It was a great day to get together, have some friendly competition, many laughs, and get ready for the long weekend. Looking forward to next year’s event and I have heard some murmurings of putting together an AFTAC Alumni team…I know we have some softball players out there and some very crafty ones at that.
As the day progressed, one could hear many cheers and expletives emanating around the course. The rain never came, the course was in great condition, and the weather was awesome. A perfect day for golf with a whole bunch of friends. The teams started to head back to the clubhouse to turn in their scorecards. Then they sat down for a nice catered Bar B Que lunch, catered by the golf course staff. Ed then began to give out the awards.
