   Ben Jones Golf Tournament is July 20
   The 3rd annual Ben Jones Golf Tournament, sponsored by Snoqualmie Chapel of North Bend and Green's Funeral Home of Bellevue, Kirkland and Redmond, will be held on July 20, at the Mount Si Golf Course in Snoqualmie. The tournament is held in honor of Ben Jones, a longtime Snoqualmie Valley resident and golfer, who passed away on the 11th hole of Tall Chief Golf Course in 1995, while playing his favorite sport. All proceeds from the 18-hole scramble will benefit the Sno-Valley Senior Center. The tournament will start promptly at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. In order to honor Ben, Huling Brothers Chevrolet has offered a 2001 Buick Century to anyone who gets a hole-in-one on the 11th hole, a straight 183 yards off the tee, just one of the great prizes they offer for aces on the par 3's. In the 1999 tournament, Bill Clark drilled the ball on the par 3 4th hole and won $1,500 worth of strata golf balls. His wife remarked that the "36 dozen balls should last him through the season."
   In addition to the awards, there are raffle tickets available for a myriad of prizes supplied by local businesses. The tournament is open to everyone who enjoys golf and wants to support the Sno-Valley Senior Center. Entry is $50 and includes greens fees and lunch. Carts are extra and it is recommended they be reserved early.
   The Sno-Valley Senior Center provides programs and services to the "young at heart" in the Lower Snoqualmie Valley.
   To register, call the center at (425) 333-4152. For additional information, call Isabel Jones at (425) 333-4436. For cart reservations, call Mount Si Golf Course at (425) 391-4926.
