged more than $100.

“That puts us over halfway toward the purchase of a basket at Zephyr,” said Soup commissioner Dan Thrift.

John Perry, a professional from Southern California who relocated at South Shore a year ago, won the symbolic prize of a can of chicken noodle soup. Perry shot a 2-under-par 79 to finish tied with “Super” Dave Pollock of Truckee.

Last year’s Soup king, Joe Meyer, was third with a 2-over 83.

Gayle Vineyard was the top woman, defeating her Beads, Ect. rival Patricia Riggs by three strokes with a 103.

Bruce Fullerton won a new driver by taking the closest-to-the-pin contest on basket No. 1. His drive landed 12 feet, 7 inches from the pin.

The Soup Series, now in its sixth season, will continue May 21.

Anyone desiring to help purchase a basket at Zephyr Cove, can call John Lufrano at Douglas County Parks, (775) 588-0271, or Thrift at (530) 544-8078.

The Zephyr course has 10 baskets and eight posts.
