The turf between Fort Gordon’s dog park and disc-golf course got plenty of extra foot traffic Saturday, as part of the course for the St. Patrick’s Day Shuffle and One-Mile Geo Cache. The top overall performer was Joseph Kubiak, who smoked the 3.1-mile course in 16 minutes and 33 seconds. His closest competitors were Franklin Olson, at 18:51, and Caiden Curtis (age 14), at 19:11. The top women were Jill Ogrady, 22:17, Jorgi Sparrgove, 23:09, and Anna Matia, 24:30. Photos by Bill Bengston, Fort Gordon Public Affairs Office.
