Late News From the 4th Annual CEDPA Golf Tournament
An informal poll of various participants in the CEDPA Golf Tournament held in conjunction with the 1999 Monterey Conference indicates that it is never too late to speak about, or publish tourney results. Actually, that is not quite true -- an informal poll of the winners from that day yielded the aforesaid collective opinion.
As was the case with the three previous tournaments, the participants (I shall not use the collective term 'golfers') gathered at the course on Friday afternoon following the close of the final general session. The Carmel Valley Ranch course was beautiful, taking full advantage of the terrain of the coastal hills to create a special experience. Although a bit damp, our largest ever field of participants, some 48 strong set out to play the "scrambles" event. The hills provided shelter from the winds hitting the coast (yes, golf day was the only conference day during which it rained) so the occasional shower and enduring mist did not overly hamper the play or comfort of us all.
As to the winners, well no one managed the hole-in-one necessary to drive away the Jaguar "S" Type. No joke, this was actually an available prize thanks to our vendor sponsors, Novell Corporation and Tangent Computer. Now for that list of 'mudders' who brought home the tokens, cash and best of all, bragging rights:
|Longest Put Made
Grossmont Union High School District
|Longest Drive, female
San Mateo COE
|Longest Drive, male
Selma Unified SD
|Closest (Most Close?) to the Hole:
| Hole #5
Novell (in his tourney!)
| Hole #7
Long Beach Unified SD)
| Hole #13
|Lowest Scrambles Score, to the team of:
| Bill Bopp, DigiBopp
Rob Chambers (double winner!)
J.C. Evarts, EKM Computer
Terrell Tucker, Panama Buena Vista Union SD
Actually, everyone walked away with something, as the carts were laced with goodies and the post tournament drawing was well stocked by Novell. Terrell Tucker (to make up for being carried by his team) is assuring a great 5th year tournament in Santa Barbara, and Novell has already signed on as sponsor.
