Save the Date

The Fifth Annual Zach Stewart Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on July 14, 2012 on the Madrona Links Golf Course in Gig Harbor. We request anyone interested in participating register on or before June 15, 2012.

Currently we are planning a sequenced start with a sandwich of choice in the club house after each team finishes the course. However, if we have enough golfers we will conduct a shotgun start.

The tournament accomplishes two goals. It allows Zach’s good friends to gather once a year to share memories and to hoist a pint for one of the good guys who left us too soon. It also provides the funds that help us provide four scholarships each year at Bates Technical College. So far, we have been able to provide scholarships every year without having to delete the endowment we set up in September 2007.

Thank You To Everyone

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that helped participate and donate to the golf tourney this year. This year's event helped raised over $7,000 for the Zach Stewart Endowed Scholarship at Bates Technical College. Despite having a few less golfers from last year and having some rain showers, we still managed to keep funding scholarships in Zach's name.

We also must extend a huge congrats to our first ever repeat champions: Chris Torrone and Jordan Foster; once again they were able to ride the coattails of two impressive golfers Rob McDougall and John McDougall. Longest Drive went to Olen Stoorsali and Closest to Pin went to David Swanson - coincidentally, both those guys each just had their first babies born just weeks ago - must be something to that. As always, the having the most fun award went to Chris Scheer - pics should be up shortly and the Scheer Princess will be on there.

A special thank you goes out to Ralph & Lib Stewart, for helping put on another great event - everyone seemed to have a great time. Special thanks to Jake Hanson for helping run the day-of coordination, announcing the winners and reminding us why we participate (to have fun in Zach's name). Another big thanks to Mike Welch whose company Thompson Smitch helped match donations for the day of the tourney.

Countdown to Tourney and Special Thanks

The tournament is nearly upon us. If you have not signed up or paid to play, it may be too late (but it doesn't hurt to ask, we'll see what we can do to get your foursome in).

Also special thanks to Tactical Tailor for donating some awesome packs, which will be given to the winning team of this year's tourney.
