Fall 2002 UVM Disc Golf Tournament
Wednesday, October 9, 2002

In a ground-breaking new tradition, close to forty competitors took part in the first-ever disc golf tournament on the campus of the University of Vermont.

Starting outside Bailey-Howe Library and winding around to the green outside Chittenden, Buckham, and Wills, eight baskets provided a range of challenge, with a par-three standard.

When the scorecards came back, Dave Hoffman led the pack with a two-under par to capture the top spot (okay, so he tied with five others, but his name was picked out of the hat) and take home the free Rossignol skis.

The other top scorers with a total of 22 were: Tom Billion, Curtis Hopkins, Greg Murphy, Robyn Smyth, and Ander Wilson.

Profits from the event fund Alternative Break community service programs, which engage UVM students in meaningful volunteer experiences.  See more about Alternative Breaks at http://www.uvm.edu/~altbreak/.
