Golf outing a success

Team Vance joined recently to make July's Wing King Golf Outing another success, fostering esprit de corps while raising money for the company-grade officers' council.
A handicapped blind-draw format, or one adjusted to the ability of non-golfers, was used for the game. This meant participants played their own rounds of golf, their scores were drawn out of a hat and the lowest pair of 18-hole scores won the event.
The monthly outings began in June. Prizes are awarded for first, second and third place as well as for the longest drive and closest to the hole. Mostly every player has received a prize from each event.
"I had a good time at the June event," said Dennis Hunt, 71st Comptroller Squadron commander. "There was good food, the course was nice and it offered a great opportunity for informal mentoring. I truly enjoyed the afternoon and I look forward to today's game."
The games continue today, Sept. 8 and Oct. 6 at Pheasant Run Golf Club. Lunch begins at 12:45 p.m. Teeoffs begin at 1:30 p.m.
"I look forward to the event growing in the future, and will continue to support Vance," said Pheasant Run owner Tom McDaniel.
Cost is $30 and will be collected at the golf course. The CGOC receives $5 of each registration fee. To sign up for the outings, go to S:\Public\CGOC\WingKingGolf\Golf SignUp.xls.
