As we arrived at the golf course to set up, the weather was looking a little dreary…I thought to myself, “Joe – hope you have been good up there, for we are going to need a little help with the weather today.”…
While 28 teams of 4 loaded into their golf carts – the rain turned to drizzle and then stopped when the carts took off. When the last few carts were arriving back at the clubhouse (at the end out the event) – the rain began again. I guess he is behaving himself up there.
Thank you to all the golfers and supporters who braved the cooler temperatures and made the outing a success.
To Jeff Hubbard – Thank you for coordinating this event and all your organization. You are an amazing person and I know why Joe considered you such a great friend.
To Cedar Valley – Thank you for helping us run an amazing outing. The service and professionalism shown was exceptional. Thank you Rod for dealing with all my special details.
To the Hole Sponsors – Thank you for BELIEVING in Team Vogel!
