The morning of Saturday, June 3, 2017 started with light but steady rain, threatening to derail the tournament at Gambler Ridge Golf Course in Cream Ridge, NJ. By 11 AM, however, the rain had stopped and the clouds slowly cleared away to let the sunshine through. By the time the scheduled 12:30 shotgun start for our friendly competition arrived, the weather was fabulous. Almost no wind, low humidity, and comfortable sunshine throughout the duration!
Joining the tournament field was Camp Lebanon director, Donald Smith. He personally thanked the group for their loyal support of ABCNJ’s camping ministry during the BBQ dinner which followed the game.
Twenty-Four players and two hole sponsors bolstered the event’s proceeds. Through the years, this important fundraiser for our camping ministry has built a loyal group of supporters who participate year after year. And to them we express our deep gratitude.
This year’s winning foursome came from several congregations:
- Roy Gotta – First Baptist, New Brunswick
- Jim Childs – Central Baptist, Palmyra
- Scott Mayes, Sr. – Sacred Heart, Riverton
- Dr. Sandy Goldstein – Congregation Sons Of Israel, Manalapan
Be sure to keep a look out for ways to contribute to the growth and success of the tournament in 2018. We’ll have opportunities for hole sponsorship, event sponsorship, and for the donation of auction items.
