O.k. I have
to admit something...back in December, when the idea of this tournament was just
a small seed with nary a thought of germination, the only thing I knew about
golf was that it involved a small white sphere; grown men and women (and even
some kids) took turns whacking at it with clubs. Honestly, I just didnít get it.
Skins? Captain & Crew? I thought skins were what I peeled off chicken and
captain and crew...arenít they on a boat?
were my words on the last page of the Inaugural Tournamentís program. I really
didnít have a clue! Since then, weíve had a few more tournaments under our
belts, many sunny days, several sets of PINGS Irons won, and lots of golf
goodies given away! This popular annual event does a couple of things. First, it
raises awareness in the county. Second and equally important, the tournament
brings in much needed revenue. Our first tournament raised just over $8,000.00
and it just keeps getting better. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of the
wonderful individuals and businesses in our county, this tournament has become a
permanent annual event in Delaware County.
