With over 100 members golfing and eating and having a great time, we were able to raise money for the kids and show our honoree, Thad Matta how much we care! The stakes were high in the golf tournament with the #5 Par 3 Hole-in-one contest. No one got the hole in one or the $10,000 prize, but our past President, Fred Abbott was darn close!
The weather was absolutely beautiful as we whipped around Medallion Club and everyone was in great spirits as the Beer carts kept the spirits flowing!
As the day entered evening, the press start arriving for a glimpse of the very Tan Thad Matta who looked extremely relaxed and comfortable! He was pleasant and gave a 10 minute interview before we headed into the banquet to cheer him on and honor him for the great career that he had at OSU!
We were again joined by our MC Mr. Paul Keel's(Voice of the Buckeyes), and Mr. Dave Maetzold (Mr. Blue Jackets) and many past OSU greats like John Diebler (All time 3 point shooter in Big10 history) and even the great All American Clark Kellogg came in for Dinner!
So, a big THANK YOU to all of you that attended and supported this event. We hope that you enjoyed yourselves as much as we enjoyed hosting and we hope to see you all this fall as we begin another year of luncheons with speakers and coaches and cheering and all!!
Thanks to our new president Tom Sappington and his Golf committee chair, Fred Abbott for all of the hard work with the arrangements and we will see you all very soon!
