The 2007 Chicago PDCA/FCA Golf Outing returned to beautiful Bloomingdale Golf Club for fair
weather and a great round of golf. A sunny day dawned on June 15th and comfortable morning
breezes warmed as the outing progressed. A full complement of 144 golfers signed up for a
round of golf and participated in the many contests and games devised by the Associates who
met them along the way. New this year was “Speed Golf,” wherein each foursome
struggled to beat the clock for lowest elapsed time on Hole No. 1, a par 4.
Honors for Low Gross went to the Midwest foursome of Roy Dennis, Ron Doogan, Trevor Ryor,
and John Burnes with a 59. Also recognized was the foursome of Gerry Harms, Rich Volkmer,
Mike Conrad, and Larry Thomas (most honest!) with an 84. Closest-to-the-Pin Contest winners
included Roy Dennis (Men's) and Tania Giese (Women's) on Hole #6. Ed McKinnie
“Hit the Dropcloth” on Hole #8 and won a cash prize as well as the PDCA dropcloth
for his efforts. Longest Putt on Hole #9 winners were Jason Steffen (Men's) and Sheri Zeman
(Women's). Rob Olszewski (Men's) and Sheri Zeman (Women's) hit the Longest Drive on Hole #18.
The Benjamin Moore foresome of Erik Gramer, Rich Schutt, Dave Swanson, and Ed Foreman outran
the field with a 1:30:47 in the Speed Golf contest. Festivities concluded with Casey Hoye of
J. M. Brennan Co. holding the winning raffle ticket for a $500 Cash Prize.
Congratulations to all…and make a note on your 2008 Calendar to attend next year's event on 6/20/2008!
