WOODBURY – The 10th annual Woodbury Indoor Miniature Golf Open is scheduled for Feb. 15-19 at the Woodbury Senior Community Center…

But there’s a request. Charles Bartlett, the founder of the tournament, needs some help getting the course set up. As of now, the work of putting the course together continues to be done by a handful of senior citizens.

Bartlett and his team are looking for some younger blood to help keep the golf tournament going. The dates of the work needed are Thursday, Feb. 14 for about two hours from 4-6 p.m., which is when the course is assembled. Take down is Monday, Feb. 18 from about 4-6 p.m.

In addition to laborers, there are volunteers need to help with working at the desk during the tournament weekend.

Anyone who would like to volunteer to help with the Woodbury Indoor Miniature Golf Open can contact Bill Geddes at wmgeddes@gmail.com or (203) 263-5372.

Bartlett, who had previously served on the Board of Selectmen, had come up with a miniature golf course plan while he was working on Masters in Business Administration from Murray State University in Kentucky. That eventually translated into the 9-hole course for Woodbury, which he re-built in 2017.

Net proceeds now go the Community Services Council of Woodbury. Bartlett said about $15,000 has been raised for the Community Services Council of Woodbury so far.
