For the 54th straight year, it's time for the Baldwin Open golf tournament.

This year's tourney will be Aug. 1 at the Baldwin Municipal Golf Course. Tee times are from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. The 18-hole tourney costs $40, which covers a barbecue lunch and cash prizes for five flights of players.

"We can help form a foursome if players don't mind the wait," said Marvin Jardon, tourney organizer. "With a good weather forecast it should be a great day to play and have some fun, so make your plans to be with us for the Baldwin Open."

There will also be prizes for closest to the pin on holes No. 2 and No. 5 and for the longest drive on No. 7.

Signal, Knoll seeking

baseball, softball reports

From Signal Staff Reports

As with every summer, the Baldwin City Signal will be publishing information received about summer sports.

This year, there will be a "coordinator" of that information, Baldwin High School senior-to-be Ben Knoll. As Knoll's senior class project, he will be doing his mentoring program through Signal editor/publisher Jeff Myrick.

Knoll will be doing various stories throughout the summer. It is hoped that arrangements with the Baldwin City Recreation Commission will be able to provide most of the details. But, coaches are encouraged to contact Knoll as well.

Knoll can be reached on his cell phone at 785-331-9418 and his home phone is 594-3609.

As in the past, coaches can send information to the Signal by FAX at 785-594-7084 or by e-mail to jmyrick@baldwincity.com.
