Gering Citizen file photo - Coach Chuck Deter, who passed away in May, is honored for his coaching career and contributions to the community during a dinner at the Steel Grill last summer during Oregon Trail Days.  
On Friday, July 11 the Deter Dynasty four-man scramble will be held at Monument Shadows Golf Course to honor the retired Gering High School wrestling coach who died at 76 years old. There will be an 8 a.m. shotgun start.

Chuck Deter held an impressive coaching record throughout his career. He was originally from Denver and coached for a short period of time in Colorado before winding up in Gering where he stayed and coached for 30 years. From all of his hard work, he ended up being elected into the Nebraska High School Hall of Fame during the year of 1983.

By the end of his coaching career, he ended up with a dual record of 147-30-5 and, within that record, there was a nine-year long unbeaten streak that amounted to a total of 106 matches. Among his six state championships, he also had 30 individual champions. The city of Gering later honored him by naming July 12 as Chuck Deter Day.

In order to honor the man and help celebrate his life as one of the greatest coaches in Nebraska high school history, this scramble is being held and all of the proceeds that will be made from the event will go to support the Gering wrestling team. The event is also honoring the teams from years 1974, 1984, 1994, and 2004.

The scramble event will cost $50 per person or $200 per team to get into which will include the fees for the golf meet, a cart, and lunch in the price. The lunch will be served by Caddie’s Bar and Grill following the competition. There will be 36 spots available for the day. For those who wish to receive mulligans, they will also be available for purchase on arrival.

There will be numerous hole prizes for the event as well as prizes for the top winners among the men’s and women’s teams. All of the hole prizes will be announced at 1:30 p.m.

In order to reserve a spot for this scramble or to find out more information about the event, call the pro shop for the course directly at (308) 635-2277.
