PROCEEDS BENEFIT THE DOUSMAN FIRE DEPARTMENT & SUMMIT POLICE DEPARTMENT
The Timothy Gahagan Memorial Frostbite Scramble is similar to a 9 hole golf scramble but it's on frozen Silver Lake in Oconomowoc, WI. "Golfers" use a tennis ball and are allowed to use any device to strike the ball from the ground. Teams are comprised of 2-4 golfers with a shotgun start.
Nine hole, par 35, 1400 yards. Hole distances vary from a 75 yard par 3 too a 200 yard par 5. Tee boxes are Astroturf and the green will be shoveled and relatively smooth. The remainder of the course is un-shoveled. Golfers must use a tennis ball (supplied) but can use any device to hit the ball provided it is hit from the ground.
In 2012, our father needed medical assistance. That day, we realized how much our police, fire and EMS members contribute to our communities. Almost immediately men and women rushed into our home, some still in their civilian cloths, to assist a family member. Many of these men and women are volunteers and in an instant they dropped whatever they were doing in order to assist our family. We are immensely thankful for their dedicated service.
That day we decided we needed to give back to these heroes. That was the impetus for the Frostbite Scramble. One hundred percent of the revenue goes directly to the Dousman Fire Department and Summit Police Department to support the men and women who support our communities in our greatest time of need.
In October 2013 we made our last call to 911. The brave men and women of The Dousman Fire Department and Summit Police Department were there to assist our family as they had numerous times before. Unfortunately, Tim left us two weeks later. The event which now carries his name is in memory of Dad - Timothy Gahagan.
