Trashmasters gives back - to locals

SNOWMASS VILLAGE -The Snowmass Club will be abuzz Sept. 20-21 for the Trashmasters' younger, more laid-back brother - Trashmasters II, a locals tournament. "It's just a really good feeling, this one," said event director Matthew Tate. "These are the people that started this thing, and they're the ones that were here 20 years ago."As the unique golf tournament gained popularity and the cost to participate rose, some locals got left out. So Trashmasters' organizers started a locals event about a decade ago as a way of thanking the community for their support of the annual tourney, which raises money for college scholarships that go to local high school students. "Everyone's kind of laid back," Tate said. "They just want to play ... the unique scoring format."A barbecue dinner with an open beer and wine bar will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 at the Black Saddle Bar & Grille. The public is asked for some small donations if they attend. There will also be a small silent auction, and event chairman and founder Boone Schweitzer will honor some longtime local supporters. Registration for the tournament is sold out. Trashmasters' organizers will pass out "SWAG" commemorating the event's anniversary. jbeathard@snowmasssun.com
