"It's the best and busiest," said Barb Joyce, owner of StonePepper's Grill and resident of Upper St. Clair. Temperatures were in the 30s, with periods of light rain and sunshine. It was a sharp contrast from last year's event, when snow boots were a necessary accessory. Many golfers said they enjoyed playing on the green fairways this year.
