Attendees enjoyed a golf tournament in memory of Ron Reinking, which was won by Bob Thomas, Terry O’Hara, Bryan Aune and Mike Hawkins. Thomas also won a fishing contest, in memory of Wayne Vaverek.

“Guests also participated in a medallion hunt in which clues were given every few hours about the location of the hidden medallion,” MOMA wrote about the event. “The Zasmeta children from Hazelwood Corporation and the Graham children from Games Unlimited pieced the puzzle together and found the medallion.”
