2010 Delta Nu Memorial Scramble

15 years down and many more to go! This year’s tournament, the 15th consecutive, went off with a hitch and we are getting lucky with the weather – no issues except heat and humidity and wind to be had since the beginning. Thanks again to all 93 golfers that made the trip to Maryville for this year’s tournament. This was the biggest field to date with two more golfers than last year. Over the 15-year-history, 193 different players have participated. 

Congratulations to the team of Mark Gerling 1044, Todd Fordyce 1091, Fred Gude 1140, and Mike Wynne 1059, who were the winning team with a 16-under-par 56. We all hope you’re back next year to defend your title. The full list of results and pin prize winners can be found at the end of this summary.
Memorials Mulligans and Tee Box Markers
Through the sale of Memorial (Team) Mulligans, $1,020 was raised and we were able to place Memorial Fund Bricks on the Dick Wiles Teke for Life Donations Wall for Jay Schug 321, Dick Wiles 365, and Richard Larsen 642. We also added to the funds of Wayne Cherry 1014, Chris Sams 870, Steve Healey 912, Ryan Tesdell 1178, Bill Bolyard 609, Cyril Dougherty 14, William Hunt 25, Scott Eckard 449 and Paul Jones 1152.
Memorial Tee Box Markers debuted this year to further memorialize those Fraters that have passed on to the Chapter Eternal. The first four markers were for Fraters that had golfed in the tournament; they were for Lee King 296, Pete Greve 580, Ryan Tesdell 1178 and Kurt Gentry 1280.
Prior to the start of this year’s tournament, a marker was sponsored by Mark Rinker for Chris Sams 870. Chris’ marker will appear on a hole at next year’s event. Memorial Tee Box Markers can be sponsored for a $100 donation. For more information, please contact Brent Steffens at mrbrentsteffens@yahoo.com.
The event ended with dinner, awards and a presentation on the state of the chapter by Alumni Board of Advisors President Mark Witthar 853 and Delta Nu Alumni Association Director Brad Shelton 651. The event raised over $1,400 for the general fund of the Delta Nu Alumni Association.
