"TAKE TWO" DEPARTMENT
Ben Skunicki, of MDC Wallcoverings, organized a huge sneeze just as the shutter
went off at the Putting Green, so we took another shot following his recovery....
Cool, comfortable, dry weather favored this year's 2005 Chicago PDCA/FCA Golf Outing, held
once again on the challenging Blackhawk Course at Indian Lakes Resort. One hundred thirty-two
reservations made for a full course of players enjoying their round of golf, participating in
the contests, and enjoying numerous games along the way. Honors for Low Gross went to the
foursome of Ron O'Toole (M.A.B. Paints), Tom Blaney (Oosterbaan Decorating), Don Manty
(National Decorating), and Phil Hayes (M.A.B Paints), who posted an eleven-under score of 61.
Tom Blaney also won the $500 Cash Prize drawing among all present golfers. Jim Creed
(Sherwin-Williams) won a putter in the Sink-the-Putt contest. Longest Drive honors went to
Doug Skates (Sherwin-Williams), while Stephanie Perik (Pecover Decorating) seized the Women's
Longest Drive. Bill Nielsen (Pecover Decorating) captured the Longest Putt contest, and
Veronica Leal (Leopardo Companies), received special newcomer recognition by playing golf for
the first time at the Outing. The Split-the-Pot contest was divided among Tony Nugent
(Painters Collaborative), Keith Olsen (J.C. Licht & Company), John Jacob (Hester Decorating),
and Walt Dwyer (IHC). Mark Fehr (Elite Painting) and Terry Bobbe (Bobbe & Company/Fort
Sheridan Painting) each won a Chicago PDCA dropcloth in the Hit-the-Dropcloth contest.
Twenty winners each took home $10.00 for their efforts in the Most Accurate Drive contest.
