What a wonderful day we had at NAS Jax to celebrate the life and contributions of Mary Burnside. My takeaways from the speeches about Mary: pioneer, humorous, committed, patriot, indomitable, volunteer, bionic, leader, friend, and golfer. No wonder we celebrate all her contributions to us and the legacy with which she has left us. Everyone was a winner today - Capt Undersander greeted us, we were sung to about our country, we sang Happy Birthday to Jane Casper, our photo's were taken, and then none other than Emily Brown fired the first shot from the ceremonial tee! And our thanks to Sandi Deschaine for her sponsorship and club representation - great job Sandi! And how about our winners - low gross going to Chris Hunt who shot a low gross 74 and to Jennifer Eckensberger who shot a net 64 and who won low putts of the day with 28. She said it was a personal best round for her - well done to both of our winners and to all of our flight winners!
Next week begins the Senior/Super Senior Tournament with our first round at Cimarrone Golf Course. I can't tell you how excited I am to be a SUPER Senior - and this may be the only time that I celebrate being 65 when it comes to golf! So bring your game, best two out of three is a winner! When you put your head on your pillow tonight - give a thumbs up to Mary in honor of her day - she would like that!
Birdies and Sunshine to all!
