The 2nd annual Sasquatch Brew Am took place Friday morning at McMenamins Edgefield Pub Course. Edgefield is a 17-hole (don’t ask) course of all par 3 holes, the longest being only 83 yards. The tourney was for a very worthy cause and put on by the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation. I also sponsored a hole at the tournament.
Nico Freccia, of 21st Amendment, tees off.
I can’t say for sure how this happened, but on our very first hole, after enjoying some delicious Blue Dot Double IPA and Adam served to us by Alan Sprintz, owner of Hair of the Dog Brewing, Nico teed off and his ball sailed through the trees. As it did so, something it hit fell to the ground and initially I thought it was just a leaf. But when we walked up to the green, this baby bird was sitting quietly in the fairway beneath the tree. Did Nico knock it down? Hard to say.
