Golf Tournament a Success
The 1st Annual Nimitz Golf Classic was a huge success! We had a full field of 136 golfers, great weather, three excellent food stations and a fun surprise on the twelfth hole of the beautiful Boot Ranch Golf Course. Each player was given the chance to shoot clay pigeons, for each hit one stroke was taken off of the team's final score. That's a chance to have eight points deducted from a team's score!
A flyover of three WWII training planes and one WWII Torpedo bomber kicked off the morning, followed by tank-gun start. WWII jeeps carried golfers from their cars to registration and team photos were taken in front of the tank. The evening ended with dinner, a live auction and a dance with music by the Sheila Marshall Band.
Congratulations to the winning teams -The Black Sheep Squadron, Tarawa and USS Enterprise! All winning teams had Wounded Warriors on them!
More photos from the event will be posted on Facebook soon!
