A founder of the Taneytown History Museum, George B. Crouse was a lifelong golfer. "He'd been golfing since he graduated high school. Tournaments were a family event," said Kenneth Crouse, George's brother.
One More Round for George, the museum's inaugural golf tournament named in his memory, will be held Sept. 20 at Quail Valley Golf Course in Littlestown, Pa.
Funds raised will go to the museum, which is searching for a new home in Taneytown.
The tourney's shotgun start will be at 8 a.m. Golfers may register in advance or beginning at 7 a.m. the day of the tournament for $80, and all participants are invited to enjoy a continental breakfast of doughnuts, coffee and juice.
The registration fee will include 18 holes of golf with a cart, range balls, on-course soda and water, and a lunch buffet featuring pit beef, pit turkey, side dishes, desserts and beverages.

Participants will have the opportunity to win some great prizes by taking part in several course events, including a putting contest, a closest-to-the-pin competition, straightest drive, and double their money on the green by landing within the indicated circle. A hole-in-one could take home a 2013 Ford Escape, a Treetops Resort trip, a Las Vegas trip or an Exotics Trilogy Fairway Wood Golf Club.
The format will be Captain's Choice Scramble.
In addition, a 50/50 drawing will take place at the clubhouse.
Sponsorship packages are available at $75, $300, $500 and $1,000.
Quail Valley Golf Course is at 901 Teeter Road.

Come early. Stay late. Visit and reminisce, say the organizers of the Mayberry Picnic.
Since the fall of 2001, folks who live in or have lived in the general vicinity of the Mayberry area have been coming together once a year for food and fellowship.
If you or someone you know would like to join in the festivities, plan to come out to the Mayberry Game Protective Association, at 2555 Mayberry Road, at 1 p.m. Sept. 8. Follow the signs to the pavilion.
Those attending are encouraged to bring memorabilia, including pictures and historical documents on Mayberry homes.
Fried chicken and paper goods will be provided, but please bring drinks for your family and a dish to share with the community. Chicken will be served at 2 p.m.
Please RSVP to Peggy Keeney by Sept. 4 at 410-346-7009.
