The first ever Mansfield Salvation Army golf outing teed-off Wednesday at Westbrook Country Club. It started in dramatic fashion with parachutist Mike Coury of Columbus sky-diving four-thousand feet from a helicopter, with the American flag trailing him as the national anthem played in commemoration of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attack. Then, the helicopter dropped golf balls in a closest-to-the-pin contest. Kip Wise won a set of Cobra irons. The newly-assigned leaders of the Mansfield Salvation Army, Captains Andy and Melissa Betts, were on hand to thank the golfers for their support. The event was expected to raise $15,000. The outing attracted 68 golfers, each of whom paid a $120 entry fee. Numerous prizes were offered, including a car and a motorcycle for getting a hole-in-one, a large-screen T-V raffled off during dinner, and a trophy for the winning foursome.
