Bill Heddles Recreation Center fitness coordinator Gary West organized his eighth Delta Doubles Duel Racquetball/Golf Tournament with competition being held on June 29 at Bill Heddles Recreation Center and the Cedaredge Golf Club.

Twenty-four participants, from Rangely to Montrose, gathered to test their skill in doubles racquetball and best ball golf formats. Racquetball players were partnered for tournament play at BHRC and then arranged in foursomes for nine holes of golf at Cedaredge Golf Club.

Overall winners (combined racquetball and golf scores) were Grand Junction's Ed Roffey and Kim Clemens of Delta. Their combined score for the day was 60, 30-racquetball and 30-golf. Second place winners were Delta's Brad Kolman and Montrose's Rob Hauck with a score of 58. Kolman and Hauck had to win a playoff with Hotchkiss' Phil Scmidt and Grand Junction's Gave Perez to claim their second place finish.

The event had special scoring to determine the winners. Racquetball scoring was one game to 11 points with eight points minimum awarded. Golf points were accumulated with the following format; Eagles - five points, birdies - four points, pars - three points and a bogey - two points.

Lunch was catered by Creekside Italian Cuisine prior to playing nine holes of golf.

West, and BHRC, will host a Billiards and Bags (Cornhole) Tournament on Aug. 24, with a limited number of teams. Information for the tournament will come in a later DCI edition.
