Chamber Connection – April 12 By Butch Burney

Congratulations to the golf team of Alliance Bank, the winners of the 34th Annual Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament last Friday at Sulphur Springs Country Club. We had a full field of 43 teams that competed for the tournament championship. The Alliance Bank team was composed of Kevin Monk, Carter Monk, Jason Thompson, Jase Thompson, Mike Jumper and Craig English.

Alliance Bank and Interstate Body Shop both tied with rounds of 47, and Alliance won on a scorecard playoff. Interstate Body Shop was composed of Chuck Sickles, Haden Sickles, Randy Blackmon, Kason Childress, Zac Blackmon and Brody Blackmon.

Third place was the team of Hidden Lakes Hunting Resort, made up of Cord Burnett, Joe Wolcik, Daniel Cerretani, Thomas Jenkins, JW Burnett and Chris Hass.

Thanks to all our sponsors!
