Dozens of golfers smeared on the sunscreen and hit the green grass of Aspen Lakes on the hottest day of the year to date last Sunday, in the 20th annual Outlaw Open.

Aspen Lakes donates the use of the course for the 18-hole team tourney, which is a key fundraiser for Sisters High School athletic programs. Principal Joe Hosang cites that kind of community support for Sisters' high statewide ranking for school athletics (see related story, page 1).

"It's principally, in the past, been a football fundraiser, but we've tried to open it up to other sports as well," said SHS Athletic Director Gary Thorson.

Additional funds are raised through a raffle, this year featuring a "booze bucket" and a pellet grill. Cheerleaders sold tickets for a variety of prizes donated by local businesses.

Thorson told The Nugget that the event traditionally raises $10,000 to $12,000.

Additional events supported by Outlaws boosters include a Hall of Fame banquet in September and an auction hosted by Aspen Lakes in October.
