GROVE CITY — The Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored its second annual "The Great Balls of Fall" raffle event on Oct. 8 during Grove City's annual Fall Fest.

The event was set up in Grove City Memorial Park on the hill leading to the Grove City ball fields and featured 2,000 individually-numbered golf balls, which were dropped from the back of a Grove City Borough dump truck into an obstacle course. The course was set up like a pinball machine, with obstacles including hay bales, potted plants, pumpkins and other fall items. Golf balls crossed the finish line individually to determine the place winners.
