There are still a few spots open if you are a disabled veteran and would like to compete in the Boots on the Green Golf Tournament in Granite City.  This is the 7th annual event, and will be held at the Arlington Greens Golf Club on May 13.  They are pairing 72 Veterans with 72 active duty personnel.

Tournament organizer John Schmeink is a recreational therapist with the VA in St. Louis.  He tells The Big Z for many, golf is therapy.

There are a limited amount of prizes since this is more geared toward the spirit of competition and camaraderie, according to Schmeink.  Dinner follows the tournament, also at the golf course.  For information on this tournament, call 314-652-4100 x 66341.
