Team Makes 17 of 24 Shots to Win Suite for Upcoming Stampede Game

BOISE, ID, August 28, 2010 — The Inaugural Tom Scott Toyota Classic golf tournament was held at BanBury Golf Course in Eagle on Saturday, Aug. 28, hosting more than a dozen groups who competed in a scramble.

The Stampede turned the golf tournament into a basketball competition on the tee box of hole No. 16 – they livened up the event with a pop-a-shot game in which the winning team received a certificate good for a Grand Entertainment Suite at a Stampede game for this upcoming season. Each team was asked to shoot 24 shots at the hoop, and the team with the most makes was named the winner.

On hand representing the Stampede were Managing Investor Bill Ilett, member of the ownership group Brian King, new assistant coach Greg Minor and two Stampede Spirit dancers, Jessica A. and Danielle.

After all the teams had shot, the winning team of Griff McKay, Jason Lish, Shawn Lee and Matt Belue was given the award at the lunch afterwards. The team made 17 of 24 shots. “The Stampede organization cares about the community and this was a perfect way to show our support for this golf tournament, which gave aid to a couple of vital charitable causes,” Stampede President and GM Steve Brandes said. “We look forward to partnering with Tom Scott Toyota more in the future and are always looking to associate ourselves with organizations like Arts West and Camp Rainbow Gold.”

The tournament benefitted Arts West School for the Performing and Visual Arts, as well as Camp Rainbow Gold. For more information on these organizations, go to and, respectively.
