KONE and AIA Dayton provided registration giveaways as golfers registered under the porch of the 1840 House, Sugar Valley Country Club’s temporary headquarters. The four person "Best Ball" Scramble began at 1:00 as the foursomes drove to their perspective starting holes on their Brower Insurance sponsored golf carts.
