Its time again, and just when you think this tournament couldn’t be any more fun, it gets even better. As in the past, I want to refresh our memory of last year, whet you appetite for the 2000 tournament, and let you know about some new things for this year.
Who could forget Friday evening? The pizza and beverages at Judy and Chuck’s place were as always outstanding-however, the Glass Bottom boat topped that. We had an abundance of hot, delicious Domino’s pizza, plenty of beverages, a great sunset at Shell Island, and unique views of the Panama City and Bay Point Marinas. The guest pilots were able to avoid the hazards of St Andrews Bay, and get everyone home safely. Perhaps the most exciting part of the trip was the bus that transported many of the guests to the boat and back to the Hombre.
Sunday’s Mass was uplifting thanks to Neysa Troutt’s rendition of “How Great Thou Art.”
The tournament raised over $15,000 for the kids at Advocates for Children, and this is really what the tournament is all about.
Special congratulations go to the winning

Matt Berberich won a Staff Golf Bag, Fred McCrindle and Chuck Berberich Jr. won stays a Edgewater, Vic Berberich won a Nicklaus Print and the Grand Prize, a condominium stay and airfare to one of five cities won by Sharon McCrindle. No one went home empty-handed.
