The weather couldn't have been better for our 21st annual golf tournament. After a 2-year hiatus due to Covid, we were back at it! The community supported us in a big way, not only by coming out to golf, but also in sponsoring golf holes and donating wonderful door prizes in an effort to help us raise money for our scholarship fund. Golfers were treated to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As always, Kevin McGrellis at Hidden Valley was an accommodating and generous host, and everyone enjoyed the day.
We would like to thank Roger Hovey of Usherwood Technologies for once again being our corporate sponsor, providing numerous opportunities for golfers to win big prizes, thus making the competition even more exciting. Matt Hovey, Jeff Gaffney, Mike Guernier, and Mitch Geddes all qualified to take part in the shoot-out for a chance to win $50,000! Though no one walked away with the big money, the possibilities were definitely thrilling! In the additional contests, Parker Horan and Mitch Geddes won for the longest drives, and John Egresits and Mike Talerico won for closest to the pins. Each of these golfers won a $100 gift certificate for their choice of Bridgestone golf balls.
There were so many winners during the day: the BIG door prize (a beautiful Poly Glider donated by Joe Schneider) was won by Bob Klumbach; and Tom Schoen Sr. won the 50/50 raffle. Bill Guernier chaired the golf end of things this year, and reported that the tournament also yielded 8 foursomes walking away with prizes.
The Alumni Association would like to thank Roger Potenski '74 for his assistance in setting up for the tournament; Kevin McGrellis & crew for hosting us for the 21st time; Roger Hovey '80 for providing us with a corporate sponsor; John Klauser for accommodating our deadline for signs & golfer prizes; Kathleen Moen (Pat O'Connor's great granddaughter) for agreeing to be our photographer; Bill Guernier '74 for chairing the golf end of things; the Class of '74 for showing up in larger numbers than any other class; Matt Hovey, Sarah Hovey, Sean Hovey, & Gabby Pugliese for picking up all the golf signs at the end of play; and all our faithful hole sponsors and door prize donors. It really takes so many to make this happen every year, and this year's tournament was deemed a great success!
