THE 16th ANNUAL DAVIS MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT 11/24/2017
Tom Clayton Speaks: Avon Park Senior Activities Center (APSAC) is the site for this annual tournament which is sponsored by Dick Davis in memory of his parents, George and Clara Davis, who were early members of our Club that was founded in 1936.
Notwithstanding the foregoing Thanksgiving Day Holiday, our 50 guests polished off coffee & doughnuts all morning and a sumptuous buffet of sub sandwiches and broasted chicken all afternoon!
During our luncheon, Dick was presented with a signed appreciation from all the Lovely Ladies who have had the “Dubious Fortune” of receiving his tutoring throughout his many years!
At lunch, Dick was also “Toasted & Roasted” unmercifully by the entire AP Board of Directors. Al Emmendorfer, Jim Allard, Gary Sorko, Joe Castiglia, Keith Morton, Larry Harvey and Tom Clayton worked Dick over pretty well. Larry Brown, Ruth Brown and John Bushee joined in, too! A lot of laughs were shared by the whole crowd.
In spite of the endless cuisine, all managed to play 3 games in the morning and an additional 3 games in the afternoon! Go here for Slide Show 1: https://photopeach.com/album/6yrc3u and 2) https://photopeach.com/album/11ebfr8
