Dancing Rabbit Ready for Jimmie Rodgers

The annual Jimmie Rodgers Memorial Festival Golf Tournament is slated for Thursday, May 6 at the Dancing Rabbit Golf Club at the Pearl River resort in Choctaw, Miss.

Registration for the four-person scramble is 8:00 a.m. with play starting at 9:00 a.m. The cost per team is $125 per person or $500 per team.

"We've got a few slots left, so if anybody would like to get in the tournament and come play with us and have a good time, they can give me or Betty Lou a call and we'll be glad to fix them up," said Robert Smith, chairman for the tournament.

"We're really looking forward to this. This is one of the ways that we're able to promote the Jimmie Rodgers Foundation as well as make a little money so that we can bring good talent to town for the festival," said Betty Lou Jones of the Jimmie Rodgers Foundation.
