18th Annual Alumni Golf Outing Results
The 18th annual Alumni Golf Outing was held at West Point 9-11 June 2011 and consisted of 36 holes of golf: Captain’s Choice on Friday and the Callaway Handicap system on Saturday. Social events included a reception and dinner in Herbert Alumni Center, dinner at the Thayer Hotel, and an awards luncheon at the West Point Golf Course. Many of the graduates took advantage of the free lodging and stayed in the barracks, bringing back fond memories.
Ninety-seven graduates and guests, spanning over 61 years of USMA Classes, participated. The largest class represented was 1972 with fourteen members of the Class participating and seven guests. The senior graduate was Bill Quinn ’51 and the youngest was Vince Coppola ’11.
The first-place team on Friday included John Northrop ’72, Scott McQuarrie ’72, Bill Pavlick ’72, Paul Schreker. On Saturday, the winners were Steve Vidmar ’72 (Gross Score) and Bill Pavlick ‘72 (Callaway score).
Special congratulations to Drew Desjardins who shot his first hole in one! Drew claimed his hole in one on hole number six which was playing at 186 yards.
