Bork described how the event went this year and thanked various people for their help, "This year’s tournament was a great success, probably the best weather we've had in years. There were a few things different with this year’s tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we were just glad to be able to hold the event and get the businesses in town together and have a little fun. I want to give a big thanks to Russ and Kim at the Remsen Golf Course for helping make the tournament run smoothly. They've been assisting me with the tournament these past six-years, and I really appreciate their help. I also want to thank all the businesses in town who sponsored a team; we are very lucky to have 22 teams participating, and many of these businesses have a team in the tournament every year. Lastly, thanks to the other Chamber of Commerce board members who help put on the tournament; without your volunteer help, the tournament would not go on. We'll look forward to hosting the 23rd annual Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament next year!"
