Well, this was the magical weekend for the Walker Cup Golf Event and the Annual Arizona Sunday brunch, which were organized and operated by Stan Petersen and John McGovern for the golf outing and Tom Nielsen for the magical brunch. The golfing weather was sunny and perfection at the Dove Valley Golf Course which was the venue for the annual outing. Twenty five golfers and 10 plus lunch onlys gathered at the course grill for the tasty lunch being provided. Everything went well except for one slight hiccup when Frank Stock thought the bowl of cold slaw was an individual serving. After some negotiation, Frank let the bowl goal in exchange for a second hamburger patty.....everyone happy. The golf was thoroughly enjoyed by all, regardless of the questionable results. Amazing that these people raise children. A large number of the visitors went out for dinner on Saturday evening at Charlestons in Scottsdale and the party continued. Again, it went well except for a small misstep when the waiting spilled hot au jus on Curt Larsons shirt and pants. It looked good on the North Dakota boy.
As the Sunday sun climbed in the southwest sky, 40 plus gathered at Tonto Verde Country Club for a delicious annual brunch. The conversations were certainly the high points and it is so good to see the likes of Jack and Bev O'Connell, Terry and Susan Hanson, Haven and Paula Ready and Jerry Gonyo......Wanda White, Bob and Joyce Potter, Curt Larson, were others who took their time to travel to see ole friends. How do you go wrong with mimosas, omelets, scramble eggs, potatoes, bacon, chicken fruit salad, breads and desserts. Wow.
Once again our thanks to those involved in the timely process of organizing these great events......when you see them, you wonder how they did it...............................Gerry
