2017 Buckeye Border FCA Golf Scramble
We were blessed with an incredible day of sunshine, a full course of golfers, and a fun time from start to finish! Eagle Rock Golf Course in Defiance, Ohio was the location of our annual FCA Golf Scramble, and we were blessed to have 23 teams in the field of play!
The FCA Golf Committee, staff, and a couple student leaders did a fantastic job of preparing, setting up, providing great snacks and welcoming each golfer. Rick Straley and Rex Stump assisted golf teams with a bonus putt, if needed. As one team approached Hole #6, I asked "How are you doing?" One of the players quickly replied, "We are five under!" He went on to say, "One of my golf balls is under a bush, another two under water, and two more under some tall weeds somewhere..." No animals, buildings, trees, or golfers were hurt...praise God! LOL! Praise God for a great day of humor, weather, and impact!
Impact? Thanks to the great contributions from our many hole sponsors, prize donors, corporate sponsors, and golfers we were able to raise over $12,000 for our Annual FCA Leadership Camp! Scholarships, Bibles, and camper supplies will not be an issue this summer thanks to the teamwork displayed by so many!
Teamwork? Over 50 people, businesses, and churches sponsored a hole! Over 40 prizes were donated!
For the record, the top three teams (From first to third): Team Thormeier, Team Baker, Team Guilford!
We look forward to sharing a camp report with everyone in August. Please stay tuned to our website to witness the results of this investment.
Mark your calendar for May of 2018 for next year's event!
