Rain shortens Hospice tourney to 15 holes

CROSSVILLE — Jim Goins, Farrell Odom, Everette Cook and Bill Nicholl won the rain-shortened annual Hospice Golf Tournament played last Wednesday afternoon at the Lake  Tansi Golf Course.

With just two or three holes left in the round, the 32 teams were called off the golf course has inclement weather moved onto the Plateau, forcing the tournament to cut back to 15 holes. The shotgun start put teams on different holes to open play just before 1 p.m.

Goins' team finished at 13 under par. Virgil Ferguson, John Beck, Hoss Wyatt and Dan Boggs won second place in a draw over Tom Landry, Harold Shultz, Bob Schaffer and B. Horstkotte and Kris Burk, Dennis Sassenger, Rip Purser and Bruce Barents. All three teams finished at nine under par.

Since only 15 holes were completed, a scorecard playoff could not be used.

Roger Thackston, Conley Dykes, Chuck Sullins and Dave  Hickey won the second flight over in another draw over Greg Rasch, Ron Cartwright, Scott Carson and Don Rigano.

The third flight was won by Chris Shumate, M. Henneberg, Debbie Gibbons and Karen Seeley at even par, while Jim Brendel, Ann Brendel, Barry Reed and Barbara Reed took second at three-over-par.

  • An independence celebration to remember

    There was no event left out and not one person who couldn’t be entertained as Lake Tansi created a weekend long soirée to celebrate Independence Day this year. The large crowd of visitors provided ample participation for friendly competitions in ping pong, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard, badminton, sack races, sandcastle building, and pie eating. While Perfect Party Rentals’ bouncy houses juggled little children, the beach accommodated sun-loving families and friends, and the car show brought dozens of classic and souped-up coups for the crowds to peruse.

  • POA looks to end year ahead of budget

    This summer has been outstanding here at Lake Tansi. It is a great time of year to live in and visit our wonderful resort. Our lakes have been busy. The cabins, golf course and Recreation Department have been running full bore, as well, with many activities. Our 4th of July weekend was the best we had in years – thanks to the weather – from the Cruise-in, music and movies at the beach, right down to the pie-eating contest and all the other activities held. Next year will be bigger and better yet.

  • LT Police Cruiser.jpg Security upgrades patrol vehicle

    The Lake Tansi Department of Security and Law Enforcement has acquired a replacement patrol vehicle. It is a 2008 Chevrolet Trail Blazer with 46,500 miles. It is replacing a 2001 Chevrolet Impala with approximately 250,000 miles. The new patrol vehicle will be placed in service as soon as it is fitted with the necessary safety and emergency equipment.  It is being equipped by On Duty Depot in Knoxville, TN. The Trail Blazer is
    better suited for service in the Tansi Community than the vehicle it is replacing because it has available four wheel drive which will enable officers to respond in inclement weather.
