“Prizes ranged from 1st place to 7th along with 6 closest to the pin awards. 1st place honors went to “Get Up, Stand Up” who consisted of the team of Mark Ray, Kyle Lightbourne and LeRoy Robinson” .

“The Best Dressed prize was won by the team of Arthur LaSalle, Jeff Richardson, Freddie Evans and Garry Burgess who sported the symbolic color pink in representation of the cause.

“Brian was extremely surprised when he arrived at the golf course to learn of this event and even more so when Docksiders hosted and sponsored an after the tournament lunch/dinner for the participants.

“It was an emotional day filled with appreciation and praise for the outstanding work that Brian has contributed over the many years.

“A plaque was presented to Brian from the Ocean View Golf Club and a cedar carving was presented by OJ Pitcher from the golfing community on a whole.

    I had a great time. It was a well attended and organized tournament for a great person (Brian) that his given so much of his time to support others in the past. Hats off to OJ and all the people at Ocean View (OJ said their were many) that put this tournament on for Brian. I have no doubt that if they were not trying to keep the event a secret from Brian that they could have had teams teeing off for days. I know of a few people that would have loved to play had they heard about it earlier.

    Five stars and standing ovation to the OVGC TEAM. Love you Bri
