On June 27, 2015, under blue skies and a light breeze, 30 Local 458 members took to the links at St. Andrew's Golf Course in West Chicago, Illinois for a fun 18 holes of golf.
This was an attempt to revive our annual golf outing. Everyone who participated said they had a good time! The first group teed off at 9:00am and 7 other groups followed. The course was in great shape considering all the rain we have been having lately and the winning score of 3 under par 69 was achieved by 2 different teams!
Congratulations to retiree's Ken Balon, Joe Gremal, Jack Doyle and Ray Urchell for their score of 69! Also a team from Buhl Press consisting of Jim Billsten, Paul Borcherding, Joe Holford and Mark Mershon scored the same!
We also awarded a cash prizes for the Longest Drive and 4 different Closest to the Pin holes.
After the golf was finished everyone gathered in the lounge for lunch and drinks. Everyone agreed the format was great and they liked this better than the dinners in the past.
A great big thank you goes out to Ken Balon who was very instrumental in getting this outing all arranged! Without him it wouldn't have taken place.
We are looking to do this again next year and hope to have more participants. We are looking for any suggestions on how to make it better. We are also looking for Committee Members to help with the running of this event.
We will let you know as soon as we can the date for next year but the last week in June seems like a good time so SAVE THE DATE!!!.
