As we wrote earlier the golf outing was a ton of fun… so here are some photos to look at until some of the other attendees send me their photos of the event (my cell phone camera skills leave a lot to be desired…)
First off the 1st and 2nd place teams were Fran Lokar (Lastrowinsection4) and three friends who were 3 under par.
Rick (Erie) was the workhorse of the event and between he and Fran Lokar (lastrowofsection4) they had everything set up and the POV golfers out to the links in a timely fashion.
Here is the Prizes Table with goody-bags, auction items and some POV items for the golfers to grab on their way out. The star of the show was Jason Smith’s (Jay91) donation for auction the autographed “Ditka” uniform jersey. That went for a very nice chunk of change and was so very generous of Jason to do. BTW – that is what Jason does for a living – sports memoribilia, sports autograph conventions, framings and such so if you are interested drop me a line and I’ll give you his contact info.
See all those friggin’ bags I put together the night before the outing… I worked on it too!
Here is one of the four tables that Quicksilver set up for us for the post-golf & bar festivities… that football is a smaller sized version of an NFL one and this is what it looked like at the end of the day:
I had everyone who attended autograph it so that we can auction it off online… so here goes: starting bid is $20 by Reed. Proceeds will go to the POV Upkeep fund and thank you!
We are absolutely going to do this again next year. Let’s hope the Spring Game in 2018 is not on Easter weekend so that we’ll have even more than 22 POV’s get to partake.
I have been discussing a mid-season dinner/party in Pittsburgh on a Friday evening before one of our home games. The POV will rent a nice room in a top-shelf restaurant, get some money up on the bar, have good food, good friends and auction off more items like we did last weekend.
BTW – it looks like the all of the guys attending the Golf Outing will have been able to donate between $300-$400 to the Grassroots Homeless Day Resource Center when the final accounting is finished (I made the split heavier on the Grassroots side).
Give me your thoughts and ideas and please don’t hesitate to bid on that POV’ers signed ball -it is definitely one of a kind folks…!!
