On Friday, June 17, 2016, under rainy skies with the promise of sun coming out by mid-morning, men and women gathered at Chesapeake Hills Golf Course to raise funds for Arick L Lore American Legion Post 274.
This year there were thirty five teams registered. With a late start due to the rain, they still managed to finish the tournament by 3 pm and headed off to the American Legion Post 274 for a roast beef dinner.
There were a lot of door prizes and silent auction items. All the door prizes had a number assigned to them and Joyce Baki called out the ticket umbers and the holder of the winning ticket got to draw a door prize number out of the bucket.
Of course the teams wanted to know who won the closest to the pin contests and they were announced as follows:
Hole #2 – Jimmy Atkinson
Hole #4 – Jay Bolles
Hole #13 – Carlos Perez
Hole #16 – Kevin Rodgers
Closes to the line on Hole 18 was Paul Lombardi and the longest drive was T J Foley.
The car from Bayside was safe again as no one had a Hole in One.
The winners of the tournament were:
1st Place Team # 8A – Captain C Bowen – 55
2nd Place Team #5B – Captain Mitchell – 56
3rd Place Team $11B – Captain East – 57
Thanks to all who participated and helped raise funds for the American Legion Post 274 programs.
