"It's big," said Ed Souza, who has been officiating at the tournament since it start- ed 25 years ago. "The bars make a lot of money and restaurants clean up." With hundreds of players from as far as Oregon, motels and campgrounds were full and many local businesses were kept busy with cus- tomers. The popularity of the tour- nament makes it such a suc- cess. Because it's so well or- ganized and in such a great location, it's considered one of the best softball tourna- ments in Northern Callfor- nla. The Ozzies, a team from Chico, went undefeated (6-0) and won the tournament. The second-place team, Heaven's Best, was from Vacaville. Of the eight local teams that competed, Qulncy's E.P.A. did the best with a 3-2 record. After winning its first game and losing Its second game, E.P.A. advanced through the losers bracket with three more wins before finally being eliminated. Chester's Seneca, Chester's Hounds and Quincy's Jerks No. 2 each went 2-2 in the tournament. Seneca defeated Quincy's Bone Dry (who fin- ished with a 1-2 record) in the second round of the winners bracket. Quincy's Stoneys al- so Finished 1-2. Greenville's one team, Mt. Huff, lost its first two games but then got a win in the con- solation bracket.

Hole Of The Week Number 3 -Simplicity" As you approach the elevated tees of Hole #3 of the Dragon, you are struck by its devastating beauty. Completely set before you, it is the essence of its name-'SimpticRy". Your secondary evaluation of this gentle dogleg right, Par 4,400 yard hole, starts your heart pumping. The magnificent stands of ponderosa and Jeffrey pines tighten around you like the claws of the Dragon. Your fast challenge is to avoid the jaws of the Dragon, two deep natural swales that you can get lost in forever. You can be a hero by playing to the left side of the fairway along the Dragon's sp/ne which guarantees you safe approach to the over- sized green which the Dragon has fortified by deep cluster bunkem. The best things in life should be so simple. 1.530-832-4887
