It is quite a challenge maneuvering in and around trees, snow and the frozen Cedar Creek. Prizes are given away for accomplishments such as closest to the hole, lowest score, and others. A spaghetti lunch including beverages will follow the game at the Cedarburg American Legion Post where the awards, door prizes, and raffle prizes will be awarded.
