The 5th Annual Jim Tanner Classic July 5, 2011

Thank you for the 168 participants in the 4th annual Jim Tanner Caddy Classic. We raised $9,000 for the Jim Tanner Scholarship.  All had a good time despite the record setting 103 degree temperatures.

The 2011 version will be held on Tuesday, July 5th with an 8:00 shotgun and a 1:30 shotgun.  We will have a shared luncheon and will also have a presentation at the end of the day in the ballroom.

We also plan a reception on Monday July 4th from 4:00 to 7:00.  We will have hors d’ouevres and bar service on the patio.  We will have some chipping contests from the first tee, so that all can participate.

The participation has grown from 24 to 68 to 132 to 168 and my guess that in 2011 we will have 200!

My special thanks to the many contributors to the success of the Jim Tanner Caddy Classic.  Kevin Fortin, John Markley and Chris O’Neill have all been great committee members.  In 2010 we met 8 times planning the event. Also, special thanks to Sandy Markley for the record keeping and mailing.

If you know that you plan on playing in 2011, please send an email or call me at 401-597-5099.  Email = info@jimtannercaddyclassic.com

Special thanks to Benny Martin for providing the commemorative hats. Uncle Benny told me that the 2011 hats will be very special.
