Winners Hit It Long and Straight at 24th Annual Alumni Golf Outing
The Delta Delta brothers in attendance at the 24th Annual Alumni Golf Outing hit the ball long and straight ... at least those who scored well.
The challenging Purdue Kampen Golf Course was once again the site of the Delta Delta Alumni Golf outing held June 21st. For the brothers who hit it long and straight, it was an enjoyable day. For the majority who didn’t always hit their ball where they wanted it to go, it was still a rewarding day of great brotherhood, even if you lost a few balls along the way.
Class of '81 Claims Bragging Rights
The winning foursome of Bart Burrell '81, Mark Herrmann '81, Jim MacDonald '80 and Tim Hull '81 shot an impressive 13 under par. Tied for second behind the leaders at 11 under par were the Class of '71 group of Larry Nicolet, Scott McConnell, Dave DeHebreard, and Steve Thompson; and the Class of '95 of Brian Griffiths, Guenter Haines, Eric Morgan and Craig Johnson.
There was a putt off in the Great Hall to see who got the second place plaques. The senior group of brothers in the Class of '71 calmly knocked the ball closest to the pin to take runner-up honors.
Chapter House Rekindles "Spirit of Youth"
Following the golf, the large group returned to their roots at 202 Littleton for refreshments, an excellent steak dinner, and the telling of stories of 300 yard drives and long putts made to save par. It is always great to see the "spirit of youth" reflected in all the brothers who return for this annual event.
The Classes of 1968, 1981 and 1995 had strong contingents return this year.
We have brothers Brian Griffiths '95 and Guenter Haines '95 to thank for organizing the day’s events, as well as Butch Brose '09 for working diligently to get the chapter house ready for the return of all the brothers. A special thanks also goes to those brothers who sponsored a hole. Your financial support makes a big difference.
Milestone Reached Next Year
Plan now to be part of the longest continuously running alumni fraternity event at Purdue by taking part in the 25th Annual Golf Outing in 2015. Let’s make this another memorable moment in Delta Delta history. Until then “hit them long and straight”. It makes the game so much easier.
